Green Zone

Rated R 115 min. 2010

Although a good movie can and should be made that investigates the political misinformation used to justify the war in Iraq, Paul Greengrass' Green Zone, which was shot more than two years ago, feels like a dated political drama grounded in theatrics and buzzwords. If you want in-depth analysis of the film's topic—the quixotic hunt for weapons of mass destruction—the best you will get is Matt Damon, as Army warrant officer Roy Miller, screaming variations on "Where are the WMDs!" or "Tell me about the WMDs!" The film's in-your-face sense of urgency now seems strangely passé—it may as well be about feverishly hunting for leprechauns or trying to uncover Iraq's stockpiles of pixie dust.
