I don't like polemics, not even those supporting my position. This film does not support my position...the movie contains far too little in terms of a coherent, believable plot.

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

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.

Paul Greengrass's loud, Damon-driven documentary-style thriller confusingly weaves fact and fiction and whipsaws between various conspiracy theories, while the nonstop action mimics an Xbox splatter game.

I can't believe people will not go to see Green Zone in their droves. I certainly hope they do, for it is a shocking, replenishing film, not to be missed.

Fine sentiments, but you can't just use politics to juice up a formula thriller, especially when you know better.

Green Zone is an entertaining movie, which features all the explosions, chases and stunning scenes that the subject merits. [Full review in Spanish]

No doubt borrowing inspiration from real events, Green Zone is a nail-biting story of one man's single mission to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences.

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.

This is a frenetic and powerful action flick that brings the fight to you.

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

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.

Como película de acción funciona a medias; es ágil y por momentos tensa, pero no propone nada novedoso y en varios momentos no resulta convincente. Lo interesante es que se ubica en un lugar inusualmente crítico para la industria de Hollywood.
