One Word: AMAZING!
When a terrorist bomb detonates inside a Western housing compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, an international incident is ignited. While diplomats slowly debate equations of territorialism, FBI Special Agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) quickly assembles an elite team (Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner, and Jason Bateman) and negotiates a secret five-day trip into Saudi Arabia to locate the madman behind the bombing. Upon landing in the desert kingdom, however, Fleury and his team discover Saudi authorities suspicious and unwelcoming of American interlopers into what they consider a local matter. Hamstrung by protocol-and with the clock ticking on their five days-the FBI agents find their expertise worthless without the trust of their Saudi counterparts, who want to locate the terrorist in their homeland on their own terms. Fleury’s crew finds a like-minded partner in Saudi Colonel Faris Al-Ghazi (Ashraf Barhoum), who helps them navigate royal politics and unlock the secrets of the crime scene and the workings of an extremist cell bent on further destruction. With these unlikely allies sharing a propulsive commitment to crack the case, the team is led to the killer’s front door in a blistering do-or-die confrontation. Now in a fight for their own lives, strangers united by one mission won’t stop until justice is found in The Kingdom.
The way the movie was directed was unreal! The action scenes were cool, the story was well written and acted and they didn’t seem to have that sorta ideal that “All Muslims are evil!”. I loved the start of the movie (the opening credits) which I really won’t get into since most of you may not have seen the movie yet but I will say that it’s interesting information! The action scenes were cool and there is one scene when you’ll go OUCH! One thing that got me puzzled was that Jennifer Gardener played one of the FBI agents but she walked around in tiny little t-shirts instead of covering up which you’re supposed to do when you leave Western Compounds there. Just something I noticed along with the Police dudes praying on the ground instead of prayer mats! Prince Thamer was a hottie & Faris the cop was so funny when talking to the FBI agents!
By far, it’s the best movie I’ve watched this year and it’s one that I’d watch time & time again! I’d totally recommend it![rating: 4.5/5]
