MISSING IN ACTION (1984 U.S.) D: JOSEPH ZITO W: JAMES BRUNER/JOHN CROWTHER/LANCE HOOL P: MENAHEM GOLAN/YORAM GLOBUS
Chuck Norris is a former long time P.O.W. who goes back to `nam to rescue M.I.A.`s that the Vietnamese goverment (who want Norris arrested for war crimes) deny having in this slow-moving RAMBO clone. Norris doesn`t even get into the jungles (along with comic relief M. Emmet Walsh) until the final half hour. But overall it`s a better film than RAMBO and i liked the fact that Norris makes up his mind to go back to `nam after watching a Spiderman cartoon on tv. With James Hong. John Barrett was a stuntman. Zito and Chuck also made INVASION U.S.A. for Cannon. A prequel followed.
