Movie Review: Behind Enemy Lines (2001) Owen Wilson – Gene Hackman

Here is my take on the now old title Behind Enemy Lines starring Owen Wilson and Gene Hackman.

Plot: The movie revolves around Wilson’s character being a Navy Fighter Pilot. On a normal recon mission, he and his co-pilot spot something on the radar and go to check it out. The “something” they were checking out ends up shooting them down and putting Wilson’s character on the run for the majority of the movie. Through trials, tribulations, and a few officer skuffles back at the base, our hero(es) end up making this a Great movie to watch and I really enjoyed it.

Rating: I would give it a 4/5. I was kept on the edge of my seat most of the time and I never got bored. Any bathroom break would have definitely constituted a Pause on the movie for sure.

Review: I liked this movie a lot. I didn’t think I would like it near as much as I did because I knew it was an Action/Drama and it starred Comedy funny man, actor Owen Wilson. Not thinking he could pull this off, I walked into this movie not very open minded but from the first 15 minutes of the movie, you’re hooked from then on out. I now have a new-found respect for Owen Wilson as an actor.

Language/Content: The language wasn’t really that bad. There are a few parts of mild gore (guns, shooting, war, etc.) that I probably wouldn’t recommend for anyone under 10 but with parental discretion, i would say this is a very good family movie.
