Behind Enemy Lines Information

hey, if im looking for an action flick that has little talking and tons of action, is Behind Enemy Lines a good choice? I need a movie that is the exact opposite of Apocalypse Now and Das Boot (although both were great movies), meaning that I need alot of action, not so much talking. I read reviews about this movie, and most of the complaints were that it wasnt smart. The main reason i want this film is because i want to show it to my father, who is from Korea, meaning that he cant speak or understand complexing plots or conversations, but loves to see things blow up. Any response will be greatly appreciated, and i apologize for the many threads that i have posted in these 2 days.

BEL is a really really stupid movie. Its so ridiculous you might turn it off before its over. The sound and action are good though.

actually, i just bought the movie, and it was great! its such a relief from all of these long and tedious movies that i own, and i really needed a "popcorn" flick to work me up again. i think that if i did not own alot of complex movies, then i wouldnt of had enjoyed BEL as much. but in my point of view, i think u guys are judging this movie too harshly. i mean, it wasnt THAT dumb...right?

Agreed. I definitely liked and didn't spend my time trying to deconstruct each scenes plausibility. That's not why I rented it.
