Three Kings Reviews

August 19, 2014
This is quite simply the best anti-war movie since Catch 22. Wild, whacko, irreverent, chaotic, you are never sure what will happen next or where your loyalties lie. The innate utter stupidity of war is beautifully exposed, as are the often all too ordinary motivations of those who participate in it - lust for adventure, fame, promotion, wealth, but also sudden compassion, honesty and reflection. A roller coaster ride of action and thrills with sudden counterpoints of instant horror that make you think and ashamed of yourself for laughing out loud just a moment before. If this doesn't shake some holy beliefs in the truth of what we are told, and the justification for what we are doing, nothing will. Highly recommended! 4 Stars 4-2-14

"--Kuveyt'te çok kötü ?eyler

--Evet, çok kötü ?eyler oldu.
Gurur duymuyorum.
--Kimin ülkesi daha sap?k?
Saddam çok deli olabilir.
Sizler Irak'?n tamam?n?
bombalayacak kadar delisiniz.
--Çok fazla bombalama delilik
ama Kuveyt'i kurtarmak de?il.
--Kuveyt halk?n?
kurtarmaya m? geldiniz?
Gerçekten mi?
Dünyada zor durumda
olan pek çok halk var. . .

Ba?ka bir ülkeyi i?gal edemezsiniz.

Sure, this war flick raises various (and important questions) on America's foreign policy during the Gulf War, but where O. Russel's film truly shines is in the directors ability for visual flare and the hilarious satirical approach taken towards American soldiers desensitization to violence.

What I got to say about "Three Kings" is it's an good movie. The performances in this movie are so well acted. The directing and screenplay by David O. Russell is so extraordinary. "I'm raving that "Three Kings" successfully blends elements of action, drama, and comedy into a thoughtful, exciting movie on the Gulf War."

Good movie but no way near the truth.
May 27, 2014
One of the more underrated war films.

Astounding! David O. Russell made his mark as a director and at the same time screenwriter with this movie. It will leave you speechless at times while you question yourself as to "where are the limits of our moral judgement?".

Written and directed by David O. Russell (Flirting With Disaster (1996), The Fighter (2010) and Silver Linings Playbook (2012)) and based on a story by John Ridley (U Turn (1997) and 12 Years a Slave (2013)), this black war satire is loosely based on Kelly's Heroes, and it's a powerful and offbeat caper, and despite a well-documented nightmare of a production, it manages to be compelling and exciting all at once. March 1991, the First Gulf War in Iraq is over, Kuwait has been liberated. But a platoon of U.S. Soldiers have to pick up the pieces, and while Reserve Sergeant Troy Barlow (Mark Wahlberg) are disarming Iraqi soldiers, they find a map which seemingly pinpoints the location of gold bullion stolen from Kuwait, hidden in one of Saddam Hussein's bunkers. Barlow sets off with Major Archie Gates (George Clooney). Staff Sergeant Chief Elgin (Ice Cube) and Private Conrad Vig (Spike Jonze) to search for the gold, which they plan to steal for themselves, and it seems to go along easily, but they soon get caught up with Iraqi prisoners, and then Troy ends up being captured. It manages to be grisly, but a few minutes later, laugh out loud funny, and it's not the sort of situation you would expect to find humour in either. However, Russell manages to get the best out of his cast, and it helped put him briefly on the map as a director to watch for, but his temper would nearly kill his career.

This movie has some very funny moments and also some really serious scenes. The cast has good chemistry together. The script has plenty of good moments and a few typical ones. Overall I would recommend this film.

good to see a treatise on the desert storm operation of 1991 that is given a satirical edge.
November 23, 2012
A creepy, violent, thought-provoking film.
April 9, 2014
It began as a witty and smart dark satire, but it quickly became just another american war movie. I don't get it, why do they have to make a hero out of every single american soldier? I thought this one's gonna be different, but they saved everyone at the end. It could've been a brilliant movie, but it was ruined by a rather distasteful ending.

Es disfrutable, pero, la falta de focus, cohesion y falta de credibilidad no la hacen especialmente destacable.
March 11, 2014
If only the actual war was this witty and levelheaded.
October 13, 2013
Three kings is a great movie. I saw this after seeing Russel's Hustle and Playbook, so I expected the world. This doesn't provide that, but it provides enough! Good timeless humour, subtle character play, situational problems and coincidental truths make up this thrilling ride. It has its moments of idyllic sarcasm. Some angles in the shots are quite interesting. Acting is quite good but not the strong part of the movie. Please do watch this one, even if it seems a decade ago.
March 4, 2014
Forgoing a realistic plot for satire, Three Kings is a fresh take on war films.
March 1, 2014
Amongst all the war based films theres actually not many about the Gulf War but this film directed by David O Russell is a very good one that takes place at the end of the war as military personel go looking for the stolen gold from Kuwait and this film follows 3 soldiers in particular who want it for different reasons. This is one of those films that passed me by but highly recommended
February 25, 2014
An absolute blast, Three Kings has great performances, a super smart and witty script, and very well handled direction that make it not just a film, but is possibly David O Russell's best film (this, or The Fighter)
