Movie Review of "The Kingdom"

Lynn and I went and saw The Kingdom last night. This was one of those few movies that when you see the preview, you know you have to go see this movie. I was not disappointed. It's part CSI and part war on terror. Jamie Foxx plays a FBI agent that leads a special agent team over to Saudi Arabia after a terrorist attack inside a compound for US workers. While over there, the agents are hamstrung by Muslim culture and rules telling them what they can and cannot investigate. Eventually the team is allowed to dig a little deeper thoughout the movie and they end up being targets themselves for jihadist terrorists. It's an action packed movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat for the whole movie. It also has a political kinda ending. I won't spoil it. You should go see the movie for yourselves.
