“The Kingdom”, an even split

the kingdom

With Michael Mann producing and Peter Berg directing my expectations were high for “The Kingdom” a polite bit of new world fantasy that follows four FBI agents into the toughest areas of Saudi Arabia to find the terrorist that has attacked an oil compound housing hundreds of American workers and their families. It isn’t the initial attack that brutalizes you but the self seriousness this action film takes in it’s enjoyable but awkward groping around to find relevance in entertainment. It partially succeeds.
