The Kingdom


thekingdomIn the wake of a major terrorist attack in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with many U.S. casualties, theĀ FBI secretly sends a team headed by Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) to investigate.Ā Director Peter Berg delivers an entertaining thriller (shot in the United Arab Emirates) that feels like an extended, juiced-up episode ofĀ CSIĀ orĀ 24; the story is uncomplicated even though it tries (and doesnā€™t really succeed) to show how complex the relationships are between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, and the royal family and the powerful extremists. Itā€™s lightweight, but fairly exciting; the cast is game.
