Review The Kingdom is a police procedural with a unique - and interesting - twist. While the movie employs all of the investigative techniques we have become familiar with as a result of countless TV shows, there's a little more to this movie than CSI: Saudi Arabia. Politics of many different sorts play a role here, from the international need to keep relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia cordial to the difficulties faced by a female investigator working in a country where women do not hold equal positions to men. Actor-turned-director Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) handles the tricky material of Matthew Michael Carnahan's dense script effectively and turns out a movie that is both intelligent and, at least in its latter stages, pulse-pounding...The Kingdom is a hard film to pigeonhole because it crosses genres so freely. The pacing is also a little unwieldy. Those who are there for the higher octane elements may distracted during the lengthy investigative section. And those who are hoping for something with the heft and complexity of Syriana may find the all-action conclusion to be a little too loud...Overall, however, the film is smart and engaging, and if it plays a little on our fears of the next big terrorist attack, it does so without feeling exploitative.

Review The Kingdom begins with a history lesson that alternates with the opening credits. Then as terrorists attack a softball game among oil company employees and their families in an American housing compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, a widely varied assortment of characters is introduced, beginning with FBI agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) and including State Department officials, the attorney general, a reporter, and in Saudi Arabia, terrorists, cops, and vicious military officers. The opening looks as if it might evolve into something along the lines of Syriana, but screenwriter Michael Matthew Carnahan and director Peter Berg are no Stephen Gaghan. Their movie is nothing more than a standard-issue action flick gussied up in geopolitical clothing...It is a handsome production and Berg has a knack of creating suspense even from such obvious material. The actor turned director has been slowly building his portfolio since his 1998 debut Very Bad Things. After making the pleasant action comedy The Rundown and the sports drama Friday Night Lights, it is evident that Berg may someday make a truly great movie. The simplistic, jingoistic The Kingdom is not it.
