Thomas Ian Griffith,
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! Written by
Thankfully I worked in film retail/rental and from there have developed the good sense of trusting nobody's opinion but my own as far as the quality of enjoyment to be got out of films is concerned. I rented three films today and as always checked them on IMDb before deciding which one to watch first. BEL 2 had the worst ratings but from the comments was the sort of film I was in the mood for. And guess what, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only was the acting professional, most of the special effects where OK and the mix between action and politics was balanced. This film was also definitely better than BEL 1 in nearly every aspect, especially the acceptability of military actions and casualties. I will probably watch this once more in a few years.
