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
An empty movie with a message that delivers with nothing backing it up except for one shocking scene. However, the action scenes in this movie are top-notch.

This movie was just average up until the last ten seconds when they played the "we're terrorists to them so they're terrorists to us" card.

Peter Berg's The Kingdom is one of the most intense action films dealing with terrorism. Berg has got a terrific cast at his disposal and he delivers a film with flair and intrigue. The Kingdom is not a perfect film, but it does manage to be quite entertaining. The cast are good considering,. And I loved Chris Cooper (who is one of my favorite actors) in this film. Peter Berg has a tense, thrilling film that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Everyone in this film delivered good performances, and it was a very well made film. The plot was interesting and what was interesting about the plot, is that in some areas, especially the ending, it showed the thoughts of sides, the point of view of the American, and the point of view of the Arab extremists. There are also some good dramatic elements thrown into the story to make the film feel more realistic. I thought that this was one of the better films directed by Peter Berg. The Kingdom is a wonderful action film with touches of drama. The film is enthralling and intense. The attack at the start of the film is chilling and definitely makes you feel uneasy. For what it is, The Kingdom is a well plotted film that delivers a good story with good acting. This is a film that will definitely appeal to action fans everywhere, and is very different from most action film. A must see.
