The plot centers around Tim, now living on a quiet farm in North Dakota, after rescuing prisoners of war held captive in Vietnam in the previous film. He has given up killing, but one day the US Government pays him a visit to again recruit his help, revealing his family has been kidnapped by Communists. He returns to battle, venturing into Cambodia with his ex-teammate Ho Chi, killing over 25,000 people with his survival knife alone, in order to rescue his family. Ho Chi is killed during the fighting, and this motivates Tim to shoot and kill even more people with his bazooka.
A large amount of products were released with the movie, including Tim's survival knife, which stored such things as a rope and a toothpick inside.
- This film seems to be a spoof of Sylvester Stallone films Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III due to similar plotlines, though the concept of the main character's family being held hostage is nearly identical to the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Commando and the Bruce Willis film Die Hard.
- This film may contain the highest body count of the 3 films, with an estimated 25,000+ on-screen kills. This is likely a reference to the Sylvester Stallone film Rambo III, which featured an excess amount of on-screen kill,though the trailer for Special Needs Cop implies there were actually millions of on-screen deaths in this film.
- While a guest on Pressing Issues, Jeremy Robard references the film by quoting Tim's line I'm a man of peace. I'm done killing.
