Fred Williamson starred in many low budget Italian made action flicks throughout the 80’s. This one is on the higher end of the totem pole. It’s sorta like a cross between Delta Force and Death Wish, although that’s probably giving it too much credit.
Brett Clark retires from Delta Force so he can spend more time with his pregnant wife. Predictably, she gets gunned down by Nicaraguan terrorists about five minutes into the flick. They also steal a nuclear weapon and fly back to
Delta Force Commando is a competent no-frills action flick that manages to hold your attention throughout most of it’s running time. The flick contains plenty of scenes where Williamson and Clark gun down tons of bad guys and say funny shit afterwards. (“Excuse me while I throw up!”) It also happens to be just mean-spirited enough to make you go, “Damn!” In addition to the gratuitous death of the pregnant wife, we also get a gnarly scene in which the villains put electrodes on Williamson’s gonads. (“They hot wired my nuts!”) We also get some rather hilarious 80’s fashions too. (The main terrorist wears an acid-washed blazer with the sleeves rolled up and all the women sport humongous shoulder pads.)
What kinda sinks the film is the interchangeability of all the action scenes.
Williamson and Svenson also starred in Inglorious Bastards together.
