    This isn't Paul Greengrass' most received film, but I thought it was thirlling, well acted and explored some interesting ideas. It may lean on your political views a little bit, especially with how the story plays out near the end, but still an engaging film that I enjoyed.

    Far more engaging than I thought it would be, just not as tense or gripping as it needs to be. We know there are no WMD's, from both real life and the first 10 minutes informing us, making it problematic on a narrative level. Luckily, Paul Greengrass is as visceral as filmmakers come, ensuring it is at least a visual spectacle. A noble failure.

    I don't quite know how to sum Green Zone up. It's not a bad movie by any means, but I don't think I could recommend it to everyone either. Green Zone marks the third collaboration of director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon. The two of them are responsible for two of my favorite films, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. It's safe to say they know each other well. Greengrass has made his position on the 9/11 conspiracy crystal…

    Competently directed by Greengrass, enough to slot in seamlessly with the rest of his 21st century oeuvre. Matt Damon as with the Bourne films is well cast and certainly brings it.

    However, when you are willing to advertise your film with a blurring of the lines between fiction and reality, and present an already controversial story with a new level of misleading controversy, you'll be marked down. A lot of elements here don't work at all in terms of realism,…

    There was a lie, told and spread by the Bush Administration after the events of September 11, 2001, which was part of a military intervention in Iraq. This fine film by Paul Greengrass exposes some part of the conspiracy that carried out that same intervention, under false pretenses. Once again, the Greengrass/Damon partnership works nicely.

    The "Green Zone" I personally have to say that this movie was trying to aggravate me with shaking cam throughout the whole movie. Plus, some slow parts that will make anyone lose interest. The performances, directing were okay. The score is good. And the effects are outstanding. "I'm raving that this movies is so absurd it's unreal!!!"

    Matt Damon plays a U.S. officer looking for the truth in Iraq. When faulty information and the failure of covert operations uncover a different truth, he goes rogue, hoping to track down the truth on his own. I always have a thing about Paul Greengrass movies and that is that look and the feel of it, and what I mean about that is his movies always have that this is happen and it is bad like his other films and…

    Paul Greengrass is no doubt talented at amping up suspense and thrills, and in Green Zone he more or less succeeds. However, the dialogue is uninspiring and the characters are two-dimensional. I also feel that Greengrass doesn't go far enough into the conspiracy behind WMD (or lack thereof) in Iraq. It feels a bit safe. Green Zone builds to a nice conclusion and runs along at a good pace despite its 2hr running time, but something just didn't click for me. Jason Isaacs' facial hair should have won awards.

    And where exactly were those Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) that got America into Iraq? That’s the question this movie asks, and answers, in 115 minutes of non-stop military-action drama. Matt Damon is perfectly cast as officer Roy Miller on a one-man mission to find those WMD. I liked the use of Iraqi language and subtitles throughout to give it realism, although the subjective camerawork was a bit over done. If you like testosterone-fueled films, see it for sure. But don’t look for a romantic subplot. There’s only one minor female role, a WSJ reporter played by Amy Ryan, amid a sea of gun-toting guys.

    For a thriller set in the middle of a war zone there is a distinct lack of tension in Green Zone. Paul Greengrass mistakenly swaps well designed action set-pieces for shaky camera control with the aim of creating a realistic view of events on the ground. He has always been accused of overusing the handheld style and this film only helps to reinforce that idea.

    Greengrass plays it more like a secret agent film than a war based saga, the…
