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. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

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. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

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. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 22, 2006

Fresh: Three Kings is a dark, zesty, live-wire action-adventure comedy. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

a fun, war and unbiased movie

the first guy who reviewed this movie probably never knew Kuwait is a country so you better know what was going on during the Gulf war before watching ths film. Over all the movie was great, it certainly is worth the money.

Thank you Itunes!

Believe it or not i actually sent itunes a request that they put this on for sale and they did!! Yayy! This is one of Clooneys and Wahlbergs best and i am glad to be able to put this on my Ipod Touch!! Thanks again Itunes!

Excellent and Underappreciated

The actors are great and so is the story line. I wish this movie would get more credit and more publicity because I thought it was just awesome. Definitely worth watching.
