9. Behind Enemy Lines

Enemy Lines

How different Owen Wilson’s career could have been had he stuck to more movies like this…

Regardless, the story of an officer trapped behind enemy lines (hence the title) during the Bosnian War makes for intense viewing, and it’s not hard to relate to the sheer terror of being in that type of situation. Things take an even more interesting turn upon the discovery of a genocide taking place in secret which is discovered by the downed officer.

Despite the fact that this was at its heart an action movie, Behind Enemy Lines was based at least partially on fact – in 1995, a US Air Force Captain really was shot down over Bosnia and survived for almost a week before being rescued – and that may in part help change your perspective of this one.
