Prequel to the first Missing In Action, set in the early 1980s it shows the capture of Colonel Braddock during the Vietnam war in the 1970s, and his captivity with other American POWs in a brutal prison camp, and his plans to escape.
Max Donigan sets off on a treasure hunt with his friend Leo and newly-acquired partner Patricia, who provided the treasure map. Along the way they encounter a few bar fights, evil "coyotes", and other obstacles they are able to overcome with ease. When they find the temple with the treasure, they also find the Firewalker, who wants to retain the power of his ancestors and put an end to the trio's treasure hunt. In the end, Max and his two friends persevere and return home wealthy.Written by

The film was one of Cannon's strongest performing movies at the box office in 1986. However it was a relative disappointment compared to other Norris films, earning a little less than $12 million. Cannon Films went into financial receivership soon afterwards. See more »
While Patricia is swimming to shore, Max jumps in and starts swimming. The camera pans back to Patricia and you can still see Max's legs sitting on top of the sinking car. See more »

West German theatrical version was released uncut with a "Not under 12" rating. However, the VHS release was cut by 1,5 minutes. This version was used for all subsequent VHS and DVD releases. Only in 2014 the uncut version was released on DVD. See more »
In the '80s Golan Globus made many action oriented movies that were entertaining and easy to enjoy. This one is another one of their movies that features Chuck Norris.
These guys sure had the formula down. They were the Asylum of those days, borrowing ideas from other A list movies and making a spoof. The quality of this one is one of the best out of all the movies they've made. There's plot, there's story, and there're the actors.
If not high on seriousness, the movie is high on entertainment value.
World really looked different in the '80s. Things were much more light hearted. I'm not sure if the world we live in today is better than it was back then.
Nice effort on the part of the producers, and the actors did just fine. One of the better Chuck Norris film from the '80s.
