Hollywood Buzz #3

O que se diz lá fora acerca de THE KINGDOM:

«A slick, brutishly effective genre movie: Syriana for dummies.»
A.O. Scott, New York Times

«It wants us to feel as if we're watching something relevant when what's really going on is a slick excuse for efficient mayhem that's not half as smart as it would like to be.»
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

«[Director] Berg stages every ambush, gun battle and car chase as if his life depends on it. The Kingdom could have been a jingoistic CSI: Riyadh, and sometimes it is.»
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

«The picture is made with a degree of care, and what's surprising about it is the way [director] Berg actually resists making rah-rah jingoistic proclamations instead of relying on them.»
Stephanie Zacharek,

«Although burdened by far more procedure than plot, this Jamie Foxx vehicle -- which owes a great deal to the high-caliber style of its co-producer, Michael Mann -- is quietly jingoistic, in a way guaranteed to sell auds on the idea that what's truly American is about more than disputed foreign policy.»
John Anderson, Variety
