What's with the low score?


What's with the low score? This is easily the best Missing in Action movie. Sure, it's campy fun, but it's still fun. It deserves a 5.0 at least. I especially liked the scene where Chuck fires the grenade into the guy's stomach. I only wish these films would get a proper anamorphic widescreen/dual layer treatment.

Maybe someday they'll make a fourth one.

7/10 from me. 3 for action, 3 for comedy, and 1 bonus point for having a land border between Vietnam and Thailand =)

It's got a low score because the critics won't even take it seriously. They don't see Chuck Norris as an actor (though he has proven he can hold his own). The also don't value these kind of low-budget action films. Sad, because no one ever acused them of being 'boring' or lacking in entertainment value. With a few exceptions, the 'Action' genre is cast aside by critics. Films like American Ninja series, Bloodsport, Death Wish series, and practically all of Chuck's films are made for the fans. They are the ones who make these films successful. Critics can stay the hell away!

@jayanxiety, very well said!

What the hell are you talking about? The low rating comes from the people registered with this site. While it's more than possible some actual critics have voted low, but the rating here stems from people registered with IMDb

reply

Yes, this is the best one of the series. This is better than most action movies nowadays, even those rated 8 or more.

Oh don't say this is the best, this is the only one of the three you can't get in the UK...!

I've got MIA 1 & 2, they're bad films, but they're good fun to watch. I've always liked oldschool action films like this. They were never bound by the 'Must be a PG-13! Must have a deep, meaningful plot!' mentality that ruins so many of these films made today. They just did what they did for the sake of the killings and the explosions. I'll see if I can get this imported.
