The despicable Ramon Cota has murdered an innocent father and child and is exporting illegal drugs into the USA. When Colonel Scott McCoy from the original film, and his sworn partner attempt to bring him to court, their efforts are all in vain, as he is let off virtually Scott free. Unable to contain his rage, Scott's buddy furiously lashes out at him in court, to Cota's anger. He exacts the same ritual on his wife and child as he did on the previous Father and kid. Out on a personal mission of vengeance, the buddy finds himself mercilessly killed at Cota's hands. When an arsenal of soldiers attempt to go in and bring Cota and his army down, they are taken hostage, surely to be executed soon. McCoy leads a brigade of skydiving commandos in, along with himself, to rescue the hostages and exact violent revenge upon Cota. Written by
Routine action movie that has next-to-nothing in common with the great Delta Force. It does, however, have a tour-de-force performance by Billy Drago as a ruthless Colombian (!) drug lord. Chuck Norris reprises the role of Scott McCoy from the first film, who is tasked with bringing down Drago and saving America from drugs. Pretty standard action movie plot. There are also some unintended laughs. For example, there's the scene where Chuck's buddy has just discovered his wife and brother dead. He falls to his knees and screams in the most melodramatic way possible, making sure all those acting classes counted for something. I couldn't help but be reminded of McBain from The Simpsons screaming "Mendoza!!!!" over the dead body of his friend. This is pretty cheesy stuff but die-hard Chuck fans will be more forgiving than most.
