Action movie with intense peril and devastation.

From its prosaic title to its convenient timeliness, this valentine to U.S. military guys hamstrung by officious NATO bureaucrats could hardly seem less promising

That's just one of many reasons why I'm reluctant to call Behind the Lines entertainment. Propaganda, MTV-style, might be closer to the truth.

A satisfying enough piece of giddy-up entertainment that raises a few passing questions about the American 'cowboy mentality' before ultimately deciding it's a lot more fun to simply eat your action movie cake than try to have it too.

Behind Enemy Lines crosses into the ugly side of patriotism.

Plays more like a recruitment video for the US military than any serious examination of conflict.

This film was so uninspired and bad, it is difficult to find anything positive to say about it.

It's pure adventure hokum, despite some end captions which are put up as though the events portrayed really happened (they didn't).

Military thriller aims high and misses the barn door by a mile.
November 6, 2002
The filmmakers do their best to distract us, but eventually it becomes hard to ignore that Behind Enemy Lines is one long chase sequence.

There isn't a single surprise, but there is a lot of hokey (and mostly too loud) music, along with tired visuals (parachuting over a snow-clad angel statue is one) and stuff blowing up.

Works pretty well as long as you don't pay too much attention to what anyone says and just let the action sweep you along.
October 10, 2002
It is flawed, often-breathless entertainment anchored to the confusion, complexities and horrors of current armed and ethnic conflicts.
September 3, 2002
The whole endeavor is wound up in heroic pontificating that renders it boring and cornily pretentious.
