The Kingdom

(USA/Germany, 2007, 109 minutes)

After a terrorist attack on an American residential compound in Saudi Arabia, an FBI investigative team sent in against both government's wishes attempts to find out who did it with the help of a Saudi cop. Intriguing but not entirely successful attempt at fashioning a good-guys vs. bad-guys action thriller from the current headlines, more thoughtful than might be expected and impeccably handled.
