Jamie Foxx stars in this glossy movie, which excels with its breathtakingly tense action scenes.

Foxx is all bluster and heroism as he leads his team of crack FBI agents – Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman and Chris Cooper – on a secret mission in Saudi Arabia to find the terrorists who bombed a US residential complex, killing more than 100 oil company personnel.

There are heartfelt moments and a tangible sense of danger in a pounding thriller that blows you away, while also providing plenty of food for thought.
