Runtime: 125 mins Release Date: 13 Feb 1986
In many of these reviews one of the criticisms of the movie is its negative depiction of Arab terrorists.Its worth remembering that this film was released in 1986. The torture and murder of the American sailor depicted in this film actually did happen when TWA727 was hi-jacked in June 1985. In October 1985 "heroic Arab freedom fighters" seized the cruise ship Achille Lauro and killed a passenger, 69 year old wheelchair bound Leon Klinghoffer, because he was Jewish. In December 1985, Arab terrorists indiscriminately opened fire on travellers at Rome and Vienna airports killing 20 <more>
people, including an 11 year old girl.No matter how bad this film may set out to make Arab terrorists look, they always make themselves look 10 times worse.
A classic 80's action film, with a mind blowing cast. Definitely Chuck Norris's best film, and maybe his best performance. I think the fact that he was working with such a big cast, his performance was rather inspired, the actors probably would've given him tips to make his acting better maybe. Lee Marvin's last film, but a film u will always remember him by. Good to see other famous old timers like martin balsam, Shelley winters, George Kennedy and Robert Vaughn. Robert Forster is suburb as the villain of the film. Steve James is also one of the greats, who sadly died, 7 <more>
years after the film. Its got a great background score, that although at times is repetitive, is never annoying and always raises spirits. In a way a think the film is a tribute to Lee Marvin, he is a class act at playing tough guys, and his final performance of his life, shows that. The final seen where they arrive back in Israel, is very emotional and when u see the friendship between Norris and Marvin as they take off, and then u have the classic music to go with it. An All time classic.
Norris and Marvin: how can you go wrong? (by jklein8787)
Chuck Norris and Lee Marvin together on the big screen: perfection! They star as part of a team that goes around taking out terrorists. Robert Forester his best performance plays an Arabic bad guy who with the help of some other Arabs hijacks a plane and go about killing and torturing the hostages. With an all-star cast, this movie is non stop action. I watched the film a few days after September 11th and couldn't believe how much accurate this film may have been. I just wish we had Chuck and Lee kicking foreign Arab butt. You should see this just for the great theme song, Chuck's <more>
motorcycle, and Lee Marvin shooting an Arab in the face. They don't make these movies like they used to. Now we get 20 something actors fighting computer generated monsters as they do kung fu and spout off one-liners. Delta Force rules! Oh, and sequel sucks but that's because it was made by Aaron Norris.
"The Delta Force" is an exciting action picture starring Chuck Norris in one of his best movie roles. The film is about an American airliner en route from Athens to Rome to New York that's hijacked by Middle Eastern terrorists which is loosely based on the real-life hijacking of a TWA jetliner in July 1985. This part of the film is terrifying. These hijackers mean business, and they provide a lot of cruelty to some of the passengers and crew members. When the U.S. government gets word of the hijack, they sent in The Delta Force, a tough team of U.S. commandos led by Lee Marvin <more>
and Chuck Norris. Do they get the job done? You'll just have to see for yourself. "The Delta Force" is an excellent film because it delivers plenty of action, plenty of suspense, and plenty of realism. The movie also has an all-star cast. Besides Norris and Marvin, "The Delta Force" also features Robert Forster a decade before winning an Oscar nomination for Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" in a very good performance as the lead terrorist; Bo Svenson as the pilot of the hijacked airliner; Hanna Schygulla as the head stewardess of the plane; Robert Vaughn as a U.S. General who gives orders from the U.S. President to the Delta Force; and Martin Balsam, Joey Bishop, Lainie Kazan, Shelley Winters, George Kennedy, Susan Strasberg, and Kim Delaney a decade before TV's "NYPD Blue" as terrified passengers on the hijacked plane. If your a fan of action movies, you're going to like "The Delta Force". ***1/2 out of four
Good B-movie action about 1980's Palestinian Terrorists versus the U.S. Delta Force.Delivers everything expected as long as it is clear that the production is not going to be as grand as STAR WARS. The acting and script/screeplay could have been better.But the action/suspense scenes were energetic and exciting.Had a very TV movie feeling to the production style.The only scene that was really done very poorly was the Volkswagen car chase/shooting scene.Only for Patriotic U.S. war action movie fans and big fans of the lead actors.....
A surprising espionage thriller, with dramatic moments... (by ary)
A group of Arab extremists kidnap an American airline's airplane and threaten to kill everybody as a way to prove their hate for the other nations and shock the world.At the same time in that the negotiations become tense and marked by hostilities, a special army force is activated to rescue the passengers and kill the dangerous fanatic terrorists. Action film that counts with the cast's excellent interpretations, formed by famous movies stars such as Martin Balsam, Joey Bishop, Hanna Schygulla and others, with prominance for Lee Marvin. Directed as an espionage thriller, "Delta <more>
Forces" alternates dangerous and risky scenes with moments in which the suspense reaches high levels, reminding the Hitchcock's thrillers. Filmed in several locations of Middle East and counting with an extraordinary photograph that exalts the whole hot and claustrophobic climate of the story, "Delta Force" offers an excellent entertainment, even seeming racist and simpleton in some occasions, and it is the best motion picture of Chuck Norris's career. The most touching sequences, among so many others, are the violent fight of the specialist in martial arts' hero Norris with the terrorists' leader interpreted by Robert Forster, from "Jackie Brown", in a good, but sometimes over acted, performance and the Norris' attempt to go up in the airplane that is about to take off, at the same time in which he is pursued by the Arab army!! "Delta Force" is rated for violence and it runs 126 minutes. The cast:Lee Marvin, Chuck Norris, Robert Forster, Joey Bishop.
If you've seen enough 9/11 footage. and you can't help finding yourself really getting p'd off from our governments baby steps tactics, then put on Delta force! Yes it can be a bit hateful to Muslims, but the important thing is that you see a whole lot of terrorists die, and only one delta force member die. IF that's not butt kicking then I don't know what is! The first hour on the airplane can be rough if you aren't used to seeing hate so thick against a specific ethnicity of people. The violence on the plane is unlike a Chuck Norris film, but you will be relieved to <more>
know that they break away from those scenes sporadically to show Chuck loosing patience as he sees the media coverage of the hijacked airplane on TV. Then only to see a retired Chuck come off of retirement, Leaving Lee Marvin his boss Say "What the hell. It's Chuck. He can do that." Then we proceed to see the biggest butt whipping in any land. Boy do we wish Chuck was in the armed forces!
Revenge of the 80's: Chuck Norris Mania! (by Captain_Couth)
The Delta Force 1986 was one of the few movies that Cannon actually spent money on. An epic film with an all-star cast of has beens and never weres. Chuck Norris and Lee Marvin who passes the torch to Chuck co-star as a pair of black o.p.s. commando team leaders who didn't get the job done back in Teheran 1980, vowed back then to never screw up again. This time they get the chance to redeem themselves when a jumbo jet is hi-jacked by a pair of very sweaty "arabs". Robert Forester plays the lead hi-jacker he looks like he must have sweated a can of Crisco . Old celebrities <more>
can be spotted through out the picture, check out Robert Vaughn's new "do". I guess that Swedish hair formula must have really worked! .Even though this was meant to be an epic film based on recent events, in reality it's nothing more than Chuck Norris trying to one up the competition by taking out those no good terrorists who are all hopped up on the Qu'ran. We also get to see Lee Marvin go out in true fashion, appearing in a low budget Cannon film playing second fiddle to Chuck Norris. Years of hard living had finally caught up to Mr. Marvin who bows out of the living world after this film was completed.This is actually a fun film to watch. Chuck doesn't ruin the film with his non-acting. The villains are so broadly drawn that the movie plays out like a farce. Watching the older actors trying to out act each other is a real hoot. Too bad Cannon Films didn't make more productions like this. If they did they might have become another New Line Cinema instead of another Hammer Films, Amicus or even to a lesser extent Shaw Brothers Ltd.Highly recommended.It's a shame M.G.M. cheaped out on the D.V.D. transfer. A classic epic like this one should have received the deluxe treatment. Restored with a nice letterbox presentation. The poster was awesome as well. They should have used it as the D.V.D. cover.
This is my favorite hijacking movie, with Chuck Norris and Lee Marvin performing heroics for the good old Red, White, and Blue. For one thing, it gives the viewer a good picture, from the point of view of the victims, on what it really must have been like for the September 11 airplane victims. The torture of the American sailor, based on a real-life event, is vivid and horrifying, and shows the worst picture of not being able to strike back. Chuck Norris does a good job, demonstrating his improving stage presence. The scenes of his dishing out revenge, particularly pure martial arts displays, <more>
provide visceral satisfaction that is among the best in all filmdom.
