Facing The Enemy is a 2001 film that follows a successful businessman, Griff McCleary (Linden Ashby), who is running for political office. His life is turned upside down when a former client, James Rosales (Maxwell Caulfield), takes matters into his own hands and kidnaps him. Rosales blames Griff for the financial ruin of his company, and plans to get revenge by forcing Griff to confess to his wrongdoing in front of a live television audience.

The majority of the film takes place in a secluded, high-tech bunker where Griff is being held captive. Rosales has gone to great lengths to create the perfect environment for his "confession," including a team of hackers, a team of surveillance experts, and a team of psychologists to monitor Griff's every move. The bunker is equipped with the latest technology, including biometric scanners, motion sensors, and numerous cameras.

The plot of the movie revolves around Griff's attempts to escape, while also maintaining his innocence. He quickly realizes that he is no match for the advanced technology, and that the only way out is to play along with Rosales’ game. However, Griff also knows that he must be careful with what he says, as Rosales is always listening and watching him.

Meanwhile, Griff's wife, Karen (Alexandra Paul), becomes involved in the case as she tries to work with the authorities to track down her husband's location. She is assisted by FBI Agent Will Spanner (Michael Dorn), who is sympathetic to Karen's cause but is also aware of the sensitive nature of the case, as it involves a private citizen being held hostage.

As the film progresses, Griff is put through a series of physical and mental challenges designed to break him down and force him to confess. These challenges include emotional manipulation, sleep deprivation, and even physical torture. Throughout it all, Griff remains steadfast in his belief that he has done nothing wrong.

The tension in the film builds steadily as both Griff and Karen try to outsmart Rosales and his team. With each passing minute, the stakes get higher and the situation becomes more desperate. The film's climax comes as Griff is forced to confront Rosales in front of a live television audience, and decides to take drastic action to clear his name and escape from captivity.

Overall, Facing The Enemy is a well-crafted thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The performances from the cast are strong, particularly Linden Ashby as the hero caught in a terrifying situation, and Maxwell Caulfield as the cold and calculating antagonist determined to get his revenge. The advanced technology used in the bunker creates an interesting and unique backdrop for the story, adding an element of sci-fi to the thriller genre. With its fast-paced action, clever twists and turns, and powerful performances, Facing The Enemy is a must-see for fans of the suspense thriller genre.

Facing The Enemy is a 2001 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.7.
