- Behind Enemy Lines review by CP Customer
No he doesnt single handedly take on the entire Bosnian army, he does survive an awful lot of firepower pointed in his direction though. Its a bit of an oldey now but I rented this simply because I haven't seen it. Its actually quite good. There's a bit of a Top Gun-esque kind of feel to the beginning but once Wilson is shot down its a pretty good adventure which does keep your interest. If the survival of the hails of bullets and the dramatic ending scenes don't bother you too much. All in all this film is ok.
