A Quick Movie Review: "The Kingdom"

For a positive review of the current action adventure thriller, The Kingdom, see Megan Basham here.

I agree with her suggestion that behind all of the action is a fairly nuanced movie. The American FBI agents are not the bad guys in this movie -- though they make their share of mistakes. While the bad guys are the terrorists, also coming in for a drubbing are the spineless representatives at the U.S. State Department. Their portrayal -- more often accurate than not -- makes the movie worth the price of admission.
