This may be my favorite Chuck Norris film of all-time but I need to watch Missing In Action again, because it’s been awhile.
This film is like two films in one. There is the first part which has to do with Lebanese terrorists hijacking a plane. I’m not really sure why because I don’t know if it was even explained but they spend the first half of the movie flying, landing, flying, taking Jewish hostages, flying some more.
The second half of the film deals with Chuck Norris’ team of bad ass Delta Force MFers trying to rescue some hostages from the terrorist compound. Chuck is joined by veteran Lee Marvin and American Ninja sidekick Steve James.
Asses get kicked, stuff gets exploded, everything gets shot and Norris rides a bad ass motorcycle that shoots missiles! What’s not to love?
The cinematography was average, the acting was below average, the plot wasn’t important but did you read the previous paragraph?
The Delta Force is a fun movie. Especially for those of us with nuts full of testosterone.
