    Very distracting camera work and political nonsense. The action is sparce and the tension even 'sparcer'.

    This had the potential to be a hard hitting Zero Dark Thirty type film, but ended up turning into a conspiracy story. The action was solid as Greengrass does, but the intrigue was cliched.

    Woefully poor effort that fails as an action movie (the trademark Greengrass jiggly camera work seems more a case of sheer desperation here than stylistic trait)  and is even more hopeless as a conspiracy thriller since we all know both the nature of the conspiracy and where it's all headed from the get-go, so there's nothing to figure out or puzzle over, and no ambiguity over aims and motivations as there would be in a typical Le Carre narrative (not…

    One helluva ride from start to finish, and while the style of the film makes you think this is Bourne in Iraq, there is a lot more intelligence going on, than in most action films. The American character traits are a little too black and white, so it's left the actors playing the major Iraqi roles who get a chance to shine with their characters and provide the shades of grey needed in this story of equivocation in war.

    Mis-marketed at the time of release (the ad guys would have you believe it was "Bourne Lite" from the same star and director of those films), "Green Zone" was "inspired" by the book "Imperial Life in the Emerald City", an expose on the background workings of pre-/post-invasion Iraq justification, with the film lifting characters from real-life individuals involved. It is a thriller involving various American functionaries, within the military and without, in cahoots about faked WMD data used as the…

    I'm really surprised this was made as late as 2010 as it seems like such a relic of the Bush administration in terms of the politics, characterization of Damon's rebellion, and the portrayal of the middle east conflict. Greengrass, in a way I'm sure is entirely accidental, has composed what feel like the perfect period piece of Bush era liberalism. My understanding is that this is treated as the black sheep of Greengrass' career, but this is far and away…

    while i do enthusiastically applaud the film's message of the usa govt being run by a pack of ignorant power+money hungry imbeciles, i honestly had a difficult time getting into a washington dc-bashing frame of mind. how is this possible, you ask? having to watch damon's character go off reservation for the entire movie then seeing this middle finger to all orders, endangering peers non-soldier still in uniform riding caravan made me a batshit crazy unfocused mess. i found myself…

    Jika saja dunia benar-benar memiliki sosok seperti Army Chief Warrant Roy Miller (Matt Damon) dalam kekisruhan mengenai senjata pemusnah massal (Weapon of Mass Destruction - WMD). Premis seorang patriot jujur yang menemukan kebenaran dan mempublikasikannya adalah sesuatu yang hanya ada di angan-angan dan juga di film ini, Green Zone.

    Film ini bukanlah sebuah dokumenter, tetapi didasarkan pada buku non-fiksi berjudul 'Imperial Life in the Emerald City' tulisan wartawan Washington Post bernama Rajiv Chandrasekaran. Buku itu bercerita tentang awal perang irak…

    Filme de guerra estilo 'Modern Warfare', com Matt Damon, sobre o envolvimento dos E.U.A. com as armas químicas no Iraque. O diretor abusa da ação, com o famoso recurso de câmera trêmula, com uma história que envolve política e história! O filme tem como pontos negativos as atuações, que são todas fracas e até mesmo o astro Matt Damon não está 100%. Entretanto, isso não estraga a experiencia do filme! Recomendado, principalmente para fãs de filmes de ação e de guerra!
