  • Matthew Michael Carnahan's caffeinated script isn't much concerned with balance, but it gets some anyway, from the resonant images of culture clash that Berg catches on the fly and a remarkable performance from Ashraf Barhom. show more

  • The Kingdom comes down to a police procedural, and one whose procedures prove none too interesting. show more

  • Ultimately, this jingo-bingo action thriller squarely hits its target, then delivers a delayed-action message contrary to everything that has preceded it. Berg heroizes the plucky Americans, but in the closing scenes of his ripping action flick, sucker-punches them. It's as if this populist Syriana frags itself. show more

    There is a little for everyone in this film as long as you keep an open mind. I will never look at an old beat up tea pot in the same way after his thoughts.
