Excerpt: Roy Miller (played by Matt Damon, whose character was based from Richard Gonzalez, an Army Chief Warrant Officer) discovers inaccurate intel from a mysterious source. Story revolves around this premise coupled with lots of gunfights, abduction and chases. It's loaded of background figures, lack of better character development, dizzying camerawork and swift editing makes this picture rushed and difficult to comprehend.
Excerpt: The Bourne team are once again reunited to tell the story of a US soldier investigating WMD sites who stumbles upon a conspiracy involving the government and an Iraqi general. The combination of Paul "shakycam" Greengrass and Matt Damon, playing his usual likeable action man of the people was always going to invite comparisons with their previous collaborations.
Excerpt: Film rating: 6.5/10 I don't quite know how to sum Green Zone up. It's not a bad movie by any means, but I don't think I could recommend it to everyone either. Green Zone marks the third collaboration of director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon. The two of them are responsible for two of my favorite films, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. It's safe to say they know each other well.
Excerpt: Difficult to comprehend the point of Paul Greengrasses movie. As an Iraqi war movie, its a million miles behind Katherine Bigelows "The Hurt Locker with its murky action scenes and suspense free chase sequences. As a political statement, Green Zone is excessively heavy handed with sprinkles of liberal bias and a conspiracy theory that most people believe in anyway.
Excerpt: Fans of Green Zone should check out a brilliant new British film called ‘In Our Name’ opening this Friday 10th December in Curzon cinemas and countrywide via the new Curzon-On-Demand video streaming (https://www.curzoncinemas.com/film_on_demand/ - great for those of us who don’t live near an arthouse cinema!).
Summary: Enough action to keep things moving with a dramatic story that keeps up the tension. While I know fact and fiction have been mixed, just the idea this is based on true events is enough to make you think about what happens behind the scenes and how it affects millions.
Summary: Lots of action, lots of conspiracy, lots of politics, and a good cast make for a decent film. Based loosely on real events (and I really stress the word loosely), Damon plays a soldier trying to uncover the real reasons for the Iraq war. As always, the Damon-Greengrass pairing is extremely strong, and there's a pretty good supporting cast as well (though Amy Ryan isn't really given much to do).
Excerpt: Well it's a military action movie with Matt Damon, so of course it's great. There is lots of great action adventure, and drama throughout. This movie is highly recommended... but maybe just on dvd. PQ: Some day time scenes were great... then you got the night time scenes. Many day time scenes are extremely grainy and disrupt the whole picture. Pretty much all night time scenes are just pure grain... seriously.
Excerpt: Typical Greengrass movie ...starting from the first scene. Handheld camera shots fast pace doesn't let you down...i would highly recommend for those of you like political war thrillers.... Video : Grainy in night scenes.... could have been much better Audio : Terrific / Mind Blowing / Worth buy for audio alone.
