The Kingdom

Wow! This movie is crazy and I loved it. Shot in a similar style to Bourne Ultimatum (ie try to make Matt motion sick) this is an insane thrill ride almost too big for the ‘big’ screen!

Things I liked:
– Jamie Foxx is the man! (if you don’t think so check out ‘Ray’ and ‘Collateral’…)
– the opening credits/history lesson/clever visual effects
– action with lots of guns
– the cut to the heart moments when Arabs and Americans see eye to eye
– the irony of the ending
– only 65 – 70% full of “how awesome is America” (based on a poll of the 4 car passengers of the way home)

Check it out!

NEWS FLASH
While Googling for a piccy I found the title for the upcoming Indiana Jones movie“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” – pretty long winded in my opinion. Harrison Ford is also the man!

We also saw shorts for a new Denzel Washington movie titled ‘American Gangster‘ (our own Russell Crowe is in it too) – it looks good. Denzel Washington is also the man!
