For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Preview- Green Zone (Bluray)

Paul Greengrass directs Oscar winner Matt Damon alongside Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Amy Ryan, Khalid Abdalla, and Jason Isaacs in this non-stop explosive action thriller.

The time: 2003…..The place: Baghdad. The mission: locate Weapons of Mass Destruction hidden by Saddam’s regime. Chief Miller (Matt Damon) leads an elite Army team searching for WMD’s…instead they uncover a deadly conspiracy of murder and deception reaching to the top. As Miller hunts through covert and faulty intelligence that either clears a rogue regime or escalates a war in an unstable region, he discovers that no-one can be trusted and the deadliest enemies are those who claim to be on his side.

Paul Greengrass’s directing style redefined action movies in the noughties with The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. Though he started his directing career in the 1980s, working on the ITV current affairs programme World in Action. Greengrass wrote the script for the movie inspired by Imperial Life in the Emerald City, Rajiv Chandrasekaran’s best-selling nonfiction book about the ill-prepared attempt to build American democracy in a war-torn Middle Eastern country. 

Matt Damon’s character Roy Miller is based on U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer named Richard “Monty” Gonzales who had the real-life job of hunting for WMD’s after the fall of Baghdad. Gonzales was hired as principal military adviser on the film. The political theme of the film caused film critic and US military veteran Kyle Smith to label the film as “slander” and “appallingly anti-American.” Gonzales said that any political controversy is unwarranted, he wanted the film to be faithful to the experience of American soldiers in Iraq and does not think the film reflects a genuine conspiracy by the Federal government of the United States.
