Seal Team 8 - Behind Enemy Lines
Here’s the plot -
SEAL Team 8 is sent on an unsanctioned mission in Africa to find a secret mining operation and prevent weapons-grade uranium from falling into the hands of terrorists. While on an unsanctioned covert mission in Africa, a small team of S.E.A.L.s uncovers intelligence pointing to the imminent sale of a massive quantity of weapons grade uranium. Now, with no mission prep and zero support, they have less than 36 hours to fight their way past a ruthless warlord's army guarding this secret mining operation, hidden deep in the treacherous Congo, in order to secure the yellowcake and expose the unknown buyer.
Directed by Roel Reine and shot on location in South Africa, this is actually a pretty good movie – especially if you are a Lex fan
He’s in pretty much EVERY SCENE!
Don’t be put off by the “Starring Tom Sizemore” blurb – he’s hardly in it! This is very much Lex’s film and he looks as if he’s having a whale of a time – getting paid to play soldiers without the risk of getting hurt – every boy’s dream surely.
The story isn’t exactly brilliant and it’s true this film will never win any Oscars, but as the advert says – it does what it says on the tin. It’s a good, old fashioned action adventure film with lots of running around, shooting and blowing things up.
That’s pretty much it and while there are plenty of films out there that are very worthy, high brow and intellectual, with a “message” to get across, Seal Team 8 is not one of them and doesn’t pretend to be.
There’s a time and a place for everything and sometimes all you need is to sit back and be entertained for a while with lots of lovely shots of Lex in combat fatigues running around with a big gun – and this fits the bill perfectly!
We watched it at the end of what had been a particularly stressful week and it was the perfect antidote. So if you’ve had a bad week at work then I highly recommend ordering in, opening a bottle of something and putting Seal Team 8 in your DVD player.
You can get it from Amazon (other DVD retailers are available!) for under a tenner and it’s even on Blu Ray if you have a fancy multi region Blu Ray player.
