Behind Enemy Lines (17-Nov-2001)

Director: John Moore

Writers: Zak Penn; James Thomas; John Thomas; David Veloz

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Rescue Mission, Sniper

An American military officer goes against standard operating procedures to rescue a fallen comrade trapped in hostile territory.

American Navy lieutenant Chris Burnett is a man working a reluctant job, flying the lone Christmas Day mission over war-torn Bosnia when he'd much rather be participating in operations more engaging than mindless patrol. Burnett's routine mission takes a turn for the terrifying when he is shot down capturing photographic evidence of genocide in the Balkans, however, forcing commanding officer Reigert to go against the orders of his own superiors and head out to rescue his man as hostile Bosnian authorities appear poised to close in.
