Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: I]t fails in its attempt to be a serious drama with important things to say about the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East.

- Alonso Duralde, MSNBC, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: Of this fall's post-9/11, Iraq-conscious lineup, The Kingdom may be the most unobjectionable, accessible and, ultimately, most entertaining.

- Brandon Fibbs, Colorado Springs Gazette, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: The movie pretends to be a dramatic exploration of the gulf of mutual suspicion that has grown from the oil alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia. In the most superficial way imaginable, it does that.

- Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Friday, September 28, 2007

I was just really unimpressed with this, there wasn't anything for me to really find intriguing. Nothing was really above average, even the plot was just dull. It looks very much like a Michael Mann film, maybe if he just would've directed it then it could've gone somewhere.
