A Hero Should Never Have To Stand Alone

Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson deliver electrifying performances in this "tense, superbly-directed and top-drawer drama" (Jeffrey Lyons, NBC-TV) 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 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 (The Exorcist) 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" (Larry King, USA Today).
