The Kingdom 2007

The Kingdom

Critics Consensus

While providing several top-notch action scenes, The Kingdom ultimately collapses under the weight of formula and muddled politics.

Movie Info

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.

    I went into this movie not knowing what it was about or reading much on it and I found myself getting really sucked into the whole story, Many thanks to a strong cast all who were at their best, Even though it is a pretty slow film it was never boring and the last 20 minutes even though were great and fast paced it didn't fit the whole mood of the movie, Way better than I expected and if you're into modern day war action/drama this should be near the top of your list on movies to watch.

    From writer/director Peter Berg comes the political thriller The Kingdom. When there's a major terrorist bombing at an American base in Saudi Arabia the FBI sends in a team to investigate, but the politics of the situation threatens to erupt in more violence. Starring Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner, and Jason Bateman, the film has a strong cast that delivers some good performances. And, Berg's directing does an extraordinary job at bringing tension and excitement to the scenes. The script is also well-crafted; presenting some provocative questions about terrorism, the cycle of violence, and cultural relativism. Though the politics may get a little heavy at times, The Kingdom is smart and action packed.

    The Kingdom was an exciting thrill ride, with great a great performance from Jamie Foxx.

    This movie was just average up until the last ten seconds when they played the "we're terrorists to them so they're terrorists to us" card.
