Green Zone

Tuesday March 9th 2010


We first wrote about Green Zone a couple of weeks ago, but that was mainly to complain about the crapulosity of the Empire Leicester Square.

It finally came out of embargo yesterday, but we thought we’d wait until the Oscar dust had cleared to give it a proper assessment. And here it is:

20 WORD REVIEW
Greengrass directs with Bourne-like kineticism and Damon will fuck your shit up,
but the politics at heart are unbearably heavy-handed.

10 WORD REVIEW
Resembles previous Iraq War films, but with more shaky cam.

5 WORD REVIEW
6/10 for the shouting alone.
