The Kingdom - Jamie Foxx
I purchased this film on HD-DVD having seen it months ago, It is with out a doubt one of my favourite films ive seen this year. The acting is spot on, the action is very suspenseful and it really keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. Chris Cooper and Jamie Foxx are superb. Buy this film NOW!!
"SYRIANA MEETS BLACK HAWK DOWN"
After a ruthless raid on a western housing compound in Saudi Arabia leaves more than a hundred dead, Special Agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) defies orders by flying in his team of investigators to work the crime scene. Initially hamstrung by official protocol and the intransigence of the local authorities, Fleury eventually wins over his handler, colonel Al Ghazi (Ashraf Barhom), as his fellow investigators - explosives expert Chris Cooper, forensics examiner Jennifer Garner and intelligence whizz Jason Bateman - identify the extremists behind the outrage. Unbeknownst to them, however, their prey are planning a lethal counter-attack that will put all their lives in danger... "SYRIANA MEETS BLACK HAWK DOWN" Deftly negotiating the complex practicalities of launching a murder enquiry in one of the most hostile countries on the planet, Peter Berg's engrossing film combines the detail of Syriana with a clashing-cultures motif redolent of Black Rain. By the end, though, it has morphed into Black Hawk Down, complete with a frenzied assault on a militant hide-out that wouldn't look out of place in Rambo IV.Read full review
fantastic film, the best action film i've seen in ages
Heard the film was supposed to be really good and when i saw it on ebay for a reasonable price i just had to get it and im glad i did. the only dislike was that it jumped abit at the very end but apart from that very good.
THIS IS GOOD MOVIE AND WOULD RECOMEND IT,THERE IS ALOT OF ACTION AND A GOOD STORY...TO THIS...IT GIVES YOU AN IDEA WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF IT WAS REAL LIFE...
Great action, authentic settings
Great action film, and very authentic scene settings despite not being able to film in Saudi Arabia. Interesting political relationships between the Americans (FBI) and the Saudi authorities, and some great action. Reasonably well balanced with a sensitive portrayal of the Saudi culture and issues. Recommend watching.
