About the Movie
Greed. Compassion. Heroism. These three seemingly disparate human traits collide explosively in this unconventional, ironic, action-packed adventure. At the end of the Gulf War, a small group of American soldiers plots to steal a huge cache of gold reputedly hidden somewhere near their Iraqi desert base. After finding a map that they believe will lead them to the treasure, the men embark on a treacherous journey filled with unexpected events--a trip that dramatically forces them to confront their fears and flaws, while drastically altering their lives forever.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Three Kings takes a comfortable proletarian view of Desert Storm.
Fresh: The first Hollywood feature to take on the 1991 Gulf War, Three Kings does so in an impudently comic, stylistically aggressive and, finally, very thoughtful manner.
Fresh: David O. Russell's nervy attempt to reinvent the war movie and a further step in the evolution of an audacious and entertaining filmmaker.
Fresh: Three Kings is a dark, zesty, live-wire action-adventure comedy.
A wonderful motion picture. It takes you back to the end of the Gulf War, where the US Army is partying, Saddam Hussein is opressing, Kuwait gold is missing... Four soldiers are on a hunt for the gold, but not for the honorable reasons one might think.
A good movie if you weren't in the military
So many things happen that are far-fetched, but that's because I was in the military and know better. Overall, it was OK for a 3.99 rental. Don't expect the Golden Globe Award winning performances claimed in the description.
Not even worth pirating
If you want to know what's wrong with hollywood then this is a prime example. Total piece of garbage.
