CHUCK NORRIS: MISSING IN ACTION (1984) – Reel Action!
It’s hard to believe, but here on REEL ACTION, this is our first foray into the wild and wonderful world of The Cannon Group. Founded by Israeli cousins Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, Cannon were the kings of eighties B-movie action flicks, and by far their biggest star was the one and only Chuck Norris. In the early eighties, James Cameron and Sylvester Stallone’s script for what would become RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART 2 was making the rounds, and Cannon did their version with two back-to-back MISSING IN ACTION movies starring Chuck Norris as James Braddock. Originally, MISSING IN ACTION 2: THE BEGINNING, which was released as a prequel in 1985, was due to come out first, but when the movies were turned in it was obvious the first film was far superior, so it hit theaters, and for a while was one of the biggest grossing independent movies of all time. Join us as we dig into the fun action flick, a personal favorite of series host Travis Hopson.

Thank God for subtitles. The narration on this is about as coherent as someone mumbling in their sleep.

The Big succès of star of all career Missing in action of Joseph Zito before Code of silence and Lone wolf mcquade.

Less good Who john Rambo. Under Rambo saga but efficense
Your better caractère with Cannon group picture
L'intégralité du film svp
Just watched it. Holds up well, liked it. Can't go wrong with the good Canon films.
Chuck Norris took over when Bruce Lee passed on. Chuck is real he was in the air force and studied karate and competed. Won to! Then started making great movies. Then came the rest after him. He is top dog and will always be I still watch Walker Texas Ranger.
Im confused on missing in action he gets captured in 1 on the opening scene get captured has long hair and beard but in 2 he gets captured in a totally differed scenario and has short hair and no beard
I watched this movie last night and man i enjoyed it 🙂😁! I love 80s and 90s movies so much and Chuck Norris is so badass 🙂👊🏻🤜.
They say the T-1000 is made out of Chuck Norris's seaman.
chuck norris can watch 60 minutes in 20 minutes
Part 2 is a really superior sequel
"There was resentment toward the returning soldiers" hasn't this stuff debunked, or at least classified as "It wasn't the hippies spitting on soldiers"? Ugh. That said, this movie was cool for what it was, at it's time. Rewatched recently, it is REALLY rough on stunt coordination, and I never remembered the plot being that anorexic, but damn. Norris films never had satisfying endings.
True story chuck Norris once slammed a revolving door shut
CHUCK NORRIS LIVES IN MY TV. WHAT YA GOING TO DO?
I don't like Chuck Norris🤷🏿♀️
Chuck Norris once visited the Virgin islands. They are now called The islands.
Another reason they released MIA before MIA2 was that they knew Rambo II was on the way and they wanted to get MIA into the theaters first, so it wouldn't be considered a cheap Rambo copy. Both movies were based on the same script, as pointed out in the video.
MIA Riddle: How was Braddock at the fall of Saigon (MIA 3) when he was supposed to be a prisoner (MIA 2) at the same time?
Pleas do a Video-Series of all Cannon Films 🙂
I remember liking the first part most, now I have to find out it's actually part two 😉
Please review invasion usa as well
I would be all about a whole Cannon Group series!
How many Stallone's would you give part 2 and 3?
I heard Chuck Norris died last week…. He's alright now! 🤣 🤣
Do ‘Uncommon Valor’ please.
I never liked Chuck Norris movies. He's a terrible actor and his movies are cheap looking.
I grew an extra bollock after watching Missing in Action. Worried me for a while.
Bro y’all have to do darkness falls
Missing in action, this movie should be called coming in for debriefing..
In England back in the early/mid '80s VHS tape rentals were the big thing with kids. My childhood was a string of crazy action movies like MIA, and a lot of horror. I probably saw everything. Missing in Action is definitely a classic of the time, and Chuck Norris just seemed like so much more of a hard ass than Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Van Damme. Plus, he seemed very American. Stallone never seemed that American to kid me, and the other big two clearly were not. If you asked a kid in my school to name an American, I bet Chuck Norris would be the most common name. The media, of course, hated all the violent action films corrupting the kids and leading to violence (video games had not won that title yet). Best advertising Mr Norris ever got.
Chuck Norris died 12 years ago, the grim reaper is just too afraid to tell him
They say Chuck Norris's tears cure cancer. Not sure how they would know that being that he's never cried
Delta Force next 😃
A lot of great movies came out in the year 1984 and this isn't one of them.
8:32 at the risk of getting shot by a merman with a machine gun, "Who's" means "who is" as in "Who's laughing now", "Whose" is more like "My Laughing is now".
Chuck Norris ' spidey sense roundhouses incoming danger without him taking action
Legendary James han. Thanks 😊
Do an Entire series on Cannon !!!
Chuck Norris doesn’t have a chin under his beard, there is only another fist.
The eighties was the Golden Age of action films we were spoilt.
2:12 …. David Lo Pan !
… that handshake is all in the reflexes. 👌🏻
Chuck Norris has been missing in action his entire career.
Why isn’t there Chuck Norris toilet paper? Because he doesn’t take $#!t off of anyone
How many ethnicities of Asian has James Hong played? 🤔
