Movie synopsis
David O. Russell makes his entry into the major studio big leagues with the electric war dramedy THREE KINGS. The politically charged script, based on a fictional story by John Ridley, is a sly reworking of KELLY'S HEROES, and concerns four Gulf War soldiers who discover a map that may lead to an enormous stash of gold bullion. Russell gives actors George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Ice Cube, and Spike Jonze a chance to shine, in roles that step outside the usual cinematic clich�s and enable them to create human, believable characters, resulting in one of 1999's most exciting, original, and underrated motion pictures.

Shows what Modern War Really is

It's hard to really adequately describe this movie. Let me try.

For starters, in spite of the advertisements, it's not merely a remake of "Kelly's Heroes". Yes, we are in a postwar situation, where a bunch of Americans are trying to "recover" gold stolen by the enemy, but that's the end of the similarities.

"Three Kings" does an excellent job of showing just how gonzo modern warfare has become. You've got unemployed reservists going to the Middle East for kicks fighting Saddam, who uses gas attacks, electric shock torture and other atrocities to fight the rebels. Thrown in the mix are a U.S.-educated Iraqi whose businesses were destroyed by the Americans, a bunch of rebels and refugees living in bunkers, a CNN-type correspondent facing the threat of younger reporters, and Mark Wahlberg's character finding a cell phone in the Iraqi bunker and using it to call his wife in the U.S.

The movie is extremely funny at times, graphically violent at times, but always on target. It provides a lot of insight into how non-Americans view the U.S. I cannot think of another major movie which showed people in a third-world country as modern people without patronizing. Even the soldiers shooting at our heros, gassing the refugees, and torturing Mark Wahlberg's character are shown as human beings.

Somehow this movie got lost last year amongst all the hype for "American Beauty". "Three Kings" looks to have much more staying power. George Clooney continues to shine in yet another under-appreciated performance. For somebody with a Hollywood legacy, he really seems to have pushed some of the wrong buttons in Hollywood. I cannot think of any other explanation for why he has yet to achieve the acclaim his performances deserve.

Fasten your seat belts, this movie rocks

An excellent action movie filled with thrills & spills! George clooney is the lead & does a great job. His co stars also contribute with great performances. The story line is a solid scenario & is fast paced with action. Their are times when you will be at the edge of your seat in the many action scenes. This is one movie that you will not regret buying.

Three Kings

The reason that I picked this movie is that Geoge Clooney and Mark Wahlberg are in it. Mark Wahlberg's movies are great to watch. There is a lot of wxcitement in them. George Clooney's movies are excellent. He potrays a lot of characters in his movies. He's been in romantic movies and action/drama picutes. I've never seen Ice Cube in any movies. This should be an interesting movie.

Three Kings

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

A small group of adventurous American soldiers in Iraq at the end of the Gulf War are determined to steal a huge cache of gold reputed to be hidden somewhere near their desert base. Finding a map they believe will take them to the gold, they embark on a journey that leads to unexpected discoveries, enabling them to rise to a heroic challenge that drastically changes their lives. This movie is extremely funny at times, graphically violent at times, but always on target. A very intelligent script make this a must see movie.

three kings

great movie with great leading role actors. some very emotional war scenes in this dealing with the affects of war on civilians. funny movie at times, but it really paints a decent picture about war. especially a war where not even the american troops know why they are fighting, or whom. go see it, you wont be dissappointed in the least bit.
