Green Zone | ★★★★★★★

Watched this movie on DVD with Ann and have to admit that it was a troubling story set at the onset of the war in Iraq. It deals with the futile search in Iraq for Saddam's Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs). The flick centers around a Chief Warrant Officer (played by Matt Damon) who is tasked to use intelligence acquired (before war was declared) to find the WMDs. Damon's character is based in part on a real Warrant Officer's story - and I have to say that it is a very dark picture of the politics of war and one soldiers struggle to bring out the truth about WMDs. The movie has a lot adrenaline pumping action and is appropriately rated "R". But, having seen it, I do not think that I will see it again - just too dark and depressing. Even so, on a scale of 10 I give this movie ★★★★★★★.


  1. I suggest watching "There will be blood" as an uplifting story of redemption to offset the dark mood of Green zone.

  2. I hope the last comment was kidding but it does no seem so. The recommendation of There Will Be Blood, as redemptive suggest it is not dark. It is extremely dark.

  3. Thanks for the review. I think I'll pass on this one.

  4. Helpful blog, bookmarked the website with hopes to read more!
