Prequel to the first Missing In Action, set in the early 1980s it shows the capture of Colonel Braddock during the Vietnam war in the 1970s, and his captivity with other American POWs in a brutal prison camp, and his plans to escape.
After Mike is shot on the ski slope, Booker rides the snowmobile down to chase the shooter. In the shot showing his view, everything is clear ahead of him. In the next shot, showing him from a bystander's viewpoint, Mike's yellow clad body is in full view. See more »
Everything went wrong by the numbers. And that takes planning.

UK cinema and video versions were cut by 7 secs by the BBFC to remove an ear clap and a shot of a guard being killed with a throwing star. See more »
The story of Good Guys Wear Black(1979) interestingly enough resembles the plot lines of Steven Seagal's early films of Above the Law(1988), Hard to Kill(1990), and Marked for Death(1991). The direction by Ted Post is very good. Good Guys Wear Black(1979) and the Dirty Harry picture, Magnum Force(1973) are the two best films for this average director. Chuck Norris stars in what is one of his better films before he would give up the cinema for television. Anne Archer is good in an early film role before she was a respectable actress. James Franciscus is terrific as the cold blooded and ruthless Politican Conrad Morgan. Has what is probably the best stunt of Chuck Norris's career with the scene where he leaps through the front window of a car and into an assassin for a martial arts kick.
