Three Kings (BD)
While high-tech U.S. specialists fought, career soldier Archie Gates marked time in his Gulf War base camp. But now it’s time for action. Gates and three other restless Americans decide to raid a bunker holding a stash of gold stolen by the Iraqi army. Get in, get out, get rich, be back in time for lunch: the plan couldn’t be easier. George Clooney portrays Gates, Mark Wahlberg, Ice Cube and Spike Jonze are his fellow commandos and Nora Dunn plays an ambitious TV newswoman in this acclaimed film that by turns is a war movie, an antiwar movie, a surreal comedy and a powerful drama of human compassion – all written and directed with exhilarating style by David O. Russell . From start to finish, “Three Kings rules” (Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today).]]>

There are VAST quantities of better war related films than this.
Most likely only those people easily amused or lacking other films for comparison will like this film.
This film offers at best a patriotic kind of half (censored) for 'merica.
But I loved it. Intelligent writing, talented cast, engaging and thought-provoking story well executed. A good mix of action, adventure, comedy and drama. I could have done without the internal views of a bullet-pierced body, but now that I have the DVD, I know when it's coming and don't have to look.
Good commentary by David O. Russell.
even though this movie is somewhat old, the plot and story line was an excellent depiction of this skirmish. the characters were very good, but it was a little gory. what can be said about george clooney and mark wahlberg that has not been already said...they are just excellent actors in all of their characters in the movies. this one is no exception. an excellent movie.
I had seen this film several times prior to purchasing it. I was pretty young during Desert Storm, and it was too new to be taught in school, so a lot of aspects were new to me with this. I can not attest to any of these plot facts being true, but I am sure that some aspects of it are based on real scenarios and settings that soldiers would have faced. The precedence of stealing the Kuwaiti bullion and it being a fact, is also unknown to me. What I do know for sure, is this is a great, great film. The roles that each of these gentlemen play, is done remarkably well. I am a big time George Clooney fan, and this was an ultimate must purchase for me. Seeing him in such a commanding role and taking charge is certainly nice. The plot of the movie leaves you on the edge of you seat, heart-warmed, saddened, questioning, and blown away, all at once. I say that because of the way it portrays such a culturally significant thing. Like I said before, I can not attest to the accuracy of these facts, but it certainly makes you think about the way things are and the way they have been handled in the past! This is definitely a MUST SEE!
