The Kingdom

*Spoiler alert*

Last night kt and I rented The Kingdom from Redbox. I fell and in out of sleep towards the middle of the movie, due my sleeping pattern change (got 6 hours of sleep tuesday night, and 11 hours monday night). It was your typical, you did something to us, so we are going to do something to them. See Myth of Redemptive Violence.

An FBI Agent is killed by Muslims in Saudi Arabia, and the FBI sends a team to "investigate", and obviously it turns into a shootout.

The final lines of the movie were incredible.

The muslim grandfather, as he was dying from being shot by an FBI agent, told his grandson, "Don't worry, we are going to kill them all"
Meanwhile, it flashs back to a scene earlier in the movie, when the FBI learns that a muslim killed one of their agents, Jamie Fox's character comforts another FBI agent with the words, "Don't worry, we are going to kill them all."

The movie stressed a connection between the Middle East fighting for what they think is right, and the Western culture fighting for what they think is right.
