This page has additional observations, other than the ones noted in the main review.
FBI agents fly to Riyadh to investigate a terror attack on American citizens on Saudi soil.
- The last action set piece; the climax is well shot and has bombs exploding on the highway, cars tumbling and rolling like roulette wheels, and an all out fire fight with automatic weapons and rocket launchers running wild.
- Jennifer Garner’s presence as a woman in an all male Islamic society is delineated well in two scenes; one where she is asked to cover her chest before meeting the Saudi prince, and two when the Saudi police officer has a tough time telling her that she would not be invited to the palace for an official meeting as that is an all male preserve
What did not
- The simplistic explanation at the beginning of the film about the reasons behind the conflict in the Kingdom
- Why should other nations and their people bar America, be depicted as ineffectual and possibly unjust? But is one asking for too much?
