I recently watched this movie, I thought it was one of the best movies I've seen in awhile, I'm just wondering what you think about it? Please discuss.

General Plot




The plot is fictional, but loosely inspired by the Riyadh compound bombings which took place on May 12, 2003, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and the Khobar Towers bombing which took place on June 26, 1996 at the Khobar housing complex.

After a deadly terrorist attack takes the lives of a hundred American civilians in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the FBI decides to take action by sending a team to capture those responsible but finds itself competing against rival intelligence agencies. Hot shot Special Agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) gets the task of a lifetime when he is picked to lead the elite group. With agents Janet Mayes (Jennifer Garner), Adam Leavitt (Jason Bateman), and Grant Sykes (Chris Cooper) at his side, he is confident that they will be able to infiltrate and bring down the terrorist cell within a week's time. Once there, however, the group finds themselves crippled by the disorienting culture, the scorching heat, and the dirty, labyrinthine politics. It isn't long before the foursome begins to doubt the reliability of their supposed informants and allies, which eventually leads them to question their own abilities. With local law enforcement more of a hindrance than help, Fleury finds unexpected aid from a sympathetic Saudi police unit commander (Ashraf Barhom). Soon, the FBI unit picks up the track, leading them to the inevitable showdown with the opposing force.

Powerful and shocking. Starts with a horrifying terrorist in Saudi Arabia on American oil company employees and families. Then follows a CSI:Saudia Arabia theme for awhile, as the terrorists prepare for another attack. Sobering finale.

the movie SUCKS i left the threater in the middle of the movie. i was actally looking foward to the shit. all i saw was war war and guns and blood and bad buildings.

seriouly people need to make better movies with a little comody? i only see blood movies...


I seriously doubt you left a theater in the middle of a movie that you paid to see, all you saw was the Primary SETTING of the movie which made a lot of sense according to the plot, which most seem to like than most other movies, I can say from being there the comedy made everyone in my theater laugh, and in my opinion this was a awesome movie compared to average...seriously
