Delta Force 2: The Colombian Connection Reviews
December 14, 2013
Or known as The Colombian Connection but that's way too cheesy for me, but cheese is the name of the game here folks. Yep 'McCoy' is back and ready to take down some major drug kingpin scum. Funny thing is yet again despite the film title there isn't actually much Delta Force action. Again it all happens right at the end for the big finale, there's even less Delta Force action than in the first film! maybe they should of left out the Delta Force 2 bit in the title.
Its pretty straight forward stuff, the ever evil Billy Drago is the worlds most dangerous richest drug kingpin ever and he's flooding the US of A with lots of Lemsip....errr cocaine. So the DEA draft in Chuck Norris of Delta Force to basically save the South American country of 'San Carlos' where Drago is based, save the USA from all the drugs coming in...just save the world in general gosh darn it!.
Its all very predictable stuff that we've seen before (baring in mind its an old film of course), the step by step motions of any action flick really. The bad guys pull off some deals, kill some people, the good guys manage to capture the main boss, he gets away, he takes revenge on family members and this ignites Norris blah blah blah. It could easily be 'Lethal Weapon', well any of the first three really.
Norris plays the same character he plays in all of his action films, the same damn bloke!. He doesn't swear, he doesn't speak that much, his one liners are a bit tame but we always manage to see him topless at some point. That said he does the job we expect him to and he does it reasonably well, but he's no Arnie, JCVD, Jaa or Gibson if you ask me. I think the problem is his films never really come across as adult action flicks, they lack that bloody punch to really get you excited, I guess his films feel like slightly adult episodes of the A-Team.
In all honesty this film is so cheesy and cliched it feels like an old Bond film, especially with all the henchmen at the end wearing the exact same outfits. Not military garb which would be fine, but casual looking clothes, as if they all shopped in the same store or Drago ordered a huge supply of his favourite design. Speaking of Drago he's the boss here as usual, we all know Drago isn't exactly the best actor around but its his face. That snarly, slimy, creepy vamp-like face along with his skill of being a really really sadistic evil bastard that you just wanna see get taken down. Here he plays the white suited, white fedora wearing drug dealer to a tee, right down to the greasy pony tail. We know that Norris could break his neck in a heartbeat but Drago doesn't play like that, he's a shifty, dirty, underhanded slimeball who hides behind his henchmen and various weapons, love it.
The films poster was always ice cool, Norris calmly cradling an Uzi, it looks smart, alas the film isn't as cool. Its very by the numbers, highly hokey and doesn't really look that special either. For the most part its rather bland with not too much happening, the finale is much better of course but nothing to write home about. As said at the start this is when we see some Delta Force unit action but its nothing amazing, lots of explosions. If it wasn't for the uber cool Drago this film would be a bit boring really...there I said it.

What a powerful, gritty performances, a lightning-fast pace and an outrageously exciting skydiving sequences in this Chuck Norris's sequel explosive action-adventure film. With a chilling performance from Billy Drago is a great choice to play the main villain and John P. Ryan really seems to be enjoying himself here, and gave a fun performance.
The direction is good. Aaron Norris does a good job with good camera work, great angles and some spectacular shots during the sky diving stunts!. There is a bit of blood and violence.

This is another great movie
When DEA agents are taken captive by a ruthless South American kingpin, the Delta Force is reunited to rescue them in this sequel to the 1986 film.

Chuck Norris kicks bad guys, punches bad guys, and looks menacingly into the camera. This was an awesome Walker, Texas Ranger prequel.

The first Delta Force was not great, but was at the least entertaining. This Delta Force, however, lacks any effort to do even that. It is tasteless, dull, and overbearingly uneventful. There is hardly any appreciative action. Heck, even the soundtrack was thrown out the window. Might as well do the same to this film...

Dreadful film. However, there are some redeeming qualities when watching with a group of friends with lower than low expectations. The description of the villain during the plane ride was absolutely hilarious! Also, the henchman with the flowing horseshoe mullet that was able to fabricate a knife out of nowhere, sort of like Macgyver, was funny as well. All in all, bad movie, only watch with friends.

Woha. This is bad, very bad. Nothing is good in this movie. This is a good example that sequels are not always good as the orginal. The music is the worst ever. It would have helped if they had the theme from the first film, which made it so fun. The half-a-star is just for Chuck.

DELTA FORCE 2 (1990)
August 13, 2007
[b]Simply Put Chuck Norris is a deadly force of nature.[/b]
The title of this movie should have been changed post-production, after seeing the absolute tour-de-force performance of one of the world's most accomplished B actors, Chuck Norris. If it's us, we're calling this one "Delta Force 2: Don't (explitive deleted) with Chuck!" Norris plays a man possesed and bloodthirsty, taking out every drug poisoner in sight. His nemesis: the one, the only Billy Drago who as we all know was only three short years away from his breakthrough performance as Denton Vachs in the B zenith "Death Ring." Drago was great in this one too. He doesn't try to do too much with the role and stays pretty much the same in Death Ring. It's not bad acting, he just knows what to do to put meat in the seats.
Meanwhile, lets get into what makes this movie worthy of a go from Sid The Elf. It is extreme B! There is limited dialouge(most of the movie is fight and training scenes which are wonderful, and the most explosions we've ever seen in a B action, which is what gave ith the nod for 5 stars). I mean, there is roughly a 20 minute sequence with nothing but a helicopter shooting missles at a village. Beautiful! And when Norris does deliver lines, they're pure gold. Who can forget the famous "lessons" sequence with the Spanish Gallagher? Another B hallmark was the fact that we counted the same mexican warrior was killed off 5 seperate times, count them 5!
We would like to announce this is Chucks first movie in our list of reviews due to his sons captivating role in our critically acclaimed "Death Ring." Does it get the Sid the Elf Seal of Approval? You bet your sweet a-- it does, Seal of Approval- Did her. If you do yourself one favor this year, prove that Christmas doesn't only come once a year and check out Delta Force 2 and Death Ring.

I have finally decided how I will update this journal from now on.
RottenTomatoes is all about film, right? OK then, I will only update when reviewing movies. Or situations surrounding movies. Like when I met Bruce Campbell. (Except I didn't have RT then...)
So what is going on?
Not much -- I bought four VHS' today at a used video store...
-Code of Silence (Chuck Norris)
-Demolition Man (Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Dennis Leary)
-Death Wish II (Charles Bronson) FUCK YEAH!
-Forth and One: Joe Gibbs (A documentary on Redskins coach Joe Gibbs)
Reviews to be coming, I guess!
Otherwise, I watched Delta Force 2 last night. Its plot is really similar to the James Bond movie, License to Kill. Chuck Norris kicks ass in this film, obviously. He kills Billy Drago (a surprising good creepy villian) and an ugly dude with a skullet. According to Norris' biography, a showing of this film delayed several senators (including Bob Dole) from getting to a senate vote. They wanted to stay and see the end.
That's it for now -- see ya!
