Green Zone: Directed by Paul Greengrass. With Igal Naor, Said Faraj, Faycal Attougui, Aymen Hamdouchi. Discovering covert and faulty intelligence causes a U.S. Army officer to go rogue as he hunts for Weapons of Mass Destruction in an unstable region.
Matt Damon plays a good military guy fed up with the bullshit of bad intelligence, bad treatment from his superiors, and given a glimpse of being able to get something done in a war torn country that’s not really open to the idea of “getting things done”. It’s a bit of a wish fulfillment at the end with Damon’s character saying all the things that we wanted to say at the end of the actual invasion of Iraq, but as with reality, by the time this confrontation happens, it’s far too little and too late to actually have an impact on the events.
