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.
The despicable Ramon Cota has murdered an innocent father and child and is exporting illegal drugs into the USA. When Colonel Scott McCoy from the original film, and his sworn partner attempt to bring him to court, their efforts are all in vain, as he is let off virtually Scott free. Unable to contain his rage, Scott's buddy furiously lashes out at him in court, to Cota's anger. He exacts the same ritual on his wife and child as he did on the previous Father and kid. Out on a personal mission of vengeance, the buddy finds himself mercilessly killed at Cota's hands. When an arsenal of soldiers attempt to go in and bring Cota and his army down, they are taken hostage, surely to be executed soon. McCoy leads a brigade of skydiving commandos in, along with himself, to rescue the hostages and exact violent revenge upon Cota.Written by
Ramon Cota has a Cessna sitting on the arch over the entrance to his compound. This is a reference to Pablo Escobar, a similar flamboyant real-life Colombian drug dealer who also had such an entrance to his compound. See more »
When McCoy is infiltrating Cota's home, the guard on the balcony has a rifle slung over his shoulder. When McCoy grabs him and pulls him over the side the rifle is no longer there. See more »
I do not know how you can not say that this is a good movie. Chuck Norris is not supposed to be a realistic actor...his soul purpose is to be cheesy and take it up the gut everytime against the bad guys. So yeah, he is invincible to bullets, but aren't all good guys? And on top of that, he uses the total gym which makes him even more all powerful. You better watch out buddy, cuz Chuck is coming for ya...
