Dumb, daft and a lot of fun,
This review is from: Delta Force 2 [DVD] (DVD)
This is serious 80's action throwback stuff, and thoroughly enjoyable for it. Switch off your brain as Chuck and his fellow ultra-secret Delta Force commandos are sent on an errand worthy of a junior CIA coffee boy to reassure a twitchy DEA contact after a brutal DEA massacre at the hands of a costumed drug lord. Then switch on your adrenal glands as all manner of skydiving, rock-climbing, martial arts and fast driving mayhem carries you through the rest of the movie. Norris is suitably deadpan and muscular. Billy Drago is fantastic as a slimeball drug-lord who drips so much evil menace it's surprising his henchmen don't have to follow him around with a towel. And as 'General Taylor', John P Ryan has so much 'gee whizz let's blow up another bad guy!' fun that it's amazing his character passed the Army drugs test.
It's colourful, very enjoyable, fast action fun in a variety of interesting locations and a lot of lush jungle, and it's well worth spending time with.
