I guess people will start comparing Green Zone  with The Hurt Locker.  For me, the biggest difference between the two is that for The Hurt Locker, it's about the soldiers on the ground.  That's what makes it great.  With Green Zone, it's about the politics.  It has Matt Damon.

'Nuff said.

Didn't much care for this film, as it was just hard to bypass the 2-dimensional characterizations and didactic feel to the script. Yes, Greengrass = tons of shaky-cam, and it's kinda of pervasive in most of the action scenes.

Even with the Damon-Greengrass pedigree, I recommend a matinee showing at best.

I give it 2 stars, or a grade of C.
