In the aftermath of a deadly attack on American forces in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, diplomats are slow to act, but meanwhile, FBI special agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) assembles a secret team of U.S. counter-terrorism investigators to enter the city and find the criminal behind what has quickly become an international incident. The crew, however, finds their attempt to capture the perpetrators stalled by bureaucracy and their presence unwelcome. Desperate to gain the trust they need to accomplish their mission in just five days, the team enlists the aid of a Saudi Arabian police officer (Ashraf Barhoum), but as the agents infiltrate the dark and complex world of the Saudi crime scene, they find that the perpetrator's next target may be them. Directed by Peter Berg, The Kingdom also stars Jennifer Garner, Chris Cooper, and Jason Bateman. Cammila Collar, Rovi

I remember when The Kingdom was released, and the cast (Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner among many) and director (Peter Berg, of Very Bad Things and Friday Night Lights) intrigued me. Then, the movie came and went from the theaters, and I never heard much of it.
It's likely that a movie about terrorism in the Middle East isn't for everyone, and certainly some pretty horrific scenes and themes. But it's really a well put together action film, and is a very well done movie. The actors are all good - Jason Bateman is largely there for comic relief, but his character takes on a critical role towards the end and he plays it quite well.
The film isn't perfect, of course -- it alludes to deeper character studies but don't expand on them enough, and the final scene is predicated on a silly deus ex machina. But it's a GOOD film and if you are in the mood for a quality action film, you can (and probably often will) do a lot worse than The Kingdom.
