Earlier this year we were surprises to hear the Universal would be pushing The Kingdom until after this summer considering that screening reports claimed the film was great. Now, with the film's release only a month out, a new screening report has surfaced and it is well, not as positive as the first ones we read.

Wishy Washy The Kingdom Screening Report

The good people at AICN have received a new screening report for The Kingdom that claims the film is decent.

There were some white-knuckle moments and some ham-fisted ones as well. I don't know if it's just me or if there is controversy surrounding the fact that this is essentially a clash between western and Arab forces in an essentially fictional story. I'll get to the part of it being based on truth shortly, don't flame out on me yet. I didn't personally find anything offensive or controversial, but then again I don't think I've ever seen a movie that has offended me personally.

Peter Berg is something of an everyman's renaissance man. Very Bad Things was just one long dead hooker joke, but The Rundown and Friday Night Lights were both fun times at the cinema. He seems to be slowly evolving into a force to be reckoned with. I bet his next movie or maybe the movie after that will be his "Holy Shit" movie. That's right, the illiterate brother of Corky Romano is a good director.

The report then goes on to some spoilers including added information on Bateman's character. Tread carefully here.

The Kingdom opens to theatres on September 28th.
