Captured is a gripping action thriller from 1998 directed by Peter Liapis, starring Nick Mancuso, Andrew Divoff, Linda Hoffman, and Michael Mahonen. It's a story of two American soldiers and their race against time to save their fellow comrades from the clutches of a ruthless terrorist group. The movie opens with a group of US Marine soldiers on a mission in the Middle East. Captain Don Harding (Nick Mancuso) and Sergeant Michael Bavaro (Michael Mahonen) are two of these soldiers. They are leading a group of Marines into a small town that's become overrun by terrorists. The mission is to rescue hostages taken by the terrorists and eliminate the threat.

But things don't go as planned. The terrorists are heavily armed and brutally violent. The Marines are quickly overpowered and taken hostage. The terrorists demand a ransom of $10 million for the release of the hostages.

The US government, led by Colonel John Burke (Andrew Divoff), sends a team of special forces soldiers to rescue the hostages. But they're too late. The terrorists moved the hostages to a secret location, and the special forces team is ambushed and killed.

With no other options left, Harding and Bavaro regroup and take matters into their own hands. They go rogue and set out to rescue their fellow Marines. It's a suicidal mission, but it's the only way they can bring their brothers-in-arms back home.

The rest of the movie is a thrilling ride, full of action and suspense. Harding and Bavaro navigate through treacherous enemy territory. They sneak into the jungle, where they face all sorts of dangers, from snakes to booby-trapped explosives. They engage in fierce shootouts with terrorists, using all their training and experience to stay alive.

Meanwhile, Colonel Burke and his team of intelligence agents are trying to gather information about the terrorists. They track down one of the terrorists' couriers, a young girl named Fara (Linda Hoffman). Burke convinces Fara to help the US government by providing them with information about the terrorists' whereabouts.

Fara becomes Harding and Bavaro's unlikely ally. She helps them navigate the jungle and avoid the terrorists. Although at first, she's only helping them because she fears for her life, she soon becomes invested in their mission. She sees that they're fighting for a just cause, and she wants to help them succeed.

The final act of the movie is a pulse-pounding rescue mission. Harding and Bavaro storm the terrorist stronghold, using all their skills and firepower to take down the terrorists and free the hostages. It's an epic battle, full of explosions, gunfire, and hand-to-hand combat.

The movie's climax is a satisfying resolution to the story. The Marines are rescued, and the terrorists are taken down. But the price of their victory is high. Many of the Marines are injured, some permanently. And there's a sense that Harding and Bavaro's actions will have consequences that they'll have to face later.

Captured is an intense and thrilling movie, full of action and suspense. The acting is top-notch, particularly Nick Mancuso's performance as Captain Harding, who is a stoic and determined soldier. Andrew Divoff is also excellent as the hard-nosed Colonel Burke, who will stop at nothing to complete his mission. The movie's pacing is fast, and the action scenes are well choreographed, making for an exciting watch.

Overall, Captured is a must-watch for fans of action movies, particularly those who enjoy military-themed thrillers. It's an old-school movie that holds up well, even more than two decades after its release. If you're looking for a thrilling ride, check out Captured.
