During this production shoot on location in the Philipines, a Philipine Air Force helicopter hired by the Cannon Film Group, crashed into Manila Bay killing four Filipino soldiers and wounding five other people. Curiously enough, this accident occurred the same day the "Twilight Zone Tragedy" verdict was handed down in Los Angeles Superior Court. See more »
The helicopter chasing Braddock and his truck full of kids, fires 20+ rockets at them, despite the fact the chopper only has two rocket pods; each with a capacity of 6 rockets per pod (as can be seen in close up). See more »
Finnish Video-Release was heavily cut (approx 12.00 min), mainly because of the new censorship-law which didn't allowed any movies above rating K-16 go on to video without cuts. DVD-version is uncut. See more »
No one put a better action than Braddock on the 80', Cannon group in those glorious times dominated the home video marketplace here in Brazil, I used to went a rental shops on VHS's peak era, in those countless low budge action pictures, Menahen Golan & Yoran Globus were the producers, the Braddock's trilogy, this was the last one, he goes to Vietnam try to rescue his wife, which he supposedly thought already death and his unknown son, as always happened he has face some Vietnamese colonel in charge of the red Army, the baddass hero struggles against all squadron of soldiers with some scratches and little wounds only, leaving behind endless bodies on the ground, emphatisizing the proposal of the picture is entertain only, forget the consistency and truthfulness, Braddock was the best amusement on Sunday night session on TV!!!
First watch: 1990 / How many: 2 / Source: TV-DVD / Rating: 5.5
