Most people who go to the movies are seeking feel-good escapism. The public doesn't want to be reminded how wrong they were, as they rush to their next certainty. Green Zone will not please them.
March 18, 2010
Green Zone continues Greengrass and Damon's collaboration on making action films for the 'thinking person'.
March 18, 2010
While the film may be a bit too political, Greengrass delivers his signature style of film making which really sends you into the war zone with Matt Damon.
March 18, 2010
Often reaches 'gripping' on the cinematic alert level and shows more political smarts than most films on Iraq, let alone action movies. Ultimately over-ambitious yet still one of the best battlefield films for avoiding war-glorification.
March 18, 2010
This may not be the worst war movie I've seen, but it sure doesn't rank up there with the best of them.
March 17, 2010
It's provocative, involving and utterly gripping.
March 17, 2010
Green Zone is a supremely slick flick which doesn't overdo the political dialogue and knows exactly when to blow up a car in a long and complicated action sequence.
March 17, 2010
It's an engrossing (if fictionalized) answer to the question "How did we get here, exactly?"
March 17, 2010
If you can ignore the political bias and false premise, it's an entertaining film. But that's tough to do.
March 17, 2010
Missed opportunity to kneecap Bush's weapons-of-mass-destruction catastrophe
March 17, 2010
The movie, which takes its name from the walled-off compound in Baghdad occupied by the U.S. and coalition forces in 2003, is more like "Iraqi Hot Tub Time Machine."
March 17, 2010
When shots go in and out of focus, and when over the shoulder shots actually obscure the subject's face, that's not okay. You should know what you're shooting, even if it's constructed as 'documentary' style.
March 16, 2010
A thriller designed to provoke discussion of America's involvement in Iraq, Green Zone will more likely fuel rants about Hollywood's liberal bias.
March 16, 2010
Breathless action and complex intrigue ensure we are hooked throughout an expertly orchestrated war-zone thriller.
March 16, 2010
Greengrass -- reuniting with Damon -- does so with plenty of verve, plunging us into the chaos of the conflict in its earliest days and gradually pulling into focus a clear-headed narrative of what might have happened.
March 16, 2010
The prospect of seeing ace British director Paul Greengrass working with Matt Damon again will excite many cinemagoers.
March 16, 2010
A muscular, adrenaline-fuelled action blockbuster.
March 16, 2010
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.
March 16, 2010
There is no better director of action sequences and we really feel like we're ducking for cover from enemy fire as mayhem erupts.
March 16, 2010
Greengrass, with his superkinetic camerawork and visceral sense of you-are-there immediacy, pieces together a compelling picture of a ground force trying (and failing) to order a city on the slide towards anarchy.
