Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Missing in Action

Colonel Braddock (Chuck Norris) is a Army veteran who goes back to Vietnam to rescue his fellow soliders being held as P.O.W.'s. The American government wants nothing to do with this mission as they deny the fact that Vietnam is still holding American P.O.W.'s years after the war has been completed. Braddock himself was a former P.O.W. and knows much about the lay of land in Vietnam. He tracks down one of his fellow comrades who has a boat, hires a helicopter pilot, raids a weapons compound and sets a course to rescue his trapped comrades.
