Three Kings is a satirical war film based around a gold heist that took place during the 1991 iraqui uprising against Saddam Hussein following the end of the Gulf war.  The film stars George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Ice Cube and Spike Jonze.  The film opens at an American war camp.  We are shown the daily lives of these men out in the dessert.  The main characters find a map in an iraqui mans butt and use it to go find all of saddams hidden gold in bunkers.  Along the way though they get sidetracked by the people they meet and decide to help save them by getting them across the Iranian border instead of just stealing all the gold. They are successful in saving the people and the gold is returned back to Kuwait.. with a few missing. All in all i really enjoyed this movie, it gave me a new perspective on how the war was fought.
