Rating:
R
Under Fire is the acclaimed 1983 war drama from veteran filmmaker Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies, The Sixth Day, Turner and Hooch, And the Band Played On) and celebrated screenwriter Ron Shelton (Bull Durham). The movie takes place in Nicaragua where photographer Russell Price (Nick Nolte, Cape Fear, 48 Hours) is searching for the angle on the story of the revolution that's taking place. Nobody really cares about the revolution in Nicaragua stateside, until he notices the face of the revolution. Anytime he sees people waving the face of the leader of the revolution, there's the militia that's suppressing it and getting it out of view instantly. Nobody except the revolutionaries really knows who or where this person is. So he goes on a quest to find him and take his picture, which has never been done. He meets a mercenary (Ed Harris) in the process, who is on the militia's side and sees him kill one of the revolutionaries Price's befriended.moreless
