Product Description

American servicemen are still being held captive in Vietnamand it's up to one man to bring them home in this blistering, fast-paced action/adventure starring martial arts superstar Chuck Norris.Following a daring escape from a Vietnamese POW camp, Special Forces Colonel James Braddock (Norris) is on a mission to locate and save remaining MIAs. Aided by a beautiful State Department official (Lenore Kasdorf) and a former Army buddy (M. Emmet Walsh), Braddock amasses top secret information and state-of-the-art weaponry. Now this one-man army is prepared to blast his way into Vietnam but will he be able to blast his way back out?

Amazon.com

Through the idyllic but war-ridden jungles of Vietnam strides Chuck Norris as Braddock, one-man army, killing the enemy in droves with every gun burst, hauling wounded buddies to safety draped across his shoulders like sacks of wheat. He doesn't wear a helmet because clearly his head is not a particularly vulnerable area. As he leaps upon a vicious Vietcong who's brutally bayoneting a buddy of Braddock's, he plucks the rings from two hand grenades--and wakes from a recurring nightmare. Haunted by his memories, Braddock joins a delegation sent to Vietnam to negotiate for the return of missing-in-action prisoners of war (hence the movie's title, Missing in Action). But when the communist government accuses Braddock of war crimes, he fights back! It's all pretty preposterous--particularly the subtler absurdities, like when Braddock dresses entirely in stealthy ninjalike black except for his head, allowing his feathered blond locks to fly free--but fans of this kind of jingoistic action flick will find it satisfying enough. The fight scenes are frequent, if not particularly imaginative. Also featuring the great character actor M. Emmet Walsh as an old army buddy who helps Braddock out when the going gets tough. --Bret Fetzer

Let's get this straight: This ain't Shakespeare! This is sheer escapism for those of us who believe the NVA body count was not high enough. I've been rediscovering Chuck Norris movies lately (because they're cheap in the Blockbuster clearance bin) and I'm having a lot of fun. They're pure '80's schlock, but it's fun schlock, and delivers some no-nonsense commentary on the every-day guy (okay-Superevery-day guy) vs. the system.

Missing in Action has plenty of implausible action, but it sets up and sustains the tension very well. I spent quite a bit of the movie urging Braddick to "go,go GO!" from the edge of my seat. One thing it shares, unfortunately with some of the REALLY cheap knock-offs of the Rambo era is the length of the actor's hair. I know its the early '80's, but come on! Get a haircut for the flashback scenes! Somehow I can handle ONE guy killing an entire NVA battalion, but the hair-its GOT to be correct or its just not believable. True, I could nitpick this movie further, like when Braddick puts on a BLACK outfit to climb down a WHITE building so the guards don't see him, but let's look at the overall picture here: It delivers a good fantasy. Norris is at his peak as an action star and its a blast watching him kick, stab, and shoot his way through Vietnam. Put beer in hand, recline Lay-Z-Boy and enjoy!

To be truthful, if it were any other person as the star, I'd probably give this no stars. But still, I have a special place in my heart for Chuck Norris. Most people know going into a movie like this that it is not driven by brilliant story telling. You want a fun movie where the hero kicks butt and takes names. Well, it takes a while before Chuck does those things. For me, its a let down because when he DOES serve up justice, its almost entirely with guns and explosives. This from the 6 time world karate champ & 8th degree grand master in taekwondo. I realize this is an 'action' movie and not a 'martial arts' movie, but Chuch could have at least thrown us a bone on this one.
At the same time, I still love the feel of the whole 'We are America, screw everyone else' attitude. Pretty good fun for a lazy Saturday night.

"Missing in Action" is the originator of all 80's military action movies. Chuck Norris, as burned-out Vietnam vet James Braddock, lives a tormented life knowing there are American troops still being held captive in Vietnam. Somehow he hitches a ride to Vietnam to meet with the Vietnamese General about POW's. Then he sneaks away, meets up with his old war buddy Tuck, and proceeds to equip himself and start to blow things up. Yes, it's mindless, but it's miles ahead of "Sense and Sensibility." For a full Norris experience, watch this movie, then "Missing in Action 2" and then "Delta Force." You'll be a better person afterwards.

This was a very good movie. Braddock(Chuck Norris) is part of a delegation who is sent to negotiate the release of American P.O.W.s. Braddock immediately comes under fire. He then leads a secret rescue mission back to Vietnam. Here the action picks up. The jungle scenery is very original. There is one action sequence after the other. Braddick is forced to do battle with many of his old enemies. After many battles Braddock continues on his mission. The ending of the movie is very dramatic. The actors in this movie were very good as well. The movie also had a very good plot. Be sure to see this film. You will not be dissapointed.

This is one of the best action movies I have ever seen before (even though its a little old) because Vietnam war is a cool thing to base a movie on and the musical score was just the best thing. The action sequences and storyline was great, and it really is able to portray the events of Vietnam war very well. This movie will always be a great one.

MISSING IN ACTION 1 & 2

Distributor: MGM Video (US)

Kicking off the Chuck Norris Blu-ray archives comes the Vietnam war saga Missing in Action. The film along with its two sequels presents the story of one Col. James Braddock who returns to Saigon years after the war has been officially declared over, in the hunt for POWs still rumoured to be held behind former enemy lines.

With classic Chuck Norris movies you kind of know what you are in for from the very beginning and these two are certainly no different. Packed full of the usual over the top action sequences (only this time within an extensive jungle setting) the films deliver a pretty entertaining ride thanks in part to fairly decent production values courtesy of Canon Video. The second film in the series is actually filmed as a prequel to the first showcasing the backstory of life inside the POW camp, years before Braddock would eventually break out and return to seek vengeance and a few minor continuity issues aside, flows together rather well with Norris delivering the usual one man army approach to anything that gets in his way.

Making their region free Blu-ray debut as Walmart exclusives, both movies are presented with 1080p 1:85:1 transfers which look surprisingly good. Detail is impressive, colours are vibrant and black levels appear deep and well defined. Considering the previous budget DVD releases these films have seen, the new Blu-ray transfers will surely please collectors everywhere as the films themselves have never looked better and in a direct comparison to the DVD prints simply blows away the competition.
