The title was a good one because it was all about the Delta Force.
27 August 1999 | by (Massapequa, NY) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was excellent. I rented it and had it for 5 days and watched it 4 times. The cast was great and I am especially fond of Joe Lara. It's time to rent it again. If you like action, you'll really enjoy this movie
