The Green Zone

The Green Zone is a nice taut political thriller set in Baghdad starring Matt Damon and it feels a lot like Jason Bourne went and joined the army (which isn’t all that surprising since it was directed by Paul Greengrass who also directed the last two Bourne films). Damon plays Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller whose assignment is to find those Weapons of Mass Destruction that we went to war about. It is very early in the war in Iraq, and Miller’s team has so far been sent on a series wild goose chases to find WMDs in various and sundry places without any success. He is beginning to question the intelligence that the army has been given and when he starts digging for the truth, he puts himself in a dangerous position.
