Product Description

The fate of the world hangs in the balance in this explosive action thriller. Brace yourself for nonstop action and chilling suspense, because there's no turning back in this pulse-pounding sequel that takes you Behind Enemy Lines for another adrenaline-fueled adventure! When a team of U.S. Navy SEALs is assigned to destroy a North Korean missile site and avert a possible nuclear strike, failure is not an option. But the mission is abruptly aborted, stranding four soldiers in enemy territory. Now, in order to survive, they must defeat the rebel forces that threaten their lives, their allies and the entire free world

Premise and title are the only elements this low-budget military drama shares with the 2001 Gene Hackman-Owen Wilson theatrical feature, but those seeking a dose of action won't be disappointed, despite the lack of on-screen star power. Nicholas Gonzalez (Resurrection Boulevard) and Matt Bushell star as Navy SEALs stranded in North Korea after a mission to destroy a nuclear plant is aborted; a brace of dependable character actors (including Keith David, Bruce McGill, and Glenn Morshower) debates with President Peter Coyote on the best plan of action to bring the troops home safely. Writer/producer/director James Dodson's approach may strike some as less than subtle, but he keeps the film's pace brisk and the action heavy, and yields some commendable results on what is clearly a limited budget. The DVD includes an audio commentary track by Dodson, as well as a pair of making-of featurettes and the original trailer. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Reviewers Exaggerate October 25, 2006
I've seen both movies and do not agree that the movie is "shaking". The movie's style is done in a ture to life style that reflects the energy of the time and place. The special effects are better than the first movie. One in particular is when a speeding bullet flying toward the screen. I have seen many directors try this effect before and Director, James Dodson gets it right.This is the first time I have ever felt that a bullet fired was really going to get ME. I kid you not - right between the eyes! No 3-D effect ever matched this shot in it's intensity.Simply unbeleiveable!

For all of you out there please consider that this movie had a 3 million budget not 10 million like the first. "A list" actors were used in the first, as opposed to lessor well known in the second. BEL2 had only a three million budget AND had a better effect and a better story line!

Don't be fooled by some reviewers here that exaggerate and can't see past the first movie-

5.0 out of 5 stars Leave the Dramamine at the door! October 25, 2006
I agree with reviewer M.G.Phillips, some of the camera action is in a style that depicts action/movement but it is certainly no Blair Witch Project.

Director James Dodson with a limited budget has done wonders with this movie. His cooperation with the writers and actors is laid out extremely well and the total overall effort, I believe is on par with the first movie .

Not every director with a 3 million dollar budget, has been able to give so much integrity and impact without sacrificing artistic merit. This movie is timely because of world politics and it is easily believable - the way Director James Dodson envisions. It is amazing to me when the first review of a movie gets a negative review and some reviewers jump on the band wagon and follow suit .

3.0 out of 5 stars A film to watch while eating January 9, 2007
Behind Enemy lines II: Axis of Evil is not a bad film, it's just not a great film. It's entertaining to watch while eating or relaxing. I enjoyed it, but it's not the kind of film you have to think about what, why, or when while watching. After viewing, I went about my normal routine, not thinking about the film, but not upset that I watched it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good premise. Bad director. April 2, 2009
US satellites discover what seems to be nuclear missiles in North Korea. A team of Navy Seals are sent in to sabotage the missile base, but the mission is aborted at the last minute, but not before a group of Seals have already parachuted out of the plane and are trapped behind enemy lines in North Korea. Meanwhile, the president tries to find the right course of action to avoid the Korean War to be resumed.

Behind Enemy Lines 2 has an interesting premise and some good political intrigue. Its weakness is the bad action scenes. They are filmed with a shaky camera, apparently to give the scenes a more "realistic" feeling, but succeeding only in making them hard to follow, and often annoying to watch. Shaking the camera that much doesn't make the action scenes more exciting or suspenseful, just less watchable. And this visual style (shaky camera, spastic editing, occasional weird optic "effects") is used not only in action scenes but other scenes as well, especially in the first half of the movie. Halfway through the movie I was annoyed by the movie and thought it would only get a two star rating, but the story became more interesting in the last half, although the bad camerawork continued.

Weak three star rating, would have been much stronger in the hands of a competent director, cameraman and editor.

Though it is a low-budget, in-name-only sequel to the Gene Hackman / Owen Wilson film made in 2001, "Behind Enemy Lines 2: Axis of Evil" has one new and bold idea that is certainly interesting. The newer film tries to employ the standard action flick formula against the recent political and historical background around and since the 1994 framework accord between North Korea and the United States. The film has even a neat twist in the story, which refers to the real-life event in 2004, a mushroom cloud that was allegedly witnessed in North Korea.

The story begins promisingly. It is about the mission of the Navy SEAL team to destroy a missile site found in North Korea. When they start to drop out of an airplane flying over the target area, however, the order to abort the mission arrives. The order came too late and four soldiers are left `behind enemy's line.' It is contrived, and considering the geography of Korea, jumping from the sky is too risky and highly implausible (going from the sea is much easier), but well, it is still OK.

Unfortunately the film goes downhill from there. The actions themselves are not bad, but they are poorly edited. Many reviewers (including me) are complaining about the shaky camera, but more problematic is the lack of suspense that was felt in the original "Behind Enemy Lines' or "BAT 21." Instead of giving the thrilling scenes of how US military headquarter communicate the isolated SEALS through the radio and other media, it shows us painful tortures, one old `taxi' and a bizarre car accident on the country road. Frankly I still don't see the point of the last two episodes.

The film also shows us the game of international politics in White House with Peter Coyote's US President and Bruce McGill's stereotyped general.
