    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.

    A really enjoyable modern war film from Paul Greengrass. I wanted more out of Holly from the Office's character but there doesn't seem to be a place for interesting female characters in modern blockbusters.

    A noble effort, but despite the considerable talents of its cast and crew, Green Zone is too often bogged down by a weak leave-nothing-to-the-imagination screenplay. While most of the dialogue scenes fall flat, Greengrass' skillful camerawork and action choreography make for a gripping final act. It's just a shame the script didn't get the some polish that the editing did.

    I didn't care for this one all that much. Damon is alright but the film doesn't tell the most interesting of stories.

    Green Zone's half hearted attempts at making its points leaves it resembling little more than an entertaining movie.

    A forgotten about film, but something I was curious to revisit after seeing Greengrass's latest masterpiece in "Captain Phillips" since I had, well, forgotten about it. It's easy to see why it was neglected: it's a war film more focused on being a popcorn thriller with an intellectual base than a pro or anti conflict statement.

    After the admirably apolitical The Hurt Locker comes the intensely political Green Zone, a story about the lies perpetuated by the US military machine regarding the existence of WMDs in Iraq and the efforts of one front-line grunt (who bears a striking resemblance to Matt Damon) to expose the truth. The result is a mixed bag of high tension, the destruction thereof and a blurring of the lines between fact and fiction.

    Hand held camera work is Paul Greengrass' strength…

    It might be Greengrass' weakest film, but it still is action packed and well directed enough to be interesting filmmaking.
