Behind Enemy Lines August 16, 2006

Posted by Sai in English, Movies, Reviews.

This is a completely formulaic thriller. Though I do enjoy movies in this genre, this one doesn’t make the cut. After watching many similar flicks, it seems that this one doesn’t have enough of the ingredients that makes these flicks likeable to the general audience. Owen Wilson in an action movie is not something that I wanted to see unless he was providing the comic relief. Owen doesn’t do that in this movie. Gene Hackman does not get a chance to shine. The basic storyline seems interesting (not novel though) for this genre but the movie does not hold your interest as the plot unfolds. In fact the plot is too thin and tests your patience. To give credit to the director, there are a few well shot action sequences but that is not enough to watch this movie. Owen runs and runs while the screenplay drags. I did not like this movie and anybody who has seen a few movies in this genre should give this one a miss.
