Rating: 2/5 -- French director Jean-Jacques Annaud falls short in directing the action and, ironically, can't avoid stereotypes of the Arab world, especially in it's depiction of female characters. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Black Gold feels like it could have been made in the 1950s; we have come to expect a little more from our blockbusters. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- A far, far cry from "Lawrence of Arabia," but it has its diversions. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The screen is as wide as the universe, but the further you go in either direction the more you realise you have been there before. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The real problem is that Black Gold is rather dull, and much too long for comfort. Full Review

This ambitious desert epic may be a bit slow and confusing at the beginning, but I found the exciting second half of the movie worth waiting for. Full Review

Pedestrian storytelling and clunky dialogue leaves this would-be epic drama about a power struggle between feuding kingdoms in soon-to-be-oil-rich 1920s Arabia bogged down in the sand Full Review

Product Description:

The long-running feud between an emir and a sultan reignites following a surprising discovery about the strip of land that has been the source of so much contention in this drama from acclaimed director Jean-Jacques Annaud (THE NAME OF THE ROSE, SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET). Nesib (Antonio Banderas), emir of Hobeika, and Amar (Mark Strong), sultan of Salmaah, both claim ownership of the Yellow Belt, a vast area of land that separates the two men. Eventually, Nesib and Amar strike an agreement that seems to satisfy them both: In exchange for Nesib adopting Amar's sons Saleeh and Auda, the Yellow Belt will remain a no-man's-land. Years later, Saleeh has grown into a fierce warrior and dreams of reuniting with his father, while Auda remains content to spend his days reading and soaking up knowledge. Tensions begin to simmer between the two adversaries once again, however, when a Texas oil prospector reveals to Nesib that the Yellow Belt is brimming with black gold, and that selling it could mean untold riches. As Nesib grows obsessed with the idea of attaining unlimited wealth and power, the ultimate confrontation draws near.
