A Chief Warrant Officer and his team stumble upon an elaborate over-up that
inverts the purpose of their mission. Now he must hunt through covert and faulty
intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue
regime or escalate a war in an unstable region.
Thriller - This is a violent war/political thriller aimed at an adult audience. Violence and language make the film inappropriate for kids, who wouldn't be interested anyhow. Fans of star Matt Damon should be pleased as he gets most of the screen time.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 99 moviegoers:
TEENS:All but one teen enjoyed "Green Zone" very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Better than half the males and females loved this movie and, fortunately, most of the remaining reviews rated it "Good/Average," which is decent.
ADULTS:These are very good reviews, but not great for two reasons. First, there aren't very many "Fantastic" reviews. Second, there are too many "Good/Average" reviews. Fortunately, virtually no one disliked "Green Zone," so it's still a movie that I can recommend.
During the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Rocketing from one booby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men search for deadly chemical agents but stumble instead upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their mission.
Spun by operatives with intersecting agendas, Miller must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region. And at this blistering time and in this combustible place, he will find the most elusive weapon of all is the truth.
