The Enemy is a 2001 movie directed by Tom Kinninmont and starring Luke Perry, Olivia d'Abo, and Roger Moore. This is an action-packed thriller movie that tells the story of a group of British soldiers who are sent on a mission to destroy a German fuel depot in a Libyan desert during World War II. The movie starts with the British soldiers landing in the desert and preparing for their mission. The group is led by Captain David Franks played by Luke Perry who is a tough and experienced soldier. Among the soldiers is also Sergeant Harry McBain played by Roger Moore, who is a veteran soldier nearing the end of his career.

The mission starts off smoothly, but everything changes when the group stumbles across a small village in the desert. Here they discover evidence of Nazi atrocities and also come across a group of children that have been left to die. The soldiers take it upon themselves to rescue the children and bring them back to their base, but this decision proves costly.

Meanwhile, the Germans get wind of the British mission and are determined to stop them at all costs. This sets off a chain of events that leads to a thrilling confrontation between the two sides in the middle of the desert. The British soldiers find themselves outnumbered and outgunned, and it looks as though they may not make it out alive.

Throughout the movie, we see the characters struggle with their morality and their duty as soldiers. Captain Franks must lead his men and make tough decisions that could cost them their lives, while also grappling with the consequences of his actions. Sergeant McBain, on the other hand, must come to terms with the fact that he is nearing the end of his career and may not make it out of this mission alive.

The movie is visually stunning with breathtaking landscapes of the Libyan desert. The action scenes are well choreographed and keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The movie is also helped by a great score that adds to the tension and drama throughout.

The acting in the movie is strong with Luke Perry delivering a particularly impressive performance as Captain Franks. He manages to portray the character's toughness and vulnerability, creating a well-rounded and likable protagonist. Roger Moore, though not in the movie for long, delivers a memorable performance as the grizzled Sergeant McBain.

Overall, The Enemy is a fantastic movie that delivers on all fronts. It has action, drama, and thrills that will keep the audience engaged from start to finish. The characters are complex and well-developed, adding an extra layer of depth to this already impressive movie. If you are a fan of war movies or action thrillers, then The Enemy is definitely a movie worth watching.
