Very sympathetic heroes ............
10 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A nice assortment of characters, are terrorized by a gang called the "Vampires", while desperately trying to escape from a "project" high rise. The strength of this film is having very sympathetic heroes, Gary Frank, and Ray Parker Jr., interacting with likable tenants, including Jan Michael Vincent playing a whacked Vietnam Vet. The "Vampire"gang are all generic, unmemorable, minority thugs, with the notable exception of "The Count". The movie is both claustrophobic, and a real stretch of realism, but is nevertheless entertaining. Considering the limited budget, "Enemy Territory" is a surprisingly good film..... - MERK
