The Kingdom

Starring Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Chris Cooper, Jason Bateman, and Jeremy Piven (yeah I know what your thinking) The Kingdom provides a solid action movie with a message (notice it does not star Steven Seagal.) The movie is slow to start, but it is not for naught because it actually builds up to a strong climax. The movie is well written and acted, and actually incorporates some comedic relief. It helped ease you off at the right time and the action sequences made a stronger impact. The dialogue flows and exchanges between characters feel natural.

It is a gritty movie and the urban combat scenes rival the intensity of Black Hawk Down.

Well worth renting. (Enjoy the special features which includes a breakdown of two important scenes.)
