I'm watching this and there's no sound from the actors. I hear background noise, but that's it. Something wrong with the stream. I tried other movies to see if it was my laptop and they are fine. Sort it out, Amazon!

Exellent movie with a great story and great actors
Verified purchase
I loved Rules of Engagement. Its a great film with a very believable story and great actors. Two top actors are the main characters in this movie and they do a great job. The movie is about a decorated army officer that is asked to protect the US embassy in Yemen. While doing so he made a very difficult choice to either protect his men by giving a shot to kill order or die in combat while protecting his men and embassy staff. The US government in the other hand to save face wants him on trial over murder while destroying evidence. Very thrilling story.I wont spoil it for anyone but all you need to know the story is great. The blu ray picture quality is not the best but its not bad either. Definetly a must watch movie.

All these years later and the film is still relevant. Warriors should be / cannot be held accountable for political situations. If the politicians command force be used; give them the gun and bullets and see how quick the situation is resolved.

We were misled
Verified purchase
Yes, Two

Yes, two main actors at the top of their game, but the viewer is basically misled. A piece of filming replaced an actual security tape, so we were deliberately misled. Cheating an audience, manipulating an audience blows a gaping hole the drama. Mind you, if we’d seen the security tape (which was illegally destroyed - a good story here which wasn’t used) or a piece of filming that actully showed us what had gone on ... no tension, no drama and no film.

wrong date, amazon trying to pass it off as a new film.. all your stuff is linked to IMDB so why do you constantly have the wrong dates displaying on prime? all I can think of is that you are deliberately trying to make people think you have new content that isn't 20 years old.

Tried to watch on prime but no speech. Seems like this has been the same since jan2019 at least. Why has this not been fixed. A real shoddy job amazon!! Pull your finger out and fix it
