The Kingdom (Dir. Peter Berg) (2007): Oscar® winners Jamie Foxx and Chris Cooper team up with Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman to ignite the screen in The Kingdom a high-intensity action thriller.
After a deadly terrorist attack in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, takes the lives of many innocent American civilians, the FBI decides to take action by sending a team to capture those responsible. Hot shot Special Agent Ronald Fluery (Jamie Foxx) gets the task of a lifetime when he is picked to lead the elite group into conflict. With agents Janet Mayes, (Jennifer Garner), Adam Leavitt, (Jason Bateman), and Grant Sykes, (Chris Cooper), at his side, Fluery 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, Fluery finds unexpected aid from a sympathetic Saudi police captain. Soon, the FBI unit picks up the track, leading them to the inevitable showdown with the opposing force.
Based on the Riyadh compound bombings which took place on May 12, 2003, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Jarhead (Dir. Sam Mendes) (2005): Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and Jake Gyllenhaal star in this critically acclaimed, brilliantly unconventional war story from Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes.
Jarhead (the self-imposed moniker of the Marines) follows Swoff (Gyllenhaal) from a sobering stint in boot camp to active duty, where he sports a sniper rifle through Middle East deserts that provide no cover from the heat or Iraqi soldiers. Swoff and his fellow Marines sustain themselves with sardonic humanity and wicked comedy on blazing desert fields in a country they don't understand against an enemy they can't see for a cause they don't fully grasp.
