Shockin Aweful?!! - Slick

5 Points

Viewer Rating:Slick has rated Green Zone rating: 3 Star

Go see for one reason - SHOCK AND AWE....this movie gives utterly terrifying witness to what that phrase really means - will leave you dry-mouthed, unfortunately that's the first 10 minutes, then it's a cat and mouse chase that I found tedious, CIA twists included. Too little shooting, well that would have been a turkey shoot so best avoided. Enjoyable but a thriller disappointment. A war film that doesn't feel like it. Not Bourne in Black Hawk Down - more Matt in Syriana. "I'm hear to save lives" says Chief Damon, and we have to watch him get his ass kicked by Special Forces....fight back Bourne? Very much politically correct then - there is no aura of menace created around Saddam's military (remember they were the largest standing army pre-1991), they're hardly visible. Great insight into the sophistication of the U.S. military, and the lack of such for a post-war plan for peace. Is Damon not typecast as the super-assassin - my mistake then, but it's a shame. As for WMD's - this movie provides the definitive answer, amongst the legion of definitive answers.

This movie really shouldn't get any stars. It disgraces our military by insinuating that some would knowingly follow immoral orders. This is just another Hollywood liberal Bush bashing movie. MORE
