The Kingdom

The Kingdom

Just back from watching the premier screening of The Kingdom at KLCC. Thanks to my friend Keong for the tickets. It was a terrorism movie involving both World #1 Oil Producer – Saudi Arabia and World #1 Oil Consumer – United States. An 18SG movie, however some idiot parents still brought their children which is merely 3-5 years old in and watched together. Worst still they did not even control their this kid properly and kept making noise. Until at one point where it really got onto our nerves and we had to shout at them! Then only they told their kid to shutup! WTF…bringing a child which is that small and doesn’t even care to take care of them, faggots!

Anyway, back to the movie…*minor spoiler ahead*

The story began when a group of terrorists in Saudi Arabia denoted a series of bombing inside a Western housing compound in Riyadh which caused massive casualties including an FBI Special Agent, which led to FBI Special Agent Ronald Fleury and 4 other Special Agent to sneak to Saudi Arabia to investigate the man behind this havoc. I personally thought Jamie Foxx very suitable on this character…

The storyline though was normal also predictable on who and who will die, who and who were the traitor or inside man, still great points were given to the gun fighting scenes. Everything were so realistic, gun sound, effects and also the blood splashing (thanks for not having it censored), might not suitable for those people who are against violence and gore. Talk about gore, there was one scene at the end there when one of the Special Agent were captured by the terrorists and was almost being cut off the head, reminds me of a video which i saw before, ewwwww, after i saw that video, i really had a hard time recovering myself…

With the great gun fighting scenes, and those explosive effects, regardless of those fakeness which i think all of the gun fighting scene has it (main actors usually can’t die although they are totally surrounded by enemy with guns shooting at them from everywhere, but they can kill everyone of them in few shots), i rate this movie 8/10.
