Green Zone

Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Matt Damon) leads a squad charged with locating Weapons of Mass Destruction facilities around Iraq after Saddam is ousted. But despite all his “verified” intelligence, Miller keeps finding nothing: bird poo is about as hazardous as it gets. A journalist and a CIA operative also want to know what’s going on, but Miller is told by his bosses to shut up and keep shovelling. The situation escalates as Miller picks up the trail of a Saddam lieutenant who might know the grubby truth. There’s plenty of pace here but that truth isn’t much of a shock; also the lead character is a bit too squeaky clean to be interesting. 6/10
