HEAT get's a lot of love, but "The Kingdom" doesnt get as much attention

Lots of gun play. Good plot. Decent depiction of tactics by terrorists.



Does anyone else like "The Kingdom"?

I like looking at Jennifer garner.

The movies pretty good too.

The intro sequence with the timeline is one of the best intros I've ever seen.

It's one of the best movies I've seen in a theater.

I've watched it several times and I enjoy it more each time. It just seems to have the perfect mix of action, showing how assbackwards terrorists are, and "who-dun-it" to keep me entertained.

Great movie, I need to pick it up on DVD.

Good movie but I found the fact that they'd send a woman to investigate a crime in one of the most conservative Muslim countries in the world a little hokey.

That timeline intro was scary, and shows how global political events are tied together in ways most never realize.

Jenn Garner was a cutie too...

+1 good movie. The filmwork helps out alot. I think the Gardner character was created to appeal to the female audience, and actualy allowed the film to highlight the issue of women and religion/politics in that culture. They even had a "David and Goliath" scene when she saves Jason Bateman from the big giant badguy. She bladed at 45 on that dude and did some quality work . This had to make the ladies in the crowd feel giddy.

Big +1 on the intro. I thought it was a very good flick.

Good flick.

Good flick. I've used it as a training aid by having guys watch it the night before going on a low-vis drive. Gives them an idea of how fast things can go bad.

It was decent. 6/10

Excellent movie, one of my favorites.

The final words really highlighted the mutual hatred that Muslims have for us as well as the hatered we have for terrorists> "We will kill them all".

I thought it was a great ending.

Its pretty good, but what gun was Al Pacino carrying?

I thought it was good, warranted me buying the DVD and watching several times

I liked it. The apartment building fight at the end was intense.

Loved the movie, even though I can't stand that asshat Jamie Fox.

It's a great movie. One of my favorites.

Liked it. Definitely worthy of the library.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 3:27:42 AM EST
I thought it was rather odd that only Jamie Foxx's character could see what was happening at any given moment.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 3:28:55 AM EST
Bought it before I saw it, then watched it. Glad that worked out, Good movie

Fox's character regretted that he said "we will kill them all" to comfort Garner in the briefing room, he'd realized that not all Saudis were bad people.

When they made us look the same as the terrorists at the end of the movie...I will never watch it again, I am glad I didn't pay money to see it.

YMMV.

i too enjoyed the film. I love the characters that Jason Bateman and Chris Cooper played and the last part of the movie was awesome

I liked it. One of the few movies i've watched more than twice.

Wasn't Michael Mann (the director of the movie Heat) an executive producer or have some similar type role in The Kingdom.

Liked it, except the unbelievable neat line of holes on the Suburban drilled by a full auto G3

Awesome movie, I recorded it last night on HBO, haven't watched it yet today though.

Great flick. I thought the message in the end hit the mark. Both sides will always be fighting. It will never end.

Good flick. Reminds me of why I never want to go back to that third-world cesspool.

I always thought the Saudi's were more deserving of our 'attentions' than the Iraqi's during my time there (pre and post 9/11)

What a comeback from Jason Bateman. Who would have known Teenwolf2 would give some surprisingly quality performances lately with the likes of this movie and Smokin Aces and others. I had forgotten all about him and then he pops up and does a great job with every character I've seen him play.

Good movie. The Freeway scene was filmed a couple miles down the 202 loop from my house.

No shit? I would have guessed that was somewhere in the middle east. It looked JUST like the stretch of road we used all the time at PSAB (Prince Sultan Air Base).

Fun fact: PSAB was constructed by the Bin Laden group. I shit you not.

Rented it on Netflix previously, debating whether to re-rent or just go ahead and buy it. If I decide to buy, I may hold off till after the wife goes back to work. Once she starts working again (since she is taking almost 2 months after having the baby), we want to save up for a new LCD TV to replace the old 27" tv in our living room. We are hoping to go with something between 46 and 55 inches. If we get a good HD LCD, I'd like to get a Blu Ray Player (or maybe a PS3 since already got 360 and Wii). If I get something in Blu Ray, then I may go with The Kingdom on a Blu Ray disc.

Hmmm Jennifer Garner. I once went out with a girl who looked just like her. Too bad she was f-ing insane!

YMMV.


How did it make us look just like them at the end?

As said before, Fox's character regretted saying that 'they would kill them all' when they asked him what he told Garner's character after they found out about the bombing.

Yeah, they covered all the road signs up, and the cacti were concealed by bushes.
