Synopsis Matt Damon reunites with his BOURNE ULTIMATUM director Paul Greengrass for another stylish, smart thriller in GREEN ZONE. At the beginning of the war in Iraq, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) searches for the weapons of mass destruction, as he and his team battle both inaccurate intelligence and deadly traps. This film also stars Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Jason Isaacs, and recent Oscar nominee Amy Ryan (GONE BABY GONE).[T]he rapid-fire editing nervously stitches the stunts, chases, fights and confrontations together. It's a remarkable film.4 stars out of 5 -- Greengrass concentrates on a specific situation and lets the context take care of itself....An expertly orchestrated war-zone thriller.The jittery camerawork, familiar from Greengrass' previous work adn here implemented by Barry Ackroyd, achieves visceral reactions at times...3 stars out of 4 -- [E]ven in this BOURNE Zone, Damon and Greengrass haven't shirked their duty to enlighten and entertain.As a war thriller, ZONE works on a visceral level....Damon is first-rate...4 stars out of 4 -- It has a point to argue....This is one hell of a thriller.made with daring and pasion....This is a red-hot action thriller that deals candidly and unapologetically with the situation in Iraq.There is plenty of fighting in GREEN ZONE, most of it executed with the hurtling hand-held camerawork and staccato editing that are hallmarks of Mr. Greengrass's style....Action under pressure is, for him, a test and a revelation of characters.[M]uch of the craftsmanship in GREEN ZONE is first-rate. Mr. Damon, as usual, takes charge of his character with understated yet formidable authority.Greengrass has a compulsively watchable style and a sharp understanding of Damon's unlikely strengths as an action hero....The standoffs, showdowns, and cat-and-mouse chases are bracing, sometimes even BOURNE cool.4 stars out of 5 -- [I]ts pointed political subtext ensures Damon and Greengrass deliver their most provocative mission yet.3 stars out of 4 -- If viewed as a thrilling war movie, GREEN ZONE is a compelling ride through war-torn Iraq, putting you right alongside of Damon as he susses out the truth.
