Intel War Games

Movie Review: "Green Zone" (2010)

Director Paul Greengrass reunites with leading actor Matt Damon performing fully-geared-up to war-conspiracy exposing Chief Captain Miller of U.S. military special forces, telling the story of the first months in the Iraq invasion in March 2003, which should have been clean-cut mission operatives, but then had been produced stretched tours for thousand of U.S. American army-signing citizens over six years until January 1st 2009 give-back regarding the title-given governmental capital area in the eastern parts of Baghdad to make sense out of an hostile take-over based on an hyper-theoretical atomic threat for the western hemisphere through the Iraqi government, led by already-deceased former-president Saddam Hussein (1937-2006), when "Green Zone" presents itself as one of most ambitious high-scale modern warfare film production eve- conceived by Hollywood's dream-factory represented by distributor Universal Pictures associated with driving completion-forces by London-based production company "Working Title" represented by managing producers Eric Fellner & Tim Bevan, who are able to raise an 100-Million-Dollar production budget, which gets put entirely into realistic war zone scenarios paired with highly-advanced military equipment and thriller elements-striving military internal affair conspiracy of forging mission Intel for profitable home-based business ventures, especially recalling "Jarhead" movie directed by Sam Mendes in season 2004/2005 in thematically-scratched oil resources of this middle eastern region, when Director Paul Greengrass focuses on Matt Damon's character in bringing order in the chaotically-received high-standard 35mm handheld cinematography by lighting cameraman Barry Ackroyd, whose peaked body of work remains unsurprisingly emotional distant after Kathryn Bigelow major directing effort with "The Hurt Locker", when "Green Zone" does not seem to convince fully on whirling Baghdad-citizens story-interventions with picture-carrying Matt Damon under Greengrass' direction with respect of what had been possible to bring the utmost enduring stress situations for U.S. American soldiers to life, who deserve a full-bodied cinematic motivations of a "Brother in Arms" fighting cause as given with a more recent Mark Wahlberg led "Lone Survivor" (2013), when supporting characters as CIA-agent playing Brendan Gleeson and further U.S. army administration-executing characters portrayed by Amy Ryan and Greg Kinnear do not get the chance to punch necessary beats to make "Green Zone" a satisfactory war-action-movie without overly-done patriotism, but then again shallow mass-audience-seeking depth of an unless highly-potential screenplay by supreme screenwriter Brian Helgeland.

Bourne goes boring

This film started well but failed to captivate me. The closing action sequences film being shot in the dark with shaky cam were painful to sit through. Its no surprise this film lost money.

Im afraid this is a rare miss from paul greengrass

Doesn't offer much of new

Green Zone has been classified as a rare miss for both Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass. We remember when Green Zone was first released showing the trailers, it was relatively hyped up and described as a "Bourne film in war". The film wasn't received as well as the first three Bourne films and has flopped at the box office.

Within the story, It's 2003, where we see Matt Damon plays (Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller), head of a WMD-finding unit in Baghdad which keeps coming up empty at all the alleged sites. Suspecting bad leads, Miller goes maverick in his attempts to trace their original source, raising eyebrows and fighting the received orthodoxy. With all we know about the wool-pulling to make the case for war, it's a kick to follow a main character on the ground who smells a rat this early, wary of the stalling tactics the Pentagon are offering instead of conclusive proof.

Overall Green Zone doesn't grad the attention as one would have hoped for. It has its moments but in comparison to the Bourne films, Green Zone doesn't stack up and comes up short. Also compared to the Hurt Locker, in which we can see some similarities but the Hurt Locker feels as much of a more superior film.
