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.
When the Black Tiger commandos get in the helicopter at the beginning of the mission, Major Booker (Chuck Norris) enters the front of the helicopter and sits in the right hand seat. US military helicopter pilot in command fly from the right hand seat. If Major Booker had sat in the front of the helicopter he would have sat in the left hand seat however, sitting in the front seat would not allow an easy tactical egress at the Landing Zone so he probably would have sat in the rear with his squad.

I don't know what it is about this film, but I can never seem to tire of it. The acting is nothing special, the camera work is dated, and the plot is confusing at times. But this doesn't effect the enjoyment I receive every time I put this DVD on and watch it again. In fact, the story grows more intriguing with every viewing. If you are a Chuck Norris fan, this is an especially fantastic find, since he is at rare form from start to finish. The plot has Norris race around the western US trying to stop an assassin gunning for members of his former CIA Vietnam unit. This may be one of the first films to feature truly "extreme" stunts, including snowmobiling, jumping thru a windshield of a moving car, along with other motorcycle, race car, and skiing related action. Luckily, now you can find the DVD in discount stores easily, and I believe it's worth picking up.
