It takes a special kind of talent, the kind of talent that Paul Greengrass has, to make a movie as annoying as Green Zone.

"Green Zone" simply offers up a fun, entertaining ride that has you on the edge of your seat throughout most of the film. If you are into the politics though, you may just find it a little more interesting.

The story of the Iraq War is fascinating, but the checklist of talking points is not.

Green Zone is the rare miss from frequent collaborators Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass.

It's like Inglourious Basterds but without the fun.

Greengrass' Green Zone is about half political thriller and half action thriller and unfortunately it's only successful at one of those halves. Doubly unfortunate, the half that does work isn't the part he's interested in.

As a politically-charged action film, it accomplishes the mission.

It's one thing for the filmmakers to (sort of) fictionalize real people, but Green Zone wraps up with a wish-fulfillment fantasy that is about as believable as watching reinforcements riding in to save Custer.

An angry, critical movie, but in the name of accessibility it foregoes complexity and depth in a subject that requires it.

I'd likely be damning Green Zone for facile political messages if it weren't for the fact that more than a fair share of people out there are in desperate need of them.

...there's a lot to like in directorPaul Greengrass' fast-break freneticism and in the evocatively fictionalized Iraq war story told here. It's nothing we haven't heard before, but - for Hollywood, at least - it's nuanced and exciting storytelling.

Merece créditos por se preocupar em usar sua embalagem de "longa de ação" para abordar um assunto sério que deveria ganhar mais destaque na imprensa mundial.

Green Zone says that not even Matt Damon in full fury can change much of anything.

Green Zone begins with Shock and Awe, and Paul Greengrass tries to maintain that tone for the rest of the movie.

Part political thriller and part actioner, 'The Green Zone' is a war movie that will appeal to thinking audiences and those who appreciate a rush of adrenaline.

A decent action film that tackles interesting subject material that deserves attention but many won't pay to see oversimplified finger-pointing even if it features some of our favorite actors.
