The Kingdom review online
The Kingdom has received a good and very early review online. It seems that the film is a balanced and very real look at terrorism as well as providing strong and believable characters for Americans and Arabs alike.
If you can read through some of the shock tactics of the review, you can find that they think that the film is really good and that Peter Berg has done an excellent job of directing the film. Not only that, but they are full of praise for the script too. Overall it sounds as though this is an excellent film.
Now we just have to wait to see it ourselves. You can read the full review over at AICN.
The Kingdom is directed by Peter Berg and written by Matthew Michael Carnahan (brother of Joe). It tells the story of an American base located within an Arab country that is bombed by terrorists. Investigative teams from the U.S. try to work with the local Government to discover who committed the crime and hunt them down. The film stars Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Chris Cooper and Jeremy Piven.
I'm a big fan of Peter Berg, and a new found fan of the Carnahan brothers, and I was hoping that this film was going to turn out well. Here's hoping that the reviewer is spot on. From what we've seen in the trailers and from the subject matter, it does look an intense film.
