RULES OF EN­GAGE­MENT (2000) GEM, 8.40PM, M, AC­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Dec­o­rated US Marine Terry L. Childers (Sa­muel L. Jack­son) is court-mar­tialled for or­der­ing his men to open fire on un­armed pro­test­ers af­ter they stormed the US em­bassy in Ye­men, where the ambassador (Ben Kings­ley) was holed up. The blood­bath sparks an out­cry, and a de­fence lawyer (Tommy Lee Jones) and a re­lent­less prose­cu­tor (Guy Pearce) duke it out to de­ter­mine if Childers is a morally rep­re­hen­si­ble sol­dier or a vic­tim of clouded mil­i­tary ethics.
