Synopsis: Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson deliver electrifying performances in this “tense, superbly-directed and top-drawer drama” about what happens when the rules that command a soldier become the rules that condemn him.
Colonel Terry Childers (Jackson) is a patriot and war hero. But when a peacekeeping mission he leads in Yemen goes terribly wrong, he finds himself facing a court martial. Accused of breaking the rules of engagement by killing unarmed civilians, Childers’ only hope of vindication rests with comrade-in-arms Hays Hodges (Tommy Lee Jones), a military lawyer of questionable abilities. Together, they face the battle of their lives.
Directed by Oscar-winning director William Friedkin and co-starring Guy Pearce, Bruce Greenwood, Anne Archer and Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley, Rules Of Engagement is “a magnificent movie you must see.”
