Trivia.
1)The opening of this film establishes the character of Jim Braddock as having been present during the fall of Saigon in 1975. However, this completely contradicts the events set out in, Missing in Action 2: The Beginning (1985) which shows Braddock being captured in Vietnam in 1972 & held as a P.O.W. for over ten years prior to his escape & the events that take place in the original, "Missing In Action." Therefore, there is no way he could have also been in Saigon in 1975.
2)This is Aaron Norris first film to direct & the first with Chuck Norris as they made more movies together after this film.
The "Mil-24 Hind" in reality is a Sikorsky S-62, but modified to look like a gunship. The same helicopter was also used in the movie Red Scorpion (1988).
3)'Joseph Zito', director of Missing in Action (1984) & Invasion USA (1985) originally was the director on Braddock: Missing In Action III. He & Chuck Norris had creative & personal differences so Aaron Norris, who was the second unit director, took over as director.
4)Final Missing In Action movie.
5)This DVD review is based upon a Region 2 import as to date Braddock: Missing In Action 3 hasn't had a official UK distribution DVD release.

What's The Story.
When Colonel James Braddock is told that his Asian wife & 12-year-old son are still alive in Communist Vietnam, he mounts a one-man assault to free them.

Armed with the latest high-tech firepower, Braddock fights his way into the heart of the country & ends up battling his way out rescuing several dozen abused Amerasian children in tow!, Struggling to keep them alive while outmaneuvering a sadistic Vietnamese officer, Braddock ignites the jungle in shootouts & brutal combat in a blazing race to cross the boarder & race for freedom.

Timelord Thoughts.
Braddock: Missing In Action 3 is a underrated Chuck Norris movie that has plenty to recommend it, there's some brilliant staged action sequences directed brilliantly by Chuck's brother Aaron Norris, a decent script with some emotional depth especially when Braddock is reunited with his wife & finds out he has a son which quickly turns to tragedy for one of them.

Chuck Norris is decent enough playing James Braddock for a third time & gets in the thick of the movies highly energetic action scenes & kicks plenty of ass & shoots loads of bad guys with his new gun, but Chuck comes across slightly more cheesy in this film than the previous Missing In Action 2 & never once do you think his character Braddock will be defeated.

This third movie showcases Braddock fighting the Vietnamese army...'AGAIN' & comes up against another sadistic Vietnamese Colonel 'AGAIN' & there features another torture sequence that in this film goes on for over 8 minutes, these scenes feels like its threading over the same ole ground of the previous two Missing In Action movies & doesn't really add anything new.

Overall, Braddock: Missing In Action 3 is an action packed Chuck Norris movie that has decent production values & features some excellent action sequences directed by Chuck's brother Aaron Norris & is a fitting conclusion for the James Braddock character who know can stop fighting, raise his son & hopefully live happily ever after.

Timelord Rating.

It's unfortunate that this film is only available in Region 2, but thankfully today you can either program your blu-ray player to be all region or you can buy one already set. I enjoy this third installment of the film better than the first film. Go figure.
