Sweaty boys in uniform.

Behind Enemy Lines - Columbia is out on DVD and this was one of the movies I took to review that honestly I had no previous knowledge. I never saw the first Behind Enemy Lines though I heard mixed results as to if it was good or bad. Truthfully war movies bore me unless they carry a heavy plot which sadly I never actually expect them to, so its always a great surprise when they do.

The story of Behind Enemy Lines - Columbia follows a group of U.S. Navy Seals who are sent on a mission to gain some intel. Needless to say there is a skirmish and the leaders they are sent to observe are killed. Somehow the Seals get blamed and they are stuck in Columbia with no way out and no way to prove that they are innocent

So the story sounded pretty interested and the movie showed some possible interest with its WWE production. The first half of the movie is pretty dull.. a bunch of sweaty boys preparing for a battle.. doing boy things. Needless to say I fell asleep. I did end up picking the movie back up later and started where I left off hoping things would pick up and they did, there is lots of shooting and guy humor and I'm quite positive the boys will love it as will people who live and die by war movies but it lacked the necessary plot to keep me interested. Alas the guys around here did seem to enjoy it.

Behind Enemy Lines - Columbia is available right now on DVD and you can pick up a copy at Amazon.

I have three copies of Behind Enemy Lines - Columbia to give away to my readers. They will be perfect for all the men, husbands and boyfriends out there.

My favorite war movie is probably I Was a Male War Bride with Cary Grant. Do romantic comedies count? I also loved Braveheart, Glory, and Band of Brothers.

Ha. It's like I picked the girliest of all possible war movies to be my favorites.
