ConsNone

It must take guts to make a film like "Green Zone" during times like this. When so many soldiers are dying daily, anyone making objections against the war will most likely be accused of slandering the war, not supporting the soldiers and the country. No surprises then, that "Green Zone" was met...

“Welcome to the Boyzone”

published 17/09/2010

ProFor boys

ConsGood if you like that kind of thing

As you might think from the title this review is not about the popular boy band, Boyzone but about the movie Green Zone. I have called it Boy Zone as this, in my opinion is a complete and utter boy movie and not even the main role of Matt Damon could save this from being a really uninteresting...

“A good Iraq War film”

published 26/01/2011

ProRealitic, Good story, Good Acting

ConsLack of excitement (action)

I watched Green Zone for the first time yesterday and whilst I enjoyed it I didn’t find it spectacularly thrilling or exciting. In this department I think it lacks something. Having said that, there were disconnected scenes of suspense and excitement and these were enjoyable to watch. The film...

Manufacturer's product description

UNITED 93 director Paul Greengrass explores the aftermath of the Iraq invasion in this feature adaptation of author Rajiv Chandrasekaran's literary expose of the same name. A one-time Baghdad bureau chief of the Washington Post, Chandrasekaran was present as American forces attempted to set up a provisional government on the grounds surrounding former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's opulent palace. The resulting governing body, according to critics, existed in a bubble so far removed from the grim realities of the Iraq War that it failed to properly assess the needs of the people. In this fictional thriller set during the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad, director Greengrass and screenwriter Brian Helgeland use Chandrasekaran's novel as the foundation for the story of an officer who joins forces with a senior CIA officer to unearth evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.<BR><BR><BR>Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Matt Damon) is certain that Hussein has been stockpiling WMDs in the Iraqi desert, but in their race from one booby-trapped site to the next, they soon stumble across evidence of an elaborate cover up. As a result, the objective of their mission is inverted, and Miller realizes that operatives on both sides of the conflict are attempting to spin the story in their favor. Now, as Miller searches for answers made ever more elusive by covert and faulty intelligence, the truth becomes the most valuable weapon of all. Will those answers prove pivotal in clearing a rogue regime, or escalate the war in a region that grows increasingly unstable with each passing day? Amy Ryan co-stars as the New York Times foreign correspondent who travels to Iraq investigating the U.S. government's allegations about weapons of mass destruction, with Greg Kinnear appearing in the role of an additional CIA officer, and Antoni Corone essaying the role of a colonel. Brendan Gleeson rounds out the main cast for this Universal Pictures production.
