Behind Enemy Lines II: Axis of Evil is the sequel to Behind Enemy Lines. It is both written and directed by James Dodson. This film finds four U.S. Navy Seals abandoned behind enemy lines in North Korea in search of a missile carrying nuclear weapons. President Adair Manning (Peter Coyote), orders an abort, but it is too late. The four Navy Seals, led by Lieutenant Robert James (Nicholas Gonzalez), must find a way to stay alive and not be captured. The Seals find themselves out of contact, but they still realize they have to do their job to prevent an all out war from occurring between the United States and North Korea. This involves facing the North Korean forces led by Commander Hwang (Joseph Steven Yang), as well as partnering with the South Korean Special Forces. The fate of the United States depends on the U.S. Seals' ability to survive.
