Too slick for its own good.
July 6, 2019
A sad waste of a subject rife with possibility - a dumbing down of complex themes into violent action fodder for the masses

One-dimensional cartoon nonsense.

There's no real difference between choreographing a bloody jihadist skirmish and a gridiron match

A good deal more Transformers than Syriana, a movie that drapes a crisp, lightly browsed copy of The Economist over an enormous pubescent boner for grinding metal, busted glass, and crackling gunfire.

[I]t fails in its attempt to be a serious drama with important things to say about the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East.

Treats world history as a sports arena where the US has the home-team advantage, because America considers the entire world its private property. Which leaves a fairly loaded question: whose kingdom? Time to declare theaters demilitarized zones.

Funciona bem como divertimento escapista, mas temo que não era exatamente isso que o diretor e o roteirista tinham em mente quando realizaram o filme.

The Kingdom works as an exotic action thriller, but its politics are so choked on checks and balances it cancels itself out.

The film's American heroes are depicted as pig-headed, offensive bullies who claim the moral high ground but in the end can solve their problems only with guns and car chases.

Resembles Team America: World Police. It has better-looking puppets (but) suffers the same amount of string pulling.

It's a frenetic, often incomprehensible film, full of rapid cutting, giant close-ups and muttered dialogue.

Everyone knows that assaults on cherished American symbols never end well for the assailants.

The Kingdom is topical, but remove the setting, and you're left with a relatively brain-dead thriller.

...Peter Berg directs with the flailing fervor he usually displays...

Intelligent films about US involvement in the Middle East can be counted on the broken fingers of one hand, and this one makes Syriana look like Citizen Kane.

Rambo meets Syriana in this bloated action-thriller, which tries to be gung-ho and PC at the same time.
