More Info:
  • Richard Corliss

    An expensive flop and the latest Iraq movie to be shunned by the mass audience, Green Zone was still the year's most visceral, thrilling entertainment.

    Time Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    It is a thriller, not a documentary. It's my belief that the nature of the neocon evildoing has by now become pretty clear. Others will disagree. The bottom line is: This is one hell of a thriller.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Damon's prior appearances as Jason Bourne make him credible in this role.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    When Mr. Greengrass made "United 93," his 2006 reconstruction of one of the Sept. 11 hijackings, some people fretted that it was too soon. My own response to Green Zone is almost exactly the opposite: it's about time.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Made with daring and passion, it attempts the impossible and comes remarkably close to pulling it off. So close, in fact, that the skill and audacity used, the shock and awe of this highly entertaining attempt, are more significant than the imperfect results.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Christopher Rouse's rapid-fire editing nervously stitches the stunts, chases, fights and confrontations together. It's a remarkable film.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mark Dinning

    Bourne goes epic. A wham-bam actioner, but its pointed political subtext ensures Damon and Greengrass deliver their most provocative mission yet.

    Empire Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    A master of smash-mash montage and choreographed chaos, Greengrass is the best action director working today, adroit at producing the sense of everyone converging and everything happening simultaneously.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The cast is strong, and Damon is a dependable center for all this, a classic American good guy wanting to know what's rotten and why.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    No matter where your political gullibilities lie, Green Zone is a riveting piece of actioneering.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Watchable in spite of Greengrass as much as because of him. The story is good enough to make viewers want to ignore the photography.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Mixes fact and speculation in a way that's already raised the ire of some on the right as well as on the left.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Green Zone can't make up its mind whether it's "The Bourne Insurrection" or "Hurt Locker: The Prequel."

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Jordan Burchette

    It's at times implausible and heavy-handed, but thrillers need villains and it's not like the Ba'ath Party had an exclusive license on 'em.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    This is a movie that recognizes there's no straight line to the truth, which is part of what makes it vaguely unsatisfying -- though it's also what keeps it honest. Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    To pretend that the film doesn't make a political statement is silly. Of course it does. It wouldn't be effective at all if it didn't.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Indeed, Green Zone plays a little bit like a video game version of the Oscar-winning film (The Hurt Locker)-- which should tell you right off whether it's for you or not.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    For the first time in Greengrass' career, the politics too often get ahead of the action, so points that might have been subtly embedded in the story are instead laid out like a left-wing editorial.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Miller's wake-up call is meant to be ours. Too little and too late? Maybe. But even in this Bourne Zone, Damon and Greengrass haven't shirked their duty to enlighten and entertain.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The jittery, scattershot camerawork of Greengrass's longtime cinematographer, Barry Ackroyd, was used far more coherently in Kathryn Bigelow's Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker," and the constant blurry close-ups of computer screens and street-level scrums lose their power with each successive cut.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Zone feels anticlimactic now. It also pales in comparison to Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker," the most powerful film yet made about the Iraq war.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Partly real and partly, increasingly, fantastic and outlandish in its wishful thinking.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Green Zone is just an excuse for director Paul Greengrass to haul out his jittery hand-held camera as Miller and Co. sprint through the streets and buildings of Baghdad in pursuit of one villain or another.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Green Zone is somewhere between a blockbuster and a tract -- a traction movie. It whizzes and bangs and sizzles as it chases the truth like a dog off its leash.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    In the wake of the Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker" - a far better film, and one with a less strident, less obvious agenda - Green Zone arrives looking strangely anachronistic.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Green Zone wraps up with a wish-fulfillment fantasy that is about as believable as watching reinforcements riding in to save Custer.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    With Green Zone, though, the malaise has finally hit me. So while Damon's Miller uncovers the (inconvenient) truth of why the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003, all I want to know is: How does he suggest we get out?

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    To suggest that a lone, brave soldier could have set things right with a little amateur sleuthing seems like cinematic wish-fulfillment, an insult both to the intelligence of viewers and to the troops.

    Slate Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Screenwriter Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River) is the real culprit here, creating a crude paint-by-numbers fiction that keeps yelling about the importance of the truth while hurtling in the opposite direction.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Director Paul Greengrass has applied his jumpy, tumbling visual style to action blockbusters with Matt Damon and serious dramatizations of political events. This Iraq war drama makes a game attempt to meld the two, though manufacturing thrills takes precedence over any kind of journalistic insight.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Once Damon's one-man truth squad goes off the reservation and starts behaving too much like Jason Bourne for comfort, the film begins not only spilling more blood but also leaking crucial credibility.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Shot by Barry Ackroyd, the same cinematographer who filmed "The Hurt Locker," and using the same camera techniques, this movie looks like outtakes from a much better film.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Green Zone isn't so much a bad movie as a misguided one.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    For a while Green Zone generates genuine excitement, as well as plenty of provocation--a fatuous surrogate for Ahmed Chalabi, a pervasive scorn for American planning--but then goes off its own reservation into a won't-fly zone of awkward preachments and hapless absurdities.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Ray Greene

    Green Zone is an exercise in commercial cowardice masquerading as a thriller about political bravery.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It's also rather tawdry. The climax is as ludicrous as any Jack Bauer adventure, and Greengrass is always on shaky ground. Literally.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    What lends the film its grip and its haste is also what makes it unsatisfactory.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Not since a Nam-scarred Sly Stallone asked, "Do we get to win this time?" in "Rambo: First Blood Part II" has an American action star been deployed to rewrite history so thoroughly.
