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

Chuck Norris returns after the death of actor Lee Marvin (rip) in 1987 to reprise his role as Scott McCoy head of Delta Force Team. In the 1986 original film he and his men were fighting cooky Islamic airplane hijackers, this time around the team is gone and it is up to one man army McCoy to take on the sadistic South American drug lord Ramon Cota, played by the pure evil on screen known as Billy Drago. Cannon Films produced, so the budget is moderate and the hard R violence and heavy handed conservative social commentary are a plenty. The ending is cheese-ball, but there are a lot of gung ho jungle fights, extended car chases, and hand to hand combat to keep this revenge/war on drugs crossover story pretty damn entertaining.
