Enough action to keep things moving with a dramatic story that keeps up the tension. While I know fact and fiction have been mixed, just the idea this is based on true events is enough to make you think about what happens behind the scenes and how it affects millions.

Lots of action, lots of conspiracy, lots of politics, and a good cast make for a decent film. Based loosely on real events (and I really stress the word loosely), Damon plays a soldier trying to uncover the real reasons for the Iraq war. As always, the Damon-Greengrass pairing is extremely strong, and there's a pretty good supporting cast as well (though Amy Ryan isn't really given much to do). It's important to keep paying attention, a lot of stuff goes down and it's easy to get lost, but all in all, it's decent.

It's hard to imagine that something so horrific could be so true.

Green Zone review

Roy Miller (played by Matt Damon, whose character was based from Richard Gonzalez, an Army Chief Warrant Officer) discovers inaccurate intel from a mysterious source. Story revolves around this premise coupled with lots of gunfights, abduction and chases. It's loaded of background figures, lack of better character development, dizzying camerawork and swift editing makes this picture rushed and difficult to comprehend. If only the direction emphasized the plot in a more concise manner instead of the action sequences and has given introduction the the antagonist, then it could have been better. Screenplay was decent, nothing too memorable. Score was applicable and acting sincere. Overall it felt like viewing a tv series than a war flick. Green Zone emphasizes on politics, violence an...

"Green Zone" by Yojimbo

The Bourne team are once again reunited to tell the story of a US soldier investigating WMD sites who stumbles upon a conspiracy involving the government and an Iraqi general. The combination of Paul "shakycam" Greengrass and Matt Damon, playing his usual likeable action man of the people was always going to invite comparisons with their previous collaborations. It has the same formula of breathless action and convoluted conspiracies, but in this case, despite the larger themes involved the plot seems a lot more simplistic. Failing to address the role of corporate interests and the propaganda "war on terror", Green Zone prefers to point the finger at a faceless, corrupt minority operating outside the purview of the moral majority which always seemed to me to be a bit like providing invisi...

Zoned Out

Difficult to comprehend the point of Paul Greengrasses movie. As an Iraqi war movie, its a million miles behind Katherine Bigelows "The Hurt Locker with its murky action scenes and suspense free chase sequences. As a political statement, Green Zone is excessively heavy handed with sprinkles of liberal bias and a conspiracy theory that most people believe in anyway.
If you view this as the fourth Bourne movie (which it isn't, although some of the ads seemed to be pushing it that way), then you will be disappointed. This is a tepid, chaotically shot and strangely convoluted movie which is a dumb down version of real life events affecting America, the Bush administration and the ongoing military operation in Iraq.
A major disappointment and arguably a seriously misguided movie.
