Behind Enemy Lines

During a routine reconnaissance mission a U.S. naval aviator (Owen Wilson) is shot down over Bosnia and must evade Serb paramilitary forces until the screenwriters figure out how to sell the following ideas: a good soldier is obedient but not too obedient; good politics put the welfare of a group above that of an individual as long as the individual isn't an American soldier; the end justifies the means as long as everything turns out OK for the not-too-obedient American soldier and everyone else who enjoys Coca-Cola. By my calculations, Wilson's character should still be running around miraculously dodging land mines. John Moore directed a screenplay by David Veloz and Zak Penn; with Gene Hackman and Vladimir Mashkov. 93 min.
