US satellites discover what seems to be nuclear missiles in North Korea. A team of Navy Seals are sent in to sabotage the missile base, but the mission is aborted at the last minute, but not before a group of Seals have already parachuted out of the plane and are trapped behind enemy lines in North Korea. Meanwhile, the president tries to find the right course of action to avoid the Korean War to be resumed.
Behind Enemy Lines 2 has an interesting premise and some good political intrigue. Its weakness is the bad action scenes. They are filmed with a shaky camera, apparently to give the scenes a more "realistic" feeling, but succeeding only in making them hard to follow, and often annoying to watch. Shaking the camera that much doesn't make the action scenes more exciting or suspenseful, just less watchable. And this visual style (shaky camera, spastic editing, occasional weird optic "effects") is used not only in action scenes but other scenes as well, especially in the first half of the movie. Halfway through the movie I was annoyed by the movie and thought it would only get a two star rating, but the story became more interesting in the last half, although the bad camerawork continued.
Weak three star rating, would have been much stronger in the hands of a competent director, cameraman and editor.
