!Behind Enemy Lines!

The most striking feature of this movie is that no time has been wasted in the cliched romance scenes between the protagonist and his lady love... To be precise its hard to notice any female casting in the film (please be clear that Im not a chauvinist but I appreciate the avoidance of unnecessary casting which retards the screenplay!)...

Owen Wilson, playing the lead guy is introduced as a frustrated young Navigator(one who helps the pilot during flight) who wants to quit the navy! A series of interesting events unfold and eventually our hero is more than willing to honor his commitment to the motherland! Though the entire movie is interesting, I was particularly astounded by two scenes .... the first is our hero's escape from the rebels by hiding under dead bodies after falling into a mass grave and the second one is the shot at a deserted factory were mines blow off sequentially after one of Burnette's pursuers steps on the wire!

The creators have tried best to make people aware of the situation prevailing in bosnia... and have also used the movie as a tool to exhibit American might (as all American war movies do)... Though certain parts of the climax are far too unbelievable, the stunning scenes during the course of the movie make up for the minor lapses at the end!

Gene Hackman makes his presence strongly felt with a smooth performance. The locations too are really good!

This flick is surely worth investing your time!
