havent seen the movie yet, but already the neocons are trashing it. Wake up boys, there were no wmd's in Iraq.

Lots of action for a totally fabricated, viciously liberal political attack movie. It's even entertaining, but, isn't it about time for a factual movie about President Bush and the war in Iraq?

As entertainment, moderately so. Camera work was occassionally distracting with the herky jerky screen shots. I mostly like Damon's work, just not his politics. The story is a leftwing fairytale, the acting fair to good, the action good.

A must see for all Americans who

When Mr. Greengrass made "United 93," his 2006 reconstruction of one of the Sept. 11 hijackings, some people fretted that it was too soon. My own response to Green Zone is almost exactly the opposite: it's about time. Full Review
The jittery, scattershot camerawork of Greengrass's longtime cinematographer, Barry Ackroyd, was used far more coherently in Kathryn Bigelow's Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker," and the constant blurry close-ups of computer screens and street-level scrums lose their power with each successive cut.

Zone feels anticlimactic now. It also pales in comparison to Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker," the most powerful film yet made about the Iraq war. Full Review
To suggest that a lone, brave soldier could have set things right with a little amateur sleuthing seems like cinematic wish-fulfillment, an insult both to the intelligence of viewers and to the troops. Full Review
Damon's prior appearances as Jason Bourne make him credible in this role. Full Review
