Films[edit]

Behind Enemy Lines (2001)[edit]

Lieutenant Chris Burnett, an American naval flight officer, is shot down over Bosnia and uncovers genocide during the Bosnian War. Meanwhile, his commanding officer is struggling to gain approval to launch a search and rescue mission to save Burnett.

Behind Enemy Lines II: Axis of Evil (2006)[edit]

After reconnaissance satellites detect a large, three-stage Topol intercontinental ballistic missile carrying a nuclear weapon in North Korea, which can strike anywhere in the continental United States, President Adair T. Manning orders a team of U.S. Navy SEALs to destroy the missile and the launch site.

Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia (2009)[edit]

Colombia is in chaos, as a five man team of US Navy SEALS embark on a secret mission to ensure that peace talks between the country's government and insurgent guerrillas don't erupt into violence, an unforeseen complication threatens all out war. Out of nowhere, the meeting falls under attack and the leaders from both sides are killed. The SEALS have been framed for the crime, leaving them to fight for their lives from behind enemy lines against the Colombian Special Forces (AFEUR). Abandoned by their government and left for dead, the weary soldiers race to uncover the evidence that will prove their innocence while ensuring that the violence is contained. Should the fighting spill over the border, the entire region or both sides could be plunged into a nightmarish inferno of war and death.

SEAL Team 8: Behind Enemy Lines (2014)[edit]

A team of United States Navy SEALs 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.
