One of the best Vietnam films from the 1980'sBy a customer from London, UK , 08 Jun 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This was one of the highest grossing independent films of its day. The directing reminds us of Howard Hawks and Kurasawa. Great character development and buildup to the grand finale. We know it's coming, but the ride is so enjoyable!
'Yin! He's not dead!'
In fact, this film was completed before MIA I, but Cannon Films thought that MIA I would pull more at the box office, so this one was akwardly released as a 'prequel'. It's more enjoyable viewing the film knowing that it's in fact the first of the series. Enjoy the ride regardless!

Chuck Norris runs wild like a tiger!By a customer from Orpington , 03 Oct 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideThis is an exciting action adventure thriller. It explains how the character escaped from the bad guys in the first film, and it gives you a representation of what happened to the prisoners of war after America pulled out of Vietnam, and how they were kind of treated like scum. Rather than being a sequel, it's an interesting prequel, and it shows the indomitable spirit of Chuck Norris who will not be broken by the Vietnamese tyrants. And when he gets loose, he runs a rampage, and gives a payback so hard it leaves them in debt for life! It's a nice mixture of martial arts and gun fighting. Some die-hard martial arts fans may be disappointed at the amount he uses a gun, but to be realistic, even with all his masterful karate skills, he couldn't very well fight the Vietnamese army unarmed. It's not very politically correct, and people may get offended watching it, but it is just a movie, so in a situation like this, it's just one of those films to watch and enjoy. Two thumbs up! Highly recommended for action and martial arts film fans!

M I A 2By a customer from Grays , 18 Mar 2009Another good all action war film from chuck norris enjoyable from start to finish
classic no nonsense funBy Eoin Kelly from London , 12 Dec 2007this film is brillient. it has everything from explosions to nudity, with a message to give to the viewer: 'dont mess with chuck norris with a bag over his head'.
worth it for the opening sequence alone.
Pathetic - On Par with BollywoodBy a customer from Surrey, England , 30 Dec 2006Chuck Norris is ...... Rambo ..... I dont thnk so, and I am a Chuck Norris fan. It would get zero stars if I could have done so. An appauling follow on to MIA. Briefings before two separate assaults on evil bad bad guys: 'if there's fireworks throw these grenades' and the immortal one beloved of those who think they are Rambo - 'cover me I'm going in'. Nope, bad movie, bad plot, appauling Production ending with an escape from the inpenetrable jungle in a Huey chopper that happened to be lying around - geez give me a break. Only for the most die hard of die hard Chuck Norris fans, otherwise avoid it. Made for simple souls who think a few explosions and a few guns make a good action film. Its Dire - really really Dire ......
