This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. From compleate inacuracy in geography, history, politics, to really bad choice of music, plot and scenery. Characters are presented in over heroic or over villant way and the whole thing is highly disrespectful to Balkan civil war and people that died there. Don't waste your time on this crap.

It is a flat exhausting line from top to the bottom with nothing promising enough to hold on except Owen Wilson.

lame war movie. gene hackman is great at pretending to be a general but the rest of the film is so lame. like the part where 100 guys with machine guns are shooting at owen, not one of them can hit him

i once considered this a great movie. it's still pretty awesome but is also dated at times and has some questionable parts. a few cheesy moments too. but lots of cool scenes. and fairly suspenseful throughout (about 3 viewings)

Great action sequences, including missile dash. Owen Wilson in a war action drama- I guess I've heard of crazier things. Surprisingly enjoyable if you're able to get past a few weird stylistic action moments and some unrealistic scenarios. Rating: 7.25 / 10

This movie getting 37% shows the ineptitude of film critics. It has withstood the test of time, and proven to be a memorable film for many.

Just because a star actor is in it doesn't make it a star movie. Enemy At The Gates was way way better!

Surprisingly intense and a believable performance by Owen Wilson as a soldier during wartime

A nifty, big budget action movie with suspense, and charisma from the somewhat out-of-place Owen Wilson.

Favorite Owen Wilson movie! A war movie unlike any other with Owen Wilson and Gene Hackman!

Good ideas that don't fully translate to the screen in this rousing tale. Perhaps a sign that the director had worked with video games previously. If you've seen the trailer - you've seen the movie.

Owen Wilson doesn't strike me as a war movie star but this was actually very entertaining. Gene Hackman was good as the admiral. The escape action never really slows down.
Super Reviewer

This is a pretty underrated film, in my opinion. It's pretty interesting to see Owen Wilson in a role other than the wise cracking jokester. He plays a Navy pilot that is shot down over enemy territory and is chased by a secret government agent and opposing troops. Gene Hackman provides a passionate performance as Wilson's commanding officer. Pretty enjoyable.

Decent to good performances along with mostly well-staged action sequences lift this to the realm of above average war film. As the title sugests an insorbordinate navigator is forced to endure a perilous chase through Serbia to a rescue point.
The usual death and destruction of standard war films follows: Brutal pursuers, friendly locals; Tanks, bombs and a minefield.
Gene Hackman is reliabley superb as the patriotic admiral, putting Americans first over politics.

A well made and enjoyable action film, but the gaps in the plot leave you wondering.

Ok movie but not great

An insult to anyone ever in combat or the service. Just as bad as "The Green Berets"!
