“Behind Enemy Lines” quotes(2001)
Plot – Young Lieutenant Chris Burnett confides his colleagues he wants to leave the army. He thinks their mission in Bosnia on the American aircraft Vinson is too much routine. Furthermore they spend too much time doing nothing, but his commander Admiral Reigart makes him clear he can't leave for the moment and sends Chris on a photographic reconnaissance mission on a F18. Burnett shoots some pictures in forbidden areas, then he's suddenly attacked and his plane falls. Burnett and his co-pilot Steakhouse throw themselves by parachute. While Steakhouse is killed by Sasha, a designated killer, Burnett runs away and reaches the meeting point with his allies, who however cannot save him. To reach a safe US area, Burnett begins a getaway through desolated territories and ghost towns.
