Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia is a 2009 American war film directed by Tim Matheson and starring Joe Manganiello, former WWE and TNA wrestler Ken Anderson, Keith David and Matheson.
It is the third installment in the series, as well as the sequel to Behind Enemy Lines, and Behind Enemy Lines II: Axis of Evil. The film was co-produced by WWE Studios, written by Tobias Iaconis and released direct-to-video on 06 January 2009.
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 do not 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 warriors 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.
