This is an Actioner movie with great loads of crossfire , helicopter scenes and explosion

Follow-up to ¨Deltaforce I¨ which based on the real-life hijacking of TWA Flight 847 on 14 June 1985 with Norris shinning ,resulting to be one of the best roles he'd made to date and here again Delta Force commanded by Chuck is called into service to eliminate all elusive drug lords and smugglers on the Colombian jungle . Delta leader/Norris leads the brigade into Latin America to snuff out a nasty drug baron and being starred by Chuck Norris , Richard Jaeckel, John P Ryan , Begonya Plaza , Mark Margolis , Billy Drago and directed by his brother Aaron Norris . As DEA and authorities don't negotiate with dope ringleaders , they blow them away! , as an America's special squadron led by Col. Scott McCoy along with his underlings take on mean villains .

Standard action-packed picture , plenty of blow-up , derring-do and fast moving . The film has frenetic action , shoot'em up and spectacular set pieces and for that reason is fun . This is a straight-forward Action|Adventure|Drama|Thriller|War movie . It is tense and exciting , at time bemusing and in average budget . Uneven picture , however being entertaining , amusing and never tiring . Exciting rescue climax but realized in cartoon style , to say the least , with spectacular but silly action scenes . There five crew members were killed in a helicopter accident during filming , the film is dedicated in their memory . The film was originally to be produced with the cooperation of Delta Force's real-life founder and original commanding officer, Col. Charles Beckwith . This is a routine actioner with Karate star Chuck Norris as the veteran Delta, as he's fine as tough, cold, stubborn Colonel . It's a predictable, shallow and brainless film though will appeal to Chuck Norris enthusiasts because of it contains some acceptable action sequences . Michael Dudikoff and Steve James were attached to the project when it was known as Spitfire: Delta Force II . After they passed on it, Chuck Norris was given the script which he disliked and was changed into the final product . Nice acting by Billy Drago , he steals the show as a sadomasochist villainous . He is is a reference to Pablo Escobar, a similar flamboyant real-life Columbian drug dealer who also had such an entrance to his compound . Atmospheric and functional cinematography by Joao Fernándes filmed in Tennessee and Philippines . Cota's mansion seen in the movie is the real-life Palac located in Tagaytay City outside Manila, it was erected by former First Lady Imelda Marcos . Commercial and catching musical score composed by means of synthesizer by Frederic Talgorn including lively leitmotif . The motion picture was regular but professionally directed by Aaron Norris , though Michael Winner was going to direct, but Chuck Norris didn't like the script. Aaron has usually produced , playing stunts and directed various vehicles for his brother Chuck , such as ¨Missing in action 3¨ , ¨Hitman¨ , ¨Hellbound¨, some episodes of ¨Walker Texas Ranger¨and three children films such as ¨Sidekicks¨ , ¨Top dog¨ and this ¨Forest warrior¨. The only film done by Aaron Norris to not have Chuck Norris in it was ¨Platoon leader¨.

This a a sequel to ¨Delta Force I¨ that dealt with a a hijacking TWA plane and starred by an all-star-cast as Chuck Norris , Lee Marvin , George Kennedy , being professionally produced and directed by Menahen Golan from Cannon Productions along with Yoran Globus . It is followed by several sequels in comic-book similar style ; as it posteriorly continues with this ¨Delta Force II operation stranglehold or Colombian connection ¨ , ¨Delta Force III the killing game¨ with the sons Hollywood's bigger stars : Eric Douglas , Nick Cassavetes , Mike Norris and directed by Sam Firstemberg ; ¨Delta Force : operation Ebola ¨ (1997) by Sam Firstemberg with Joe Lara , Jeff Fahey , Ernie Hudson , Frank Zagarino, Rob Stewart , Natasha Sutherland and many others . Furthermore , ¨Delta Force one : The lost patrol¨ by Joseph Zito with Gary Daniels , Mike Norris and Bentley Mitchum , ¨Operation Delta Force 2 Mayday¨ with Michael McGrady and directed by Yossi Wein , ¨Operation Delta Force 3: Clear Target¨ by Mark Roper with Jim Fitzpatrick , Bryan Genesse and Greg Collins ; plus ¨Operation Delta Force 4 : Deep Fault¨ with Gary Hudson , Johnny Messner , Greg Collins and Joe Lara , among others .

Chuck Norris doesn't fight. He conducts motivational seminars.

Delta Force colonel Scott McCoy (Chuck Norris) and his super secret military unit The Delta Force are called back into action due to the activities of a ruthless cocaine kingpin named Ramon Cota (Billy Drago). Cota is well protected, and seemingly untouchable, making him a very arrogant adversary. His empire has just kidnapped a couple of Federal agents, including Scotts' associate Bobby Chavez (Paul Perri). Also along for the ride are a gung-ho general (John P. Ryan) and a young woman (Begonya Plaza) who wants revenge.

Chuck and his filmmaker brother Aaron serve up more of the same in this sequel. It's got plenty of gunfire and explosions and enough of a body count (but not very much gore) to satisfy undemanding action genre fans. Having the enemy be a drug kingpin certainly does make the story topical. A lot of the characters are disposable types, but the actors all fit nicely into their roles. It does help to have old pros like Ryan ("Runaway Train") and Richard Jaeckel ("Grizzly") among the supporting cast. Ryan makes the most of the situation. Cast in one of his rare good-guy roles, he delivers a jovial performance and chews on the scenery a bit. Drago (Frank Nitti in the "Untouchables" feature film) once again offers a master class in supremely oily villainy. This creep is just pure evil, and can't die soon enough. People will also notice character actor Mark Margolis ('Breaking Bad', 'Better Call Saul') as a crooked general in league with Cota.

What could have been a more interesting set piece, when Scott is required to scale a mountain in order to reach Cotas' lair, isn't as satisfying as it could have been, but at least it offers something fresh in an otherwise formula plot.

Adequate pacing and a truly excellent, rousing score by Frederic Talgorn help to make this an agreeable diversion for action fans.

Six out of 10.

A must have for all Chuck Norris fans!

Where to begin commenting on Delta Force 2? For a start, it has an unashamedly awful and truly despicable villain who oozes pure evil from every stinking orifice. When eccentric bad guys are not hammy, they are Ramon Cota (a sickening performance by Billy Drago). Cota is a Colombian drug lord, who ships massive amounts of cocaine into America. He kills DEA agents with unnatural glee, murders pregnant women, rapes women, murders their husbands, murders sick babies and uses their bodies to smuggle cocaine, he has a chamber of death in his living room with large viewing window for his pleasure. Make no mistake kiddies, this guy is lower than minus infinity. I am surprised that he didn't go further and start killing the Queen, the Pope, Mother Theresa, and Jesus himself just to prove how evil he was.

The action ranges from Norris flying through the sky, swinging through the jungle, falling off cliffs and dodging rockets. Director Aaron Norris drags out every bloody detail, every death dance, and every penetration of every bullet with loads of slow motion. Cota has about 40 million armed guards (I am honestly not kidding) which provide plenty of fodder for the gunship and McCoy's smaller hand- held weapons. Keeping a tally on the body count would be virtually impossible. Another common criticism is the lack of personality for the Delta Force team themselves. I feel that this is a bit unfair. McCoy's immediate subordinate, Major Anderson, disappears near the end of the film as Geof Brewer died in a helicopter crash during production, which killed 4 others and seriously injured co-actors John P. Ryan and Mateo Gomez. It's a shame as he was rather likable. If you want brainless 80's action-fest (in spirit, not quite date of production) jungle mayhem, then look no further because I would certainly put this in Norris' top ten.

Overall rating: 6 out of 10.
