Remarkable sequence. Thanks for posting on this.... visually that was impressive. Makes me wonder how much more I would have gained from History class if it had been presented in this way.

That's about as dumbed down a history of Saudi-US relations as you could possibly get.

@garrett - if this was the format for your history classes, I think you wouldn't learn much!

Looks outstanding nice but the movie itself is supposed to be a very straight and dumb action movie. But maybe I should have a look on it on DVD.

The beginning wasn't that interesting, graphics wise, but it starts doing some cool statistical graphics at 2:40 for those of you who want to skip to the good stuff.

This may be a stretch, but the instant this title sequence began I thought: They cribbed the style from this motion graphic/video by Knife Party:
