The Kingdom

Charged with the most important assignment of his career, federal agent Ron Fleury (Jamie Foxx) has one week to assemble a team, infiltrate and destroy a terrorist cell based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Culture shock and opposition from local law enforcement combine to hinder his progress and that of his elite team (Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman), but a sympathetic Saudi police captain becomes an unexpected comrade-in-arms.

The Kingdom

The movie was a good reminder of the problems the US has with its "friends" and its "friends" have with their subjects. Just as US policy is not the philosophy of all Americans, the Saudis have to balance between causing civil revolt by upsetting its peoples and keeping the US happy enough to keep the oil supply liquid.

As a movie, it was a fair enough plot. In the end I felt I wanted the investigation phase to last longer as I am sure that clues do not come so easily in real life.

Michael Mann Style Action Movie

If you liked "Heat" and wanted "Miami Vice" to be better you won't be disappointed by "The Kingdom". If you go expecting any kind of political angle to the movie then you'll enjoy it less. It is moving at points in the same way that Michael Mann's films can be and it has really good action sequences and solid acting by Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper, and Jennifer Garnet. Ashraf Barhom, who plays Jamie Foxx's counterpart in Saudi Arabia, steals the show and is an actor to watch.

The Kingdom (2007) - Review

Peter Berg's 'The Kingdom' starts off with a brief and interesting history of oil and US/Saudi relationships.

Loosely based on a real life 1996 bombing incident, the movie begings with a horrific terrorist action against a US compound in the The Kingdom (Saudi Arabia) and then quickly turns to your typical blow up action genre that looks like a video game.

Jamie Foxx plays Agent Ronald Fleury, an FBI agent and a dad and family man. He muzzles his way into Saudi Arabia, along with his team, played by Jennifer Garner as a sensitive yet tough forensics expert, Chris Copper as explosives specialist Grant Sykes and a wise cracking Jason Bateman. Once in The Kingdom they find themselves baby sat by another sincere family man and Saudi police officer Colnel Faris Al-Ghazi who ends up playing on their side. Then, there is a young Saudi Prince played by Omar Berdouni and an assorted set of other characters including a Saudi Republican Guard General AL Abdulmalik and the terrorist master mind Abu Hamzi.

The movie continues with the FBI team investigating the bombing the CSI way, and ends with a highway chase that turns to a convenient rescue and recovery operation. And oh - there is a final message at the end that is both naive and unwarranted.
