Synopsis


The Kingdom
In the aftermath of a deadly attack on American forces in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, diplomats are slow to act, but meanwhile, FBI special agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) assembles a secret team of U.S. counter-terrorism investigators to enter the city and find the criminal behind what has quickly become an international incident. The crew, however, finds their attempt to capture the perpetrators stalled by bureaucracy and their presence unwelcome. Desperate to gain the trust they need to accomplish their mission in just five days, the team enlists the aid of a Saudi Arabian police officer (Ashraf Barhoum), but as the agents infiltrate the dark and complex world of the Saudi crime scene, they find that the perpetrator's next target may be them. Directed by Peter Berg, The Kingdom also stars Jennifer Garner, Chris Cooper, and Jason Bateman. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

    jamie foxx stars in this over the top thriller and nearly everything about this movie is a plus. the cast is nicely placed and peter berg has mastered the shaky cam perferctly. everything about the movie seems almost like theres no bad guys. thats what they want you to think because its all clocking down the last 30 minutes wich is very intense and extremly well done. now that doesnt mean that the rest of the kingdom isnt well done because it is. its a solid war near epic but not so much as a complete masterpiece or best picture. its mainly a nice surprise with an unexptected climax in which the timing for it is so off, it felt like the real war where the unexpected could happen at any time.

    The Kingdom starring Jennifer Garner and Jamie Foxx was a great movie, one of the best of 2007. This movie was so intense that at the end of the movie I had to relax for a second, but every second had me on the edge of my seat. The performances in this movie were great. The direction was great. The Special Features were truly explosive as the movie is too. Behind the Scenes interviews were very insightful. RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!! GREAT MOVIEEE!!!

    This movie has the action too keep you intertained, and you become emtionally attached too it only 10 minutes into the movie! It basically brings the war to your home, and you see what is happening! for the most part the action was good, but I feel that some of could have been better. also, I think it needs subtitles...which it might have in the DVD version! I didnt like not knowing what they were saying when they were not speaking english. this is a must buy!

    This is a great movie in showing you what people are going though to fight for our freedom. The movie was great and kept me on the the edge of my set the whole time. I have always been thankful for the people fighting for America, but this movie just made me feel more great full for them all. An outstanding cast makes the movie great and the story line and the plot just makes you glued to the television.

    Underrated Film

    "The Kingdom" is probably Peter Berg's best movie. It's an action movie, but it's also a drama that deals with substantive issues. The two main Saudi Arabian characters are as fully-developed as the main American characters, and they're treated with dignity and respect by the filmmakers. The Blu-ray software takes advantage of what the technology is capable of handling. Also, you get great video and audio quality.

    This movie was fantastic. It was constantly suspenseful. It will run you through a whole range of emotion from sadness, anger, excitement, joy, etc. The movie keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire ride. This movie, like most movies about the middle east, definately has an agenda. The agenda does not become completely clear until the end but don't let it stop you from watching it.

    I knew this movie was going to be good, but it actually turned out to be even better than I'd expected. This movie has a very good storyline that is delivered well by the characters and features a decent amount of action, but doesn't go overboard to kill the story. They even throw in a touch of comedy every now and then. Definitely should ad this one to your HD-DVD collection.
