    I thought this was going to be another hilarious disaster movie, but I was wrong. The Delta Force settles down into a well-made action film that tantalizes us with its parallels to real life. show more

    The movie is not Oscar caliber by any means. The acting is spare and without much passion.. Sure the movie is worth one or two stars at best. But it's a hell of a ride nonetheless. show more

    The script plays like ''The Dirty Dozen'' saving the passenger list of ''Airport `77.'' show more
