    A very interesting movie about the US misadventure into Iraq during the beginning of the campaign. Matt Damon plays a soldier in charge of a unit seeking the alleged WMDs that were the given rationale for invading Iraq, yet they are nowhere to be found. Soon Damon starts budding heads with corrupt superiors who have a agenda that is quite sinister.

    Decent thriller about the whole WMD mess. I wonder if any of this is true?

    Usually when I decide to rewatch films I try to make sure that I've allowed sufficient time to pass between the rewatch and the previous watch. If I don't, then chance are I remember so much of the film that the rewatch is kind of useless as I already know everything that is going to happen. I've seen Green Zone before but I remembered virtually nothing about it. One of the Bourne films was on TV the other day and…

    The first R-rated movie I didn't have to sneak in to. Literally the only thing I remember about it.

    Well intentioned and well directed, Green Zone keeps a solid pace with the trademarked Greengrass look and feel. The pace is both its strength and its problem. Although the plot develops and continues at a rate that allows the audience to both keep up and stay engaged, everything exists to serve that plot and its agenda and that includes characters and their relationships. There isn't a moment for building interesting characters or motivations and those are the things that set this apart from similarly lean Iraq/Afghanistan films like Katheryn Bigelows' two Oscar baiting efforts.

    I'm pretty much down the middle with this one. While I like all the components, ideas, and agree with the concept, I was never really engaged. Unless you're really into pseudo war intrigue with an agenda, I'd stay away.

    An attempt to make sense of the war on terror, possible leftist bias doesn't stop adequate action sequences.

    the story of how , allegedly, the us people figured out the obvious, that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

    Well executed, but naive and overly political.

    “How does someone like you write something that's not true?”

    About 10-15 minutes into Green Zone, a soldier - after discovering that the supposed weapon storage was false - says: “this doesn't look like weapons of mass-destruction” and encapsulates the entire movie. The problem is that the one little line that's a blatantly obvious gibe to USA:s search for weapons of mass-destruction in Iraq tells exactly what the rest of the movie will be about. What then follows in the…

    Muitas vezes o filme faz história. Nesse caso a história virou filme. Tem tudo menos ficção.

    Well crafted storytelling. Feels important. Based on a true story it tells the tale of a US GI looking for WMD's in Bagdad. When he discovers that there are no WMD's, he goes on a mission to prove it.
