The Kingdom

Director: Peter Berg
Year Released: 2007
Rating: 1.0

After a terrorist attack kills several hundred people in Saudi Arabia, four FBI agents fly in (unwanted) to investigate - every meager attempt to draw parallels between "us" and "them" (they have families too?!) is squelched when the movie literally turns into "America ... Fuck Yeah!" mode and rockets are fired, there's one long gunfight and someone nearly gets beheaded. As a proto-typical Hollywood Action Movie, it's too empty-headed to actually be offensive, and watching Jamie Foxx play the Fearless Hero (and dedicated father!) is amusing in its own right. Between this and Breach, is Chris Cooper on the (actual) FBI's payroll?
