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.
Dan Stevens is the sheriff of a small Texas town who checks out a disturbance which turns to murder. The killer is still in the house and he tries to kill Dan, but Dan stops him and arrests him. The killer attempts to flee, but is shot and killed and is taken to a medical institute. Three doctors, led by Dr. Philip Spires, operate on the killer and using a formula the doctors made, they bring him back to life. If that's not bad enough, the formula also made the killer indestructible. Dr. Tom Halman tries to stop the killer, but he and his wife are killed. After the two remaining doctors are killed, the killer goes after Dr. Halman's sister Alison, and it's up to Sheriff Dan Stevens to stop him.
When Dr. Spires finds the body of Dr. Vaughn, the syringe in Vaughn's neck can be seen vibrating with his pulse. See more »
Dr. Philip Spires:
Bones will mend, wounds will heal, diseases cured. Isn't that worth everything? Anything!
Dr. Tom Halman:
Yeah, look, before we go to Stockholm and pick up the Nobel Prize I want the works done on him.

Although the UK cinema version was uncut all UK video versions were cut by 41 secs by the BBFC to edit some scenes of violence. These included an axe blow to a man's head, the terrorizing and murder of Nancy Halman, and the discovery of the corpse of Dr Vaughn with a syringe in his neck. See more »
If you can get past the painfully slow and boring parts of this film, you should have a rather good time watching it much like I did. It's a fun little horror from the 80's with the ridiculous but hilarious Chuck Norris so of course, you can expect cheesy lines and poorly placed kung fu moves from him.
I was actually surprised by some of the suspense in this film. They actually managed quite a bit of it. The story is pretty silly but it seems like every Chuck Norris movie has the same premise in a way: some sort of bad guy is terrorizing people and Chuck Norris has to fight him. The acting was pretty bad but I guess that's expected. Don't expect an Oscar worthy film from this but turn off your brain for 100 minutes and have a good time!
