Review

Rating: 1 out of 5.

" You may not give a damn about the Geneva Convention, but some day you will be held accountable," Chuck Norris warns the commander of the camp in which he is being held. If only we could hold Norris accountable for this movie, which is even more blockheaded than the first. This prequel whose torture at the hands of brutal guards will have you begging for mercy long before he does. A second sequel, Braddock: Missing in Action III followed in 1988.
