I'm between 2 and 3 stars, so I'll be generous. It appears the FBI agents are on a very personal mission after losing one of their own to a terrorist attack. While they have to jump through hoops, both at home and abroad, you never buy into the motive. The few things we know about the fallen agent are so lightly touched on, we never feel the emotion driving the main characters. Garner was nothing short of distracting as a highly trained FBI agent. Once I was able to look past her over inflated lips that Agelina Jolie has become so famous for, I could not help but be annoyed by her constant display of emotion complete with sighs and tears. I'm sorry but this IS NOT FBI material. In the spirit of fairness, she did redeem herself in the combat scene, but alas it was too late, my patience had worn thin. Overall the "we are all the same...we are just defending different values" message was thrown at us rather than being realized by us. Thereby leaving us with that uncomfortable feeling that we have been force fed with a silver spoon that could use a little polishing.
This is a great movie.It brings back memories from when I was in the military.It shows how we feel after sumthing happens to us.Yet it also shows the realistic threat of how others feel about us.Its puts both feeling into an intense action pack thrill ride.
A confusing mess. You never get a real reason as to what they are going to accomplish traveling to the Kingdom. This movie shows that you can have good actors all playing very bad roles. They don't fit in the role and therefore dull interactions with each other. The action scenes are terrific and very well done. If you are willing to take short naps and subtract plot and acting from the viewing, it's okay. The ending of the movie tries to be philosophical in a very fabricated way. You just don't buy it.
Good movie,the kind that wants to remind you that there are other "worlds" out there besides yours - other customs, other principles, other religions...tha t produce a great human drama when they collide.I liked the fact that it tries to make things gray instead of black and white.The good guys-bad guys action remains,keeps you in suspense.But the idea is that the seed of evil and hate can be powerful and arise in anybody, no matter the nationality. And being prejudice and hateful can only bring on more drama.
