      Rules of Engagement, directed by William Friedkin is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for scenes of war violence, and for language. The original release date was March 31, 2000 for United States audience. This movie falls in the genre of Action/Drama/Thriller/War and stars Tommy Lee Jones as Colonel Hayes Hodges, Samuel L. Jackson as

      Colonel Terry L. Childers, Guy Pearce as Major Mark Biggs, Ben Kingsley as Ambassador Mourain, Bruce Greenwood as National Security Advisor Bill Sokal, Anne Archer as Mrs. Mourain and Blair Underwood as Captain Lee.

      Colonel Childers did the right thing and nothing anyone could say would prove otherwise. These are the tragedies of warfare, take it or leave it.

      A great film with alot of beginning action, stirring coutroom drama and veteran stars that always deliver of the hype of any given role. A job well done and a mivie worth watching. Enjoy!
