(Director) Peter Berg taps into an American Consciousness that has become filled with concern over the Middle East.
The Feds are called into investigate after a brutal attack takes place involving American Civilians living in a compound in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh.
Of course the bureau is held back by red tape and a band of locals who wonâ€™t just throw out the red carpet for American Forces.
The film unfortunately never decides which direction it wants to go in.
Moments that show a possibility of the films relevance and intelligence are soon followed by clips of high octane action that do not move the movie forward.
Starring Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner

4/26/2012 - Ting Tings 'Sounds From Nowheresville' CD Review Borrowed from SPIN and because I hated the first album I love hearing about a terrible second album.
1/21/2008 - Charlie Wilson’s War - Movie Review This film is based on true events that revolve around a U.S. official and his efforts to prevent the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan.
Charlie Wilson loved whiskey and he loved women, but they didn’t stop him from accomplishing something that should have been impossible

11/21/2007 - American Ganster Movie Review Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe give their usual brilliant performances, but the movie falls a bit short. Crowe's character is given too much screen time and the masterful mind of a drug lord is not explored enough. American Gangster is a good film but you leave feeling like one of Lucas's junkies, desiring a bit more.
11/20/2007 - Zookeeper - 'Become All Things' Become All Things is a nice album of piano-bar sing alongs with deep mood swings. It will not go down as one of the best of 2007, or live up to the hype, but the songs shoud find a nice place on your IPOD
10/26/2007 - Dropkick Murphys - 'The Meanest Of Times' Despite gaining mainstream exposure on last year's soundtrack to 'The Departed' as well as singing the National Anthem (repeatedly) for The Boston Red Sox, The Dropkick Murphys haven't softened their rough edges
