Kingdom, The


USA 2007, 110 minutes
Dir. Peter Berg
Genres: Action/Adventure / Hostages & Terrorism


Aroview: Jamie Foxx hunts a faction of terrorists in this Middle Eastern-set actioner concerning the aftermath of a suicide bombing on American citizens in Saudi Arabia.

Resisting the urge to blow things up until its explosive, bullet-ridden finale, retribution takes a backseat to crime scene investigation as an FBI dispatch join forces (and forge bonds) with Saudi police in scouring the bomb site for clues. Initially masquerading as an olive branch between Western and Muslim worlds, this ultimately succumbs to the temptation to kick ass, reinforcing its right-wing ideology to shoot first and ask questions later, making for an unthinking, but at times exhilirating action film.
