Wilson isn't the first name that comes to mind when I think "action
movie". After seeing Behind Enemy Lines his name still isn't the
first one to come to mind, but at least I won't flinch if it happens
is Lt. Chris Burnett, a Navy pilot on assignment in the Adriatic
Sea running routine patrols over Bosnia. In fact, the duties are
so routine that he's decided to leave the Navy when his current
tour of duty ends in a couple of weeks. Admiral Leslie Frank (Gene
Hackman) isn't thrilled to see Burnett leave even though he is a
bit of a goof off both off and on the ship, but we'd expect a commanding
officers to want to hold on to a highly trained man.
and his co-pilot Stackhouse (Gabriel Macht) are assigned to a photo
reconnaissance mission on Christmas day but their intelligence report
misses the mark a little and there's nothing to photograph at the
assigned location. However, just a little off the flight path bubba
notices activity in what is supposed to be a neutral zone and talks
Stackhouse into taking a look. Did I mention that was also supposed
to be a no-fly zone?
couple of SAMS later and Burnett is walking around Bosnia hoping
to get rescued. Things don't work out as planned due to some political
maneuvering and he has to stay on the run while being pursued by
Serbs intent on killing him before he can get home and report on
what he saw.
this sounds like standard movie fare that's because it is, but Gene
Hackman is always a pleasure to watch in a military movie and Owen
actually does a pretty fine job portraying a Navy lieutenant who
isn't quite sure why he's in the Navy. This isn't a great movie,
but it's a decent way to kill a couple of hours.
is a war movie... kinda.
