_Three Kings_ is not my usual sort of thing, I watched it on the suggestion of a complete stranger, and I don’t know that I’ll ever watch it again. But I **do** think that it’s a good movie, so I’m going to pass that buck and say, that those of you who like me had never seen this nearly twenty year old movie, give it a chance.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
A very good movie, based on true events. It’s good to see some real humanity still exist today.
Fine movie set in the aftermath of the 1991 “Gulf War”.
I remember the 1991 Gulf War well, and in fact visited the area in late 1991. After looking at the “extras” on the DVD version of Three Kings, you realize how accurate the movie is, having used USA veterans as consultants, and some of the extras were actually Guld War refugees. I rate it “8” of “10”.
The movie is action-packed and well-acted. The only thing that threw me off a bit was the sometimes strange mixture of humor and tragedy – people graphically getting killed in one scene, and characters being in humorous situations the next. Still, it is an entertaining movie overall, and gives a great glimpse of what the Gulf War was all about.
The Art of trailer misdirection
I’ve just watched this film two years after umming and arring about going to see it at the flicks when it was released. Two years ago I stayed in with a pizza thinking that George Clooney looking gritty with a load of gold wouldn’t be up to much. Then friends started to talk about it quite positively without really saying much about the content. Then I saw it in a buy 2 get 1 free sale at HMV, and now I know that I needn’t have to gone through all the bother of digesting a pizza.
I should also add that I’m seeing this after 11/9/2001 and that even with the new perspective world events have cast over films with themes involving the US and the middle East, this film stands up very well. A positive portrayal of Islam, a positive portrayal of the people of Iraq, a sort-of-positive portrayal of the US army abroad, hell even a sympathetic portrayal of a lapdog of Saddam (I’m kind of reminded of Happiness for the sheer taboo-bustingness of this portrayal).
The plot is easy on the mind, the acting is satisfactory, the ending is purest Hollywood and the cinematography is sub-Lawrence of Arabia despite having access to a perfectly adequate desert. What makes this movie stand out is how at ease it is with its subject matter; letting comedy mix with the sort of serious politics that make a lot of people pick their words with great care.
The misleading trailer for this film fits in perfectly with what it’s trying to achieve. Pretending to a be a gung-ho, guns and gold, go gettum boys film, it gets those into the cinema who need to hear its message not just those who want to hear. It attempts to slip complex issues through just about all the unthinking jingoism that lingers outside movie theatres on a regular basis and for that I salute it.
