It is tense and exciting , at time bemusing and with quite budget. What he doesn't count on are the prisoners who have managed to obtain their release in all of the confusion and are equally intent on stopping them from getting their hands on a nuclear weapon. Now the Delta Force needs to act in two locations crowded of terrorists to release the hostages. Abdul and Mustafa separate the Jewish and Marine passengers and they are transported to Beirut, while twelve other terrorists embark on board. When the two terrorists Abdul Rafai and Mustafa hijack a Boeing 707 in Athens with 144 passengers and 8 crews, they use a grenade to force pilot Captain Roger Campbell to fly to Beirut, Lebanon, instead of to Rome and New York. The film was originally to be produced with the cooperation of Delta Force's real-life founder and original commanding officer, Col.
Aircraft jetliner on its way from Athens to Rome and then to New York City is hijacked by Lebanese bad guys. Furthermore , ¨Delta Force one : The lost patrol¨ by Joseph Zito with Gary Daniels , Mike Norris and Bentley Mitcum , ¨Operation Delta Force 2 Mayday¨ with Michael McGrady and directed by Yossi Wein , ¨Operation Delta Force 3: Clear Target¨ by Mark Roper with Jim Fitzpatrick , Bryan Genesse and Greg Collins ; plus ¨Operation Delta Force 4 : Deep Fault¨ with Gary Hudson , Johnny Messner , Greg Collins and Joe Lara , among others. Delta force is charged with saving the passengers of a hijacked airliner who are transported from Greece to Middle East. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this film had potential but suffered from a lack of imagination, bad acting, poorly written script and an extremely predictable plot. . Exciting rescue climax but realized in cartoon style , to say the least , with spectacular but silly action scenes.
As it so happens, however, this prison also contains drones and missiles used to hit terrorist targets elsewhere in the world. Meanwhile the Delta Force commanded by Colonel Nick Alexander and Major Scott McCoy are assigned to resolve the situation. Not only that, but a nuclear warhead is also kept there as well. That being said, I have rated it accordingly. But authorities don't negotiate with terrorists , they blow them away! Charles Beckwith ; the producers wanted to tell the story of Operation Eagle Claw, the failed attempt to rescue the American hostages from Iran in 1979, but they wanted to change the story so that Delta Force completed their mission successfully and Colonel Beckwith left the project in disgust.
Standard action-packed picture , plenty of blow-up , derring-do and fast moving. McCoy and the Delta Force team are prepared to attack the plane when Alexander learns that there are now fourteen terrorists on board and not only two, and he aborts the mission. Abdul kills a Marine and returns to Beirut with the male passengers on board. The film has frenetic action , shoot'em up and spectacular set pieces and for that reason is fun. Then they fly to Algiers, where the women and children are released. Uneven picture , however being entertaining , amusing and never tiring.
Extraordinary plethora of secondary actors such as Martin Balsam , Lainie Kazan , Joey Bishop , Shelley Winters , Robert Forster , Susan Strasberg , Bo Svenson , Robert Vaughan and Eric Norris ,Chuck Norris' real-life son, is seen as one of the U. . . . . . .
