BEHIND ENEMY LINES (Theatrical Release USA 2001)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Behind Enemy Lines—thrilling action flick—shows Owen Wilson working outside his usual comedy routines and working the serious role to its maximum. It works! He’s a great serious actor. Who would have thought of offsetting his role with the support of Gene Hackman? That choice made it all the better for producing a “knock them out of their seats” war film. The story is concisely written. Excellent portrayal, fresh scenes in every byte, and ‘light-bulb-quality’ ideas. This film must not be missed and becomes the quintessential war flick for war movie fans.
