Green Zone...

Perhaps it's telling that it's taken me almost two weeks to get around to saying something about Green Zone, but I really couldn't think of much to say. It's what I like to call, an "Iraq-tion" movie (combining Iraq and Action) ... although if you don't pronounce that perfectly you'll just sound like a bit of a pervert.

Anyway, it's not as thrilling and intriguing as the Bourne franchise, but the action sequences (especially a perfectly panicked, even chilling opening) are pretty good - well, you'd hope so considering it's Paul Greengrass at the helm.

Plot wise it all gets a bit confusing after a while when it gets into the nitty gritty of WMD ... or the lack thereof and what's really going on. Quite quickly you give up trying to figure out that stuff, unsure of how much is true and how much is fiction, and just wait for another well made action sequence to roll around.

Probably the best of the "Iraq-tion" genre, if you will, but nothing all that amazing either.
