User Reviews

When the most important characters are the guns, you have a problem!
27 October 2000 | by ~PL~See all my reviews

The Operation Delta Force series had no reason to justify its five (proudly) American products or either the shoot the five of them in only two years...so, in this case, I can say the job was made fast, but in a bad way...This one isn't an exception...the same recipe over and over again...the invincible squad of American soldiers killing thousands of terrorists from other nationalities such as the usual Russia...Is that a "Made in America political speech"? What could be a plot summary for this movie if it's not "American muscled heroes kicking the terrorists' butts"? I saw Operation Delta Force 3: Clear Target, and it was the SAME thing, the only advantage in the third one was that it lasted shorter...A huge advantage in this case! The acting...if you call it so...is plain bad...I've never seen the actors of ODF2 before, and I hope I won't see them again! The characters are single-minded...definitely...and it is at some point funny...you can't say anything about any character...I don't even remember the principal character's name...no informations given about any characters except maybe the size of his gun...so in this film, the most important characters are the guns...The special effects are not bad, but they're not reinventing cinema...Another funny point is that SO many people get shot in this film, and there is almost no blood...And THE point that made the film last so long was the stupid and pathetic slow-motion with the backing patriotic American music during all the action scenes (that means more than three quarters of the movie)...Plain bad...If you like guns, soldiers and EXTREME cliches that you could see in a Simpson's episode put in a serious way, or if you really dislike Russians, you'll like this one...But, if you're someone who has healthy movie tastes...avoid it...I give it 28%.
