    I'm a big Greengrass fan, but this one was surprisingly shallow. He might as well have subtitled it "things I learned about the Iraq War by reading Time magazine in the dentist's office." 13 years 7 months ago

    Despite the involvement of director Paul Greengrass and actor Matt Damon, I don't think Green Zone should have been quite so marketed as a Bourne lookalike. Yes, it's an action picture with a strong conspiracy thread, but it's really closer to something like The Hurt Locker. Green Zone is about a U.S. soldier tasked with finding Weapons of Mass Destruction at the start of the Iraq war who comes up empty and starts asking too many questions. 10 years of hindsight and a look close to other Iraq "ripped from the headlines" movies may well have you wondering if it all really happened. It didn't. At least, not the conspiracy thriller elements, though the film is based on true events and the experiences of real WMD sniffers' experiences. The mix of real and fictional may not sit well with everyone, but it's an engaging story with good performances and impeccable production standards. There are a number of excellent moments concerning the Iraqi characters, but the film is mostly plot and not so much concerned with character. And I will admit the final action scene goes on too long. 8 years 11 months ago
