Delta Force 2: The Columbian Connection - Chuck Norris karate kicks the drugs trade into oblivion,
This review is from: Delta Force 2 [DVD] (DVD)
The follow up to Delta Force is an equally impressive affair. OK, it suffers from the absence of Lee Marvin but more than makes up for it with a simple revenge and rescue style plot, a particularly villainous main villain and lots of well staged stunts and action sequences.
This time round Norris and his close comrade arrest a drugs baron, after he is released and takes terrible revenge on his friend Norris is finally forced into action as the all conquering hero as he single handedly invades a small South American country to rescue some of the Baron's hostages and take some personal revenge. The capture, release and revenge of the drugs baron seems to have been lifted directly from 1989's Licence to Kill. Going up against Billy Drago's gleefully nasty drug Baron (he is so much better here than his somewhat out of place appearance in Untouchables) Norris has a suitable comic book villain to contrast his almost superhuman heroics and good-guyness against.
The rest of the Delta Force also make an appearance, backing Norris up in the latter stages of his mission. This provides most of the humour in the film, with a funny yet well realised look at the politics of invading another country relatively secretly.
All in all another well done high octane thriller from Chuck Norris that doesn't require too much brain power and delivers on all the essential elements - action, nastier-than-though bad guys, more decent-than-though heroes, humour and a bit more action. A great night in with pizza, beer and friends film. 5 stars.
