Quit Your Whining, Liberals--It's a Guy's Flick (by yarborough)
After reading all the Bin Ladens here claiming that "Missing in Action" is a "pseudo-patriotic", "racist" or jingoistic film, I thought I'd weigh in: "M.I.A." was made for the same audience that all overdone, action-packed, unreal, B-films are, AND for the same purpose--pure entertainment. I'm no mind-reader but the people watching "M.I.A" aren't doing it for a serious understanding of past social and political issues or controversies. They're watching it to see guys get beaten up with karate moves or shot up by M-60s, or to <more>
see completely naked women make total asses out of themselves by dancing around or strutting their stuff. I pity those who use their review of this film to make some grand, anti-American political statement. If you know what Norris flicks are like and you can't stand them, why the Hell did you pop this one in!?
Better than Rambo! This is the best movie Chuck Norris ever made by far. Missing In Action doesn't take itself too seriously, just good hot fun! It's got none of that PC moralizing the other Viet Nam pretenders wallow in. Too bad parts two and three couldn't match the original.
I liked it. (by Rottweiler)
Okey, first of all...those who where against the Vietnam war hate this movie, no doubt about that. But i liked it, because i have great respect for those American servicemen lost or died in Vietnam. Chuck Norris performance in this and the following two movies is really good. He is a fine actor, i hope we could see more of him /One thing thats irritates me is that i can hear the same sound FX in this movie as i hear in 'Invasion USA' .. but thats just about it.
Better than Rambo (by paulsier)
Yeah, I know low budget...but still good entertainment. This is the first one, not to be confused with the 2 mediocre sequels. Former Special Forces Col. James Braddock escaped from a from a Vietnamese communist POW camp. The Washington establishment want him to be part of a high ranking delegation to put the MIA issue to bed. Braddock reluctantly agrees to join the delegation and fly to Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon, where he insults various communist murderers/butchers and upsets the liberal pantywaist American delegation, except for the the sympathetic and beautiful Ann/Lenore Kadorf. Braddock <more>
then goes rogue to rescue the imprisoned American soldiers/MIAs. Much superior to the sanitized TV version, we see the beautiful Lenore in a nice nude scene. However it is the last scene which almost makes this movie a 10! Naturally it was panned by the commie/marxist/responsible conservative movie critics.
A damn good bad-ass action war film from the 80's i ever saw my second favorite Chuck Norris Film (by NightmareOnElmStreetFan)
Missing in Action is a good damn bad-ass action war film from the 80's I ever saw, it is my second favorite film from Chuck Norris. I love, love love, love this film to death. I enjoy watching it so much I enjoy the action in this movie. It was directed from Joseph Zito who directed Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter, The Prowler and Invasion U.S.A. another bad-ass actioner with Chuck Norris. This is a decent solid action war film. Yes it is not great it so cheese or it is so bad film it ripped off "Rambo" no it is so good because it is so good movie.This is the best in <more>
the "Missing in Action" trilogy of course the film Is so misunderstood and underrated it is an entertaining action film from Cannon Group Inc. and I love it. It is not for everyone but only for good action junkies like myself. James Braddock, a US Special Forces colonel who escaped from a Vietnamese prison camp during the war and proceeds to return to Vietnam ten years later to investigate a report of American POW's still imprisoned in the country. Braddock then launches his own mission to free the imprisoned soldiers.This is a rescue mission in which James Braddock goes back to Vietnam to save his American comrades a bad ass action film. Chuck Norris blast bad guys to pieces. He climbs the walls on the hotel, uses his martial arts to disable guards he is a bad ass. I love the music score from Jay Chattaway it is a beautiful score to listen too. The film is rated - R. I love all the "Rambo" movies so much but I am definitely not going to compare this movie to Rambo: First Blood Part II, because Missing in Action is a stand up alone film and that a damn good one. They don't me em like this anymore. Cobra get's 5.7 while this movie only 5.4? I don't understand the hate for this film I don't. They are memorable dialogues Chuck rescue an American POW in the jungles of Vietnam.Col. James Braddock Chuck Norris opens fire with the M60 mounted on the fast boat and yes Braddock looks like Rambo in First Blood with M60 so yes I love this film. You can see my username it is Rambofanlife so yes this one men-army that goes against his own government to prove their are still American POW captured in Vietnamese camps like he was once. He saved all the captured people. So yes it is a decent film because it has rescue mission. Chuck Norris also uses his martial arts in the film.Missing in Action stars: Chuck Norris, M. Emmet Walsh, Lenore Kasdorf, Ernie Ortega, E. Erich Anderson and James Hong.The movie has ton's of action it has explosions, a lot of gun fire shootouts, martial arts, climbing the electric wire and walls, you have even bobby traps, you see a lot of boats on the water. My favorite action sequence of all time is Braddock coming out of the water with M60 machinegun like Rambo in super slo- mo and blasting bad guys to pieces. The explosions, the gun fire everything is practical. No CGI, shaky cam in the movie real hard R fight scenes. This was before the CGI and shaky cam took over the action movies today. So yes I still love 80's action movies and Missing in Action is my film probably I am the only that talks on a god way about the film.Yes it was made back to back with "Missing in Action 2: The Beginning" and that film should have been released first but they released this movie instead so what? This movie get's 9 good score I would have gave 10 but during the explosion in Bangkok a kid died that took shocked me in the film.
Still good after watching it for the first time 32 years ago. Maybe it's a little cheesy but that adds to the fun. Don't listen to all the snowflakes.
classic.... (by siektwo)
CLASSIC.........bad movie. It does all the things that critics would laugh at and more. It has bad acting, and a lame story. However, it's a lot of fun for those of you that enjoy lazy afternoon cheeseball films such as myself .The best scene has to be the slow motion shot of Chuck Norris emerging from the swamp water with a rifle letting rounds off and keeping a "stone face"...hahahaha.Oh wow, how i love this movie. You really cannot argue a movie's credibility with a powerhouse lead actor such as Chuck Norris.RATING: 8/10 - Because it's an entertaining bad <more>
movie...great for those times when you're bored out of your mind on a rainy day.
Defending Chuck Norris my favorite underrated bad-ass action war flick (by ivo-cobra8)
In Thursday 4th May Chuck Norris arrived in Ljubljana Slovenia and he visit us to make a car commercial. He stays by us till tomorrow then he returns back to his homeland. I love Chuck Norris I grew up watching his movies and Missing in Action defines my childhood and I grew up watching this movie. I am writing this review in honor of Chuck Norris. Slovenia loves Chuck Norris! Missing In Action is an underrated solid, very decent, good, pure bad-ass action war flick. It is my number 1 favorite Chuck Norris movie! I love this movie to death and I have it on Blu-ray in Hi-def in my collection. <more>
I love the music score from Jay Chattaway it is a beautiful score. it is rated Hard-R RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. It is not for kids it is a pure sample entertaining flick, it has explosions, a lot of gun shootouts, martial arts, climbing the electric wire and walls, you have even bobby traps, you see a lot of boats on the water, a lots of jungle and it is one-man army action hero type. One man on a mission to find American POW's who are still imprisoned in the country. You'll see lots of heavy automatic and explosive weapons, and you'll see them used well. This is my favorite Chuck Norris film for the simple fact that it has one of the best action hero moments ever with Braddock coming out of the water in super slo- mo and blasting bad guys to pieces.Missing in Action and Missing in Action 2: The Beginning were made back-to-back, with part 2 being ready first, so they released it as this movie, Missing in Action. I am defending this film: Why I am keep hearing from film critics and assholes like Maziun who has no dick about movies how bad this movie is, it is as a rip-off of the Rambo film series. Rambo was better, Rambo was looking for American POW's and blah, blah, blah! Shut up all of you!! Missing in Action and Chuck Norris is not yours kind of type action hero or his movies, they are just not for you so f**k You! "It was more like 20,000. Why don't you tell us why there was a price on my head?" *For your war crimes, of course.* , "For killing assholes like you!" I am big fan of Rambo movies I love all of them, but Missing in Action is different Vietnam action-War movie who is really fictional portrayed. The movie is not perfect, it is not great, realistic, or the best it does have a plot holes which I am little confused but I love Colonel James Braddock I love the character portrayed. Chuck Norris does a fine and solid job as the hero. I love the action the rescue mission I love this movie from the 80's and I miss these kind of action movies today. They don't make'em like this anymore. He saves people, he saves 4 American POW prisoners and he help them I love the ending of the movie. I love the jungle I love how Col. James Braddock Chuck Norris uses the M60 during the POW rescue mission and he opens fire with the M60 mounted on the fast boat classic scene and he blast all the bad guys away.There's a lot of Chuck Norris sneaking around in this movie more than Norris smashing guys, but that's present too. Norris doesn't take any crap, and I love the muscle duel between him and one enemy where Chuck slaps a knife right into his heart, literally. James Hong makes an appearance as General Trau as the villain and he's good at his job. He constantly taunts Braddock until Braddock literally attacks Trau in his sleep! The movie really lets you know where they stand on the issue of whether or not there are POWs being secretly kept in Vietnam with its exhilarating, "In your face, Vietnamese government!" ending.Missing in Action get's 8/10 it my favorite Chuck Norris film a brisk action/adventure with good old Chuck playing a stoic American super soldier fighting for America's freedom no matter the risks. It's a great Regan-era action flick, unapologetic and brutal.Missing in Action is a 1984 American action film directed by Joseph Zito and starring Chuck Norris.

Great Norris Film!, That's Exciting And Well Made!, (by callanvass)
This is a great Norris film that's exciting and well made. It's somewhat similar to Rambo, however it's nowhere near as good, but still it's an exciting little flick, with exciting action and good performances!. The main problem i had with this was, it really didn't have a main villain, and James Hong is absolutely wasted, however it makes up for it, with a fantastic performance From Chuck Norris and lots of exciting action!. It did take a little while to going, however it was never boring, and the setting was great, plus Chuck Norris and M. Emmet Walsh have very good <more>
chemistry together. A lot of people found this to be dull, while i admit it starts off a little dull, it soon turns into action packed, and becomes a really enjoyable film!. This is a great Norris film, and i highly recommend it!. The Direction is very good. Joseph Zito does a very good job here, with good angles, good shots, and keeping the film at a very good pace for the most part. There is a tiny bit of gore. We get a couple knives in the chest and some gunshot wounds. The Acting is great!. Chuck Norris is Fantastic as always, and is fantastic here, he is very likable, aggressive, kicks that ass, had good chemistry M . Emmet Walsh, and while he does not have a whole lot of dialog, he still was tons of fun to watch! Norris rules! . M. Emmet Walsh is very good here, he had very good chemistry with Norris and did his job very well. David Tress is annoying as The Senator, and did not have much to do. Lenore Kasdorf is good in her screen time. James Hong is always excellent, but is sadly waste here, and it kinda made me mad. Rest of the cast do fine. Overall i highly recommend this one!. ***1/2 out of 5
