Action, Thriller, War
Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass, the team behind the last two Jason Bourne movies, again join forces for this Iraq war pic. Damon plays a soldier fed up with bad intelligence; when a townie tells him that a notorious general is secretly meeting in a house nearby, Damon takes matters into his own hands and becomes involved in all sorts of intrigue. Greengrass employs his shaky-cam techniques again—this time combining them with poor lighting. The result is something that’s literally hard to watch. Greg Kinnear plays a nasty Pentagon official who knows his government is lying. Damon works hard, but the shoddy script and spastic cameras let him down.

Indy Week Matt Damon attempts to redo the Iraq War in Green Zone Although a good movie can and should be made that investigates the political misinformation used to justify the war in Iraq, Green Zone feels like a dated political drama grounded in theatrics and buzzwords. by Neil Morris 03/12/2010
