Product Description

Amazon.ca

Matt Damon reteams with his Bourne Supremacy director to create a thriller grounded in contemporary politics: the search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) travels across war-torn Iraq, pursuing the intelligence he's been given, but every site indicated comes up empty of WMDs. Investigating the source of the intelligence, he finds himself caught between CIA agent Martin Brown (Brendan Gleeson, 28 Days Later) and politician Clark Poundstone (Greg Kinnear, Little Miss Sunshine) over the identity of "Magellan," the supposed source. As Miller tracks down an Iraqi general, he ends up further and further afield, facing danger from all sides. It's hard to say which is the greater accomplishment--that Green Zone manages to turn a still-volatile political issue into a propulsive action movie, or that it manages to depict Iraqi people as individuals with a wide range of responses to what's happened to their country. Damon's performance is low-key but effective as Miller tries to maintain some semblance of moral clarity in a circumstance that muddies everything. Also featuring Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone) as a compromised journalist and Khalid Abdalla (The Kite Runner) as an Iraqi civilian who gets dragged into far more than he expected. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly enjoyable politics of war flick Jan. 2 2011
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Why this movie was not a huge hit at the box office shows you the masses always have questionable tastes. As a war movie on its own it's a thriller with some frenetic street fighting scenes and super tense action. As a political thriller is where is really takes off as it's an expose of the whole WMD scam that led to the US invasion of Iraq under Bush the Dubya one.

Matt Damon carries this movie with an evenly played intensity that never goes over the top. If you're wondering why the military scenes are so well done, you'll learn on the extras that the soldiers playing soldiers in the movie are soldiers. They were also culled from these same army units that were sent out to find these non-existent WMDs.

The director is Paul Greengrass who did the last two Bourne movies with Damon so you get that same level of action but this time it's far better played. Whereas the first Bourne movie (The Bourne Identity) done by Doug Liman stands head and shoulders above the Greengrass follow-ups, Green Zone shows Greengrass knows how to scale it down to a more human level without the action impeding too much on the story.

Kudos to the casting, especially Khalid Abdalla who becomes the translator for Damon's military unit virtually by accident.

The DVD is definitely worth the price as you get to see the story behind hiring actual soldiers to fill the military roles and the way the filmmakers turned Morocco into the war-torn streets of Baghdad.

4.0 out of 5 stars tense,exciting July 25 2010
By falcon
Format:DVD
i had high hopes for this this political thriller directed by Paul Greengrass and starring Mattt Damon.i wasn't disappointed.there were some very tense and exciting moments and the film does get high marks for authenticity and realism.the hand held camera and the so called shakiness than people complain about doesn't bother me at all.that just adds to the realism as does the graininess in certain scenes.the chaos of war is also captured very well here too.as for the acting,Matt Damon was convincing,but not a standout Brendan Gleeson and Greg Kinear were both very good,but for me,Jason Isaacs and the under-appreciated Amy Ryan were brilliant.Ryan really impressed with her character,even though it wasn't a huge role.for me,Green Zone is a 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars But is it True? Aug. 21 2014
Format:DVD
This is a very entertaining film, simply as entertainment. Well paced, well scripted, well acted and very well directed by Paul Greengrass with his recognizable "Bourne" style of swift, sharp, clean, and lots of action. There are no real standouts acting-wise as this is an ensemble effort, though I particularly liked the fellow who played their Iraqi helper.

But is it true? The plot is basically saying that the West went into Iraq purporting to be looking for Saddam's WMD's, but already knowing that there were none. But when Saddam's son-in-law defected to Jordan, he brought crates - not just one, - but crates full of documentation regarding the WMD's. Vice Air Marshall General George Sada of the Iraqi Air Force has publicly stated that before the Western armies arrived, 56 passenger aircraft were emptied of seats etc., and loaded with WMD's and flown to Syria. (I suspect myself that there were probably more buried where they could not be found, but as yet, we don't know that for sure).And even if they did not find any at that time, does any rational person believe that there never were any in the first place?

Which brings me to my next point, which is that there is a subtle undertone in this film that Saddam was not really such a bad fellow after all, and we were too hard on him really. (Read some actual accounts of people who lived through his dictatorship and it is obvious that he was a barbaric monster with the power of life and death over every citizen of Iraq, and he ruled by absolute terror.) There is also a rather anti-American, anti-West spirit which prevails throughout. I am rather weary of this "West bashing" which one sees so much of now, and it is not only foolish PC rubbish, but also not historically accurate. Western countries have much to be proud of, and if we all knew our history better, we would be aware of that fact.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not MAtt's best Dec 19 2010
Format:DVD
Although a great film I felt that this was not Matt Damon's best performance. Yes there was action but the the storyline did not provide the sort of action I was expecting. It was more about corruption by the American Government with a bit of action.
