    The first hour is engrossing and bold (even if the subject is dry at times), a much more balanced and nimble presentation of the Iraq War than THE HURT LOCKER. It explores big complicated politics with as much energy and as much success as it explores the smaller passions, violence, betrayals of the war. Greengrass and Damon make a very natural, effective team, and each seems to cover for the others' main weaknesses.

    But the last act squanders that promise…

    A pretty good film. Very tense and fast-paced, some gorgeous shots of warfare and jam-packed with a lot of information. And I want to emphasize that, because I think it's the aspect of the movie that either draws you in or pushes you away.

    I've followed the Iraq situation for a while from the media, seen some documentaries, series, I've read some books and I think I have an above average grasp of the facts and the timeline of the…

    This movie was put on the inevitable hit list of those continuing to rationalize the fabricated intelligence we accepted as a justification to raid Iraq. Indeed, truth tends to be war's first casualty. Yes, the film too is fiction, uses implausible long-shots and implausibly puts one man in the middle of all the action. It is a thriller, not a documentary. But the facts ever present and the essence of the neocon injustices have by now been made very evident.

    Paul Greengrass directs this war thriller centred around the search for weapons of mass destruction. It stars Matt Damon as a US Army officer responsible for searching sites given to him by intelligence for the weapons. After discovering the intelligence is bad, he goes rogue and conducts his own search from his own source of intelligence.

    This is a film that, as I recall, was highly rated by the critics and public alike. Unfortunately, I just didn't get along with…

    Technically good (Greengrass loves the shaky cam) but without any substance. The action scene and climax is way too long.

    Rewind 2003 and you'll remember that America had toppled Saddam's Republican Guard in Iraq and was able to secure most of the city of Baghdad within a few months so that the search for WMDs could begin. Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller is the head of a unit that is responsible for investigating WMD sites in and around Baghdad. After three different sites have come up empty Miller begins to question the reliability of the intelligence reports that are being…

    I don't have any complaints about this movie, but I don't have any praises for it either. It only exists.

    Green Zone is not an Anti-American film, but it certainly does not make the US look good. Although it is a fictional story about the US involvement in Iraq, it highlights the fact that the United States went to war with Iraq looking for weapons of mass destruction and came up empty. Matt Damon stars as Chief Officer Roy Miller, who leads his ground forces through searches and seizures of areas in Iraq that has been given to them through…

    Paul Greengrass has accumulated quite some action credibility thanks to his entries in the Bourne franchise (Ultimate and Supremacy), although I preferred United 93 and Bloody Sunday, which used his raw, documentary style with his famous shakycam in more interesting stories. Here he is again working with Matt Damon in a story about the failed search for WMDs in Iraq after the invasion. Unfortunately, telling a story with a large scope does not seem to fit him as well, and…

    Patīk man Grīngrāsa filmas un brīžiem šķiet, ka visvairāk tieši tās, kuras nav no Borna universa. Šī nav uzņēmums. Vienīgi atrisinājums šķita pārāk tiešs un provokatīvs.
