Audience Reviews for In Enemy Hands

I watched this to see William H. Macy. Not the greatest of movies, but not terrible. The German actors were mostly top-notch. Some of the American ones were pretty sad, however...Lauren Holly, especially. The story itself was interesting....

I rented it cause I wanted to see something else Scott Caan was in (other than the Oceans movies & Gone in 60 seconds) and I got a surprise.. Ian Somerhalder is in it LOL. Made in 2004 but looks more 90s. There?s subtitles as they are war with Germany in this. Scott Caan is on the cover as one of the stars of the movie & well? I won?t ruin it. Didn?t think it was great but didn?t hate it either. C


Whew! Glad I saw this. More often than not I don't care for military-related films much, but this was great. Great story, really great acting. The battles within the individual characters turn out to be much more huge than the global war. I always love a good-guy vs bad-guy story that ends up with the two sides each being both good and bad.
