About the Film
Academy Award® nominees Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum) reteam in this action-packed thriller. Damon stars as Roy Miller, a rogue U.S. Army officer who must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil before war escalates in an unstable region. Also starring Academy Award® nominees Greg Kinnear and Amy Ryan, Green Zone is “one hell of a thriller” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times).
“The Hurt Locker meets the Bourne Trilogy”
Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass have teamed up once more for Green Zone, a brilliant action war thriller that is as entertaining and thrilling as the Bourne Trilogy.
Matt Damon plays Chief Warrant Officer Ray Miller, who along with is squad is investigating areas believed to hold weapons of mass destruction. After three failed missions, Miller begins to question the intel they were given. High ranking officers quickly reject his claims, but after meeting CIA agent Martin Brown (Brendan Gleeson), Miller becomes convinced that there is something bigger going on.
Don’t listen to the critics, after reading what many of them had to say about this film, I wasn’t expecting much but this is one of the best films of the year. Many critics have slated the script as being clichéd and simple, but that didn’t spoil the film. It is intense, nicely paced and incredible. The acting is nothing but brilliant, Matt Damon, Brendan Gleeson, Jason Issac and Greg Kinnear all give the usual outstanding performances.
Overall it is a fantastic film, it won’t leave you on the edge of your seat, but it will keep you gripped to the screen throughout. Green Zone is one of Matt Damons best, besides the Bourne Trilogy. Although I thought the Hurt Locker was a brilliant film, I think this is better. Definitely worth a watch!
Not as good as Bourne films at all.
I strongly recommend renting first as its not what it is hyped up to be.
Don"t get me wrong its a good movie, but usually when they have to refer to related movies for support its not a good thing.
Plus I'm not a huge fan of the hole shaking camera effect, I think its meant to make it feel as if you are there, involved in the action but it fails on the fact that nobody's vision actually works this way, and after a while it just gets annoying and draws you away from the story.
Again the team of Greengrass and Damon have made a classic, the under tones are all real and shameful
