Becky and I went to see the new Matt Damon movie Green Zone on Friday night at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Yahoo website at Green Zone describes the movie as follows:
“During the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Rocketing from one bobby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men search for deadly chemical agents but stumble instead upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their…”
Green Zone is not at all like the Jason Bourne series by any stretch, so don’t be fooled by the Previews of this movie. The story is about what happened to start the Iraq War. Supposedly Matt Damon’s character, who was in the U.S. Army and looking for WMD’s, figured out that there was a massive cover-up by the White House and alerted the world by going to war with the CIA and the current Administration.
I thought we were watching Hollywood re-write history with Matt Damon playing the main character, which I guess is no surprise based on his political views. Remember him commenting on Sarah Palin during the election, well apparently he wanted to say a little more with this movie.
I’m not a fan of the Bush Administration or the amount of money we have spent on the Iraq War while our nation is going broke, but this movie was totally lame. It was so boring that Becky fell asleep and we should have got up and left. Green Zone was about as fun watching as a documentary on ozone while having the air slowly sucked out of the room.
Our advice is don’t waste your money on this one or wait for the rental.
