Braddock mounts a one-man assault to free his wife and son who are still being held in a Vietnam prison camp.
The opening of this film establishes the character of James 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 and held as a P.O.W. for over ten years prior to his escape and the events that take place in the original, Missing in Action (1984). Therefore, there is no way he could have also been in Saigon in 1975.
I warned you Braddock not to fuck with us.
Col. James Braddock: Don't try to stop me Littlejohn.
Littlejohn: You're stopped.
The Bangkok Metropolitan Police vehicles seen in the film (using a Mitsubishi Lancer sedan) are painted in a blue and white livery - the real-life Bangkok Metropolitan Police vehicles are painted black and white.
German Video-Release (rated 16) was cut in many places to reduce violence (bullets impacting, the torture, wife's headshot front view, neck-breaks and more). Uncut Version was never released on Video but was to be seen one time on Free-Tv in 1996
