This week's reviewed movie is:
The Green Zone

Matt Damon plays Roy Miller, an Army warrant officer in Iraq assigned to
find weapons of mass destruction.

After not finding any at many locations, he suspects the information is
not true and confronts the top brass with no straight answers.

Putting politics aside, Green Zone makes for a good fast thriller that
will give you a good fast ride, something Matt Damon has gotten very
good at.

I know, you've heard it all before: there were no WMDs!

But this compelling "fictional" suspense film is all about the search
for them.

Filmed in a documentary style with a shaky hand-held camera, director
Paul Greengrass takes us back to Baghdad, where Matt Damon hunts,
chases, pursues, and races to find the elusive non-existant prize.

Along the way, he discovers deception, untruth, and strange patriotic
alliances -- "Mission Accomplished."

This is a fast-paced military action political action political thriller
about the search for WMDs during the invasion of Iraq.

The way the movie twists together fact and fiction keeps things

The motion starts with a walk, then run, then finally race with bullets
flying overhead -- a style that keeps your adrenaline moving and gives
you very little time to sit around thinking.

This is the work of director Paul Greengrass, a specialist in high-wire
visual filmmaking, who puts the star, Matt Damon, through his
action-hero paces in the Bourne projects and now the Green Zone flick --
a simple, angry, fictional warzone fast-mover about how the star patriot
blows the lid off America's missteps in Iraq.
