Three Kings

March 1991; the Iraqi Desert in the aftermath of Desert Storm. Four American soldiers discover a map reputedly leading to a huge cache of gold stolen by Saddam Hussein from Kuwait and hidden somewhere near their desert base. The plan is simple; the group will secretly leave at dawn, retrieve the gold and be back by lunch. A great plan in theory. Action and dark comedy are mixed in this offbeat war drama. George Clooney heads a good cast.
