It’s time once again to honor the Cannon Films catalog from the VHS heyday. This week, it’s an action classic with “Missing in Action”.
This week, we dive back into the Cannon Films catalog with this Chuck Norris flick “Missing in Action” from 1984!
Missing in Action is a 1984 American action film directed by Joseph Zito and starring Chuck Norris. It is set in the context of the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue. Colonel Braddock, who escaped a Vietnamese prisoner of war camp ten years earlier, returns to Vietnam to find American soldiers listed as missing in action during the Vietnam War.
Join Josh, Donny & Professor Smoak (Will is back on assignment) as we have fun with the film that started it all for Mr. Norris’s collaborations with Golan & Globus! Also, the author of The Cannon Film Guide, Austin Trunick, joins us with his latest “Cannon Chronicles” segment!
This critically panned film became one of Norris’ most popular films. Join us to discuss why.
