YMMV: Missing in Action
- Awesome Music: Jay Chattaway's soundtrack is pretty damn impressive, especially the main titles.
- Just Here for Chuck Norris: Chances are people watch this film just to see Chuck Norris kick NVA/PAVN ass.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Soon-Tek Oh and James Hong playing the Big Bads in the series; both actors would later appear in the Disney film Mulan.
- Narm: Braddock jumps off a tower holding a couple of grenades. Said tower explodes for no reason.
- Sequelitis: The series gets progressively worse with each installment.
- Serial Numbers Filed Off: The first two films are based on James Cameron's original script for Rambo: First Blood Part II but Cannon rushed their film into production and changed enough material to avoid a lawsuit from Rambo's producers.
- Signature Scene: Chuck Norris rising out of the water, everyone?
- So Okay, It's Average
