||Jamie Foxx. Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Ashraf Barhom, Jeremy Piven, Richard Jenkins, Kyle Chandler
||An American compound in Riyadh is attacked by terrorists disguised as police, and so an FBI team is dispatched and given five days to investigate the crime. As they get closer to finding the perpetrators they and the Saudi policemen who are helping them find themselves under threat.
||A lot of gunfire and explosions both initially and later in the tale. Some brutal interrogation by the Saudi military. Time on the road in black four by fours in close convoy (always impressive). A lot of arguments as the Saudis try to limit the activities of the FBI, particularly since one of them is female.
||Apparently cut down from an original two and a half hours by Universal. I have been to Saudi and found the oppressive and obstructive atmosphere quite realistic. It was not much liked by the critics, but the general public who saw it thought it was OK. If you like action films worth a view.
