Paul Greengrass directs this Iraq war thriller loosely based on the book 'Imperial Life in the Emerald City' by Washington Post journalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran. Matt Damon stars as Chief Army Warrant Officer Roy Miller, a specialist soldier who joins forces with Wall Street reporter Lawrie Dayne (Amy Ryan) to expose the hotbed of covert and faulty intelligence surrounding the search for Iraq's cache of weapons of mass destruction. Greg Kinnear and Brendan Gleeson co-star.

Format: DVD
Three years after the huge success of the Bourne trilogy's final instalment, Paul Greengrass and his star Matt Damon returned with this conspiracy action thriller set just after the invasion of Iraq in 2003. It focuses on Damon and his team's searches for Weapons of Mass Destruction to no avail. It is as Damon begins to question his own side that he meets Brendan Gleeson's Middle East expert; who also suspects that something is not quite right. The second act of Greengrass' film is a cleverly constructed conspiracy thriller that sees Damon delve deeper into his leaders' secrets. This makes for gripping viewing despite the fact it is slightly predictable.
Having said that, if you are a fan of the high octane thrills that Damon and Greengrass delivered so well in The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum then you will not be disappointed as Green Zone both begins and ends with trademark hand-held camera action. The climactic chase through seemingly endless alleyways perhaps goes on slightly too long but it nevertheless produces excitement and shock.
Damon's character is somewhat underwritten. It would have been nice to know of his own motives for joining the armed forces and a little bit of back-story but nevertheless he is a good hero to follow through the film. It is Gleeson and Greg Kinnear (as a high-up opponent to Gleeson and Damon's conspiracy theories) however, who provide the strong performances that help make Green Zone a thought-provoking political drama as well as just an action blockbuster.

Format: DVD
Movie fans who like Paul Greengrass's handling of thrilling chase sequences in the Bourne movies that he directed won't be disappointed here. The last act of the movie follows the pursuit of an Iraqi general by two separate groups -- one that wants him dead and one that doesn't -- and it's quite marvelous how Greengrass keeps the pursuits clear enough in our minds, especially since we are talking about night-time military operations in an urban setting. There are lots of narrow passages, narrow streets, people dashing in and out of doors -- in fact, remarkably like the kind of thing that I saw in "The Adjustment Bureau," which also featured Matt Damon. But that movie was pure entertainment: here something is at stake, at least in the minds of the pursuers: nothing less than the future of Iraq, or rather, two competing versions of the future. Interestingly, the movie isn't simply favoring one of these over the other, as the end of the chase makes clear -- and in the interest of not spoiling that ending, I'll just leave it at that. But it is the characters' beliefs about what matters that does give weight to the chase, so that it's not an empty thrill. If it were, the movie could be legitimately be criticized as exploitation.

There's more to the movie than the chase, though. The first part is about Matt Damon's character, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller, realizing that the intelligence his troop is working with to enable them to find and secure WMD sites is useless -- and he begins to suspect that he and possibly American policy makers have been deliberately misled. In the Green Zone, the American HQ in central Baghdad, he finds that a high-level official, Clark Poundstone (Greg Kinnear, smoothly togged out in civvies) won't listen when he tells him that there seem to be no WMDs.

Although most people are against this film as they argue that the chacacters are under developed which they are a little, I still enjoyed the action in it. It was a shame that they didnt give more of an insite to Matt Damon's character, like why did he deside to join the army and why was he so intent on getting this mission complete. I wanted to know just a little bit more about the Chacacters and its a shame that they didnt inform us more about them. The first time I watched it thought that it was brilliant as I am very into millitary/espionage/action genre's in films and TV. I thought that although Matt Damon is defently my favorite Actor, this film didnt seem to do him any justice, Although this film is directed by Paul Greengrass who is the director of the Bourne series, which matt Damon stars in, and is a very famous and good series, I think that personally it did him no justice!

-Green Zone [DVD]Discovering covert and faulty intelligence causes a U.S. Army officer to go rogue as he hunts for Weapons of Mass Destruction in an unstable region.

Format: Blu-ray
Matt Damon' teams up again with director 'Paul Greengrass'( Bourne) to bring us this exciting and perhaps relevent war story.
'Chief Miller' (Matt Damon) leads a unit in the search for 'Saddam's' 'WMD' just a few weeks into the 'IRAQ' war.
Site after Site comes up empty, which begins to make 'Miller' suspicIous of the motives of the conflict.
When a Iraq citizen offers help to find members of 'The Pack of Cards' obstacles and intimidation from his own side leads 'Miller' to uncover a truth, and conspiracy, that the 'u.s' public should not hear ?
This film is 'action-packed' and fast moving , i was well pleased with my purchase of the film........well worth adding to your collection.

The Green Zone is set in Baghdad after the fall of Saddam Hussein. Matt Damon plays a US soldier leading a unit searching for Saddam's putative weapons of mass destruction. The director is Paul Greengrass, best known for his contribution to Damon's The Ultimate Bourne Collection [Blu-ray][Region Free]; familiar faces in the solid supporting cast include Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson and Jason Isaacs.

The film cannot quite match the adrenaline-pumping dramatics of Black Hawk Down [Blu-ray] [2007][Region Free], for example, and the twists and turns of its plot aren't as compelling as those which Jack Bauer had to negotiate in 24 - Season 8 [Blu-ray]. What raises this film above some other thrillers is an underlying seriousness. Although confessedly a work of fiction, it often reminds me of the reality of Iraq that I remember reading about in my newspaper, and it should certainly provide any citizen of one of the countries that went to war against Saddam with a good deal of food for thought.

The picture quality tends more to the gritty, grainy end of the spectrum than to conventional Hollywood gloss. If I were trying to show a sceptical friend why Blu-rays are better than DVDs, this is not the first disc I would take down from the shelf.
