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.
The picture was a change of pace for its star Chuck Norris, who shed his martial arts image to becomes a true street-fighter character. See more »

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 »
This time Chuck Norris confronting an ominous psycho-killer
At a little town from Texas a tough sheriff (Chuck Norris) and his helper(Stephen Furst) pit a dangerous killer series with a supernatural force. The monstrous man is a Frankestion-alike creation from scientific (Steven Keats, William Finley, Ron Silver) and acting similarly to Jason Vorhees and Michael Myers.
This Chuck Norris vehicle contains action-packed, thrills, chills and lots of blood and violence. The comic relief at charge of Stephen Furst as silly and botcher police saying stupid things , furthermore imitating Taxi Driver's Robert De Niro. Chuck Norris demonstrates his qualities as action hero on a fights against some nasty punkies into a saloon by means of punches, kicks , bounds and leaps. Peter Bernstein's screeching musical score is made by synthesizer . The motion picture is regularly directed by Michael Miller. This is an inferior Norris film in spite of it he was on his best period with his hits such as ¨The Octagon, An eye for an eye, Forced vengeance, Lone Wolf MacQuade, and Missing in action¨ among others. Rating : Average but entertaining. The picture will appeal to Chuck Norris fans.
