The Kingdom

Turned out to be a pleasant surprise of an entertainer. The premise is classic Hollywood - well-toned, well-trained, well-cocky FBI investigators head deep into enemy territory in Saudi Arabia to find the truth about some killings. Despite the very basic plot, Peter Berg (the cocky doctor from Chicago Hope!) manages to deliver 2 hours of frenetic action.

Replace the FBI crowd with the Ultimates and you would have a believable and more enjoyable film. As in you now have a magical reason why people can get thrown around and not die!
