Goofs

When the two trains are approaching, the leader of the terrorist group is shown emerging from the back door of a passenger car to view the stopped train in the middle of the bridge ahead of them. The only problem is, the train on the tracks ahead of them can only be seen from the locomotive at the front of the train. To make matters worse, the terrorist leader was going out the BACK DOOR of the car, so he was looking in the opposite direction. Not only could he not see the train straight ahead from anywhere but the locomotive, but he wasn't even facing the correct direction to see it. See more »

Standard action packed film with usual feats carried out by Delta Force
12 November 2005 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

The film deals with a South African terrorist group commanded by Nash (Joe Lara) who have robbed vials of a deadly virus called Ebola and threatening to release on the population . Delta Force is assigned by Security Chief (Hal Holbrook) for the mission to track down them . The leader (Jeff Fahey) and other members (Frank Zagarino , Rob Stewart , Natasha Sutherland) are flown into Mozambique to stop'em . They must battle to vanquish in this overly violent actioner .

The picture is exciting and tense at time lackluster thriller . This standard noisy action movie is less than memorable . However ; fights , gunplay , shootouts and explosions are well done in this routine actioner . The flick is plenty of macho man , frenetic action , chases , struggles and firepower . Delta Force original story is in ¨Delta Force I¨ based on hijacking TWA plane with Chuck Norris , Lee Marvin , George Kennedy , Robert Foster and directed by Menahem Golan . It posteriorly continues ¨Delta Force II operation stranglehold¨ with Chuck Norris , Richard Jaeckel, John P. Ryan , Billy Drago and directed by his brother Aaron Norris . Furthermore , ¨Delta Force III , the killing game¨ with the sons Hollywood's bigger stars : Eric Douglas , Nick Cassavetes , Mike Norris and directed by the same director this film , Sam Firstemberg . Rating : mediocre but entertaining .
