The number on the Vietnamese patrol boat is 419 which is the same number as the boat destroyed in Missing in Action 1. The arrival airport is definitely not Bangkok and the car chase scenes are also not in Bangkok. In Thailand cars drive on the LEFT, not the right. An elementary error. See more »

In the wake of "Rambo 3" and a bunch of police action thrillers with Vietnam War veterans or references and homages to the war as well as the recent hits of Oliver Stone and Stanley Kubrick, "Braddock: Missing In Action 3" doesn't have a shot in accomplishing anything original since similar material has already been done way too many times before during the second half of the 1980's. However, Chuck Norris' starring role as the Vietnam War veteran who goes on another deadly mission to rescue more POW's prevents this film from being a complete downer but doesn't prevent it from becoming too routine.
