A few weeks ago I received Delta Force. When I viewed the movie on DVD, I noted several area's where the "Arab" characters were speaking Arabic. At that point, there should have been Englich sub-titles. But, there were none. A couple of segments were rather long and it was impossible to determine what was going on, without a command of the language they were speaking. Has anyone else run into this problem? I checked with MGM and they said they do not plan a recall. I had understood, from The Digital Bits, that the glitch had been corrected. But, MGM will not acknowledge that there was a defect. So, I'm curious to see if anyone does in fact have a copy of The Delta Force with the English subtitles on when Arabic is being spoken.

I've got it on laserdisc and I remember subtitles during those scenes.

It looks like MGM has left out subtitles that are in the original films on a lot of their recent releases (including a couple of James Bond films). They really are messed up.
