DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good Green Zone will satisfy those who enjoy political thrillers and those who prefer something more action-oriented.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent It's my belief that the nature of the neocon evildoing has by now become pretty clear. Others will disagree. The bottom line is: This is one hell of a thriller.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

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.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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.
