In the wake of a deadly attack on American forces in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, an FBI special agent, Ronald Fluery (Foxx), assembles a secret team of elite U.S. counter-terrorism experts to solve the brutal crime. Out of their element and with only five days to accomplish their mission, the team joins forces with Saudi counterparts to find the killer before he strikes again. As the unlikely allies unlock the secrets of the crime scene, they discover that they may be the perpetrator's next target. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.34:1 DVD exhibits multiple appearances, with a desaturated look that nicely matches the gruesome, gritty nature of the story in Saudi Arabia and a more naturally saturated, vibrant image in the United States. The color scheme is drab, dominated by hues of brown and yellow. Resolution is generally quite good, with sharp details and nicely rendered fine textures. Contrast is balanced nicely and details in the brightest whites and darkest blacks are transferred well. Black levels are acceptably deep, helping make the image look impressive. Pixel breakup can be noticed at times, and edge enhancement is recognizable on the higher contrast transitions. (Danny Richelieu)
