Great stuff for those who miss the drive-in...
13 April 2003 | by (Jan-Michael Vincent's Impenetrable Bunker) – See all my reviews

Though made in 1987, 'Enemy Territory' most resembles a drive-in exploitation movie from the seventies. Silly script, over-acting by all concerned, non-stop action and a dated 'urban' soundtrack all mean one thing - FUN!!! I've seen this countless times now, but enjoy it at every viewing. Pretty hard to find (and still no DVD release) but worth it for those seeking a 'drive-in' fix......8/10
