THE DELTA FORCE (Theatrical Release USA 1986)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Delta Force contains some scenes that do not seem very probable and works from a script that could use a re-write. However, the usual action movie’s flash and dash liberally sprinkle the film’s scenes which makes this film a great background flick to play while entertaining friends around a grill. Plenty of shooting and blowing up stuff swirl around Chuck Norris, Lee Marvin, George Kennedy, Bo Svenson, Robert Forester, Robert Vaughn, Shelley Winters, and Eric Norris. The movie has a very good supporting cast.

Storyline

After terrorists highjack Flight 282, the United States sends Delta Force to resolve the difficulty. Israeli Army Intelligence becomes effectively involved to rescue hostages taken during the highjack.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a solid action film and worth a watch to see some of Chuck Norris’ earlier work and Lee Marvin, George Kennedy’s later work.
