The Kingdom

We saw The Kingdom yesterday and we both recommend it highly. The story is that 4 FBI agents go to Saudi Arabia to investigate a terrorist attack on an American compound of oil workers and their families. They go against orders from the State Dept. and only with the permission of the reigning Saudi prince. Their movements and actions are highly restricted, and they are constantly surrounded by their Saudi military counterparts. See the guy in the khaki uniform in the front of the picture above? He is their babysitter and minder. I can't remember his real name, but he is terrific and worth the price of admission alone. The whole cast is very good and the story is well told and extremely frightening. In fact, I had a bad dream after seeing it last night. But if you like action/adventure films, this is for you.
