The Kingdom is an action film that really made me think. On one hand, it tells the story of an elite FBI investigation team sent to Saudi Arabia. Terrorists have taken American lives, and their job is to figure out how and who. On the other hand, this is a personal story of revenge, because the team members lost a friend in the attack. For me, this story was more personal than politics, but the story mixes the two in an interesting way. The acting is good, the action is like some war films. There is a very intense battle scene near the end that is pretty wild. In the end, there is a pretty rough message.
