2007′s, The Kingdom, was on TV last night and I was glued to the TV (a rare site) because my favorite part was on. I remember it so vividly from when I first saw it a few years ago and every time since. The scene or sequence I’m referring to is the entire chase that happens in and around the climax where Jason Bateman’s character is kidnapped and his team members have to chase after his captors through hostile territory and get him back. The stakes are so high: they know if they lose site of the vehicle ahead, their friend will likely die. And the emotional tension is so deep because of over an hour of character development in which the audience grows to really like every member of the team. The pace is so quick and the cinematography is so stunning that I really feel like I’m part of the effort to free this guy. The acting is pretty good too. This movie got bad reviews but mostly because of it’s supposed political agenda. I like it, and love watching the action sequences again and again because I always get so emotionally involved. Check it out if you haven’t seen it.
