Delta Force 2: The Colombian Connection is the 1990 sequel to The Delta Force.This time around the Delta Force, which still counts McCoy (Chuck Norris) in its ranks, is deployed to a Banana Republic in South America to take down Ramon Cota, the world's most powerful drug lord.
This film has the examples of:
- Big Bad: Cota.
- California Doubling: Set in South America, the film was shot in the Philippines.
- Colonel Badass: Scott is now a Colonel himself, with predictable badassery.
- Disney Villain Death: Cota plummets to his doom when the rope that he was hanging on snaps. It saved Scott the problem of cutting them himself.
- The Dragon: Carlos.
- Exact Words: The Delta Force are not meant to perform any armed incursions into Cota's territory, so every action they take (or so they tell the observer as it happens) is justified by Taylor with terms like "taking a stroll" (for disembarking soldiers from a helicopter). By the time stuff starts to blow up Taylor stops caring, though.
- Gunship Rescue: Just as Scott is about to die in the gas chamber, General Taylor's armed chopper arrives on Cota's place and starts demolishing it, which helps him escape his predicament.
- It's Always Mardi Gras in New Orleans: The film opens in Rio de Janeiro, which is celebrating carnival.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: The Dragon is spin-kicked by Scott right into a statue's spear.
- Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Most of the movie. The mooks are even worse shots than in the first film.
- Machete Mayhem: Cota's weapon during the last fight.
- Never Bring a Knife to a Fist Fight: Happens during the fight between Scott and Cota's right-hand man.
- Revenge Before Reason: Bobby (for trying to go One-Man Army on a heavily guarded Cota) and Quiquina (for trying to stab a no-longer-subdued Cota). But to be fair, they've both crossed the Despair Event Horizon, thus losing their reason.
- Sissy Villain: Cota usully acts in some kind of effeminate way.
- Spies in a Van: A van full of DEA agents is shot up by Cota's men in the opening.
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: The very last scene of the movie, as a Karmic Death. Cota is smugly telling Scott about how his drug money will get him out of prison and how he promises to increase productionů and then the rope snaps. Scott's Bond One-Liner: "Let's see your money get your out of that".
