The Twenty-First Century

Green Zone [2010]

 “It is not for you to decide what happens here.”

Matt Damon teams up once again with his “Bourne” director Paul Greengrass in this war thriller set in Iraq. My expectations were high, so eventually I was pretty disappointed. It’s not a bad movie, but it wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be. Damon is in fine form as always, but the movie feels awfully uneven and boring at times. In other words: it’s no “Bourne”. Too bad. Greengrass’s next project will probably eat this one up (I hope).

Fun fact: “The scenes of downtown Baghdad were shot in Morocco.”
