The Delta Force Blu-ray Short Review

5 stars of blistering eighties Chuck Norris action.Delta Force cover
The Delta Force is written by James Bruner (An Eye For An Eye, Missing In Action) and co-written and directed by Menahem Golan (Over The Top, Bloodsport), both major players in the field of eighties action films.
Originally released in 1986, this classic Chuck Norris film has been carefully transferred onto Blu-ray using the original film elements by MGM.
Delta Force HijackThe Delta Force is set against a backdrop of US struggles against terrorism in all it's forms, something very much in the forefront of American consciousness at the time. It was made a year after the hijacking of the Achille Lauro near to Egypt and also the hijacking of TWA Flight 847, the main basis for the story of this film.
In the film, the plane in question is the ATW Flight 282, which is hijacked en route from Athens to New York City, by Lebanese terrorists demanding that the plane be diverted and taken to Beirut.
Delta Dorce Chuck Norris and Lee MarvinEnlisted to rectify the situation and rescue the hostages are Major Scott McCoy (Chuck Norris - Walker; Texas Ranger, The Hitman) and, in his last screen role, Colonel Nick Alexander (Lee Marvin - The Dirty Dozen, The Big Red One).
