I know that many films could come under this description but let me narrow it down.

A Lonely Place To Die is one such film. A group of mountaineers find a girl buried in an underground chamber and try to get her to safety but come under attack from the girls kidnappers. Orfinary people on an ordinary climb finding themselves in a situation beyond their control and out of their comfort zone.

That's the kind of film I'm talking about, not about the army versus aliens for instance.
