L.A. Weekly - John Patterson
Worth it, though, for the conviction and ramrod-erect bearing that pros Jackson and Jones bring to their roles.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Works splendidly as a courtroom thriller about military values as long as you don't expect it to seriously consider those values.
Chicago Reader - Jonathan Rosenbaum
Friedkin does a superb job of serving up the well-appointed script by James Webb and Stephen Gaghan.
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan
Passable, moderately diverting dramatic entertainment.
New York Daily News - Jack Mathews
Sometimes, movies would work better if you couldn't see them.

Rules of Engagement (2000)

Part war movie, part courtroom thriller, this gripping drama finds a war hero put on trial for a rescue mission gone terribly wrong with only his doubtful friend and fellow marine to represent him.
