Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum, United 93) re-team for their latest electrifying thriller in Green Zone, a film set in the chaotic early days of the Iraqi War when no one could be trusted and every decision could detonate unforeseen consequences.
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.
the story is not true to history but i am not sure why they want tell us that US fight war just because they want to give a reason as to why 911 incident happen?
i personally feel Freddy has a very meaningful role in this movie. this shows that in there are peopl who are not happy with Iraqi governing/army but yet they are also not happy with the way US tried to "help" them. it is sad to have common people who have no say and yet not well-fed by the governing parties.
there was one scene which got laughed out! said by Freddy to Miller, something like, "why are you all digging here?!"
i hear this movie!!
the only negative feedback i have for it is the night scenes with so many movings which i could hardly figure out… too dark and too fast, a little tiring for my eyes!
