Watched Green Zone :S

Sometimes you go in to the cinema with lots of expectations and come back disappointed and feeling like you have been fooled by a trailer that looks far better than the movie. Well this Saturday (2009-04-17) was one of those days for me.

After watching Green Zone trailer, I went to see the movie with lots of expectations. Trailer of the movie raised my expectations and I was expecting some intense action close to “Bourne Trilogy”. I know that it is from a different director but the trailer looked awesome. But it turned out to be just another action movie for me. I am not saying it is a bad movie. But it is not as good as its trailer make you think it is.  It has high ratings and lots of positive reviews on IMDB, but personally I expected more. At least a more dramatic ending.

But again it tell a fiction which tries to look compatible with the reality. Search for WMD in Iraq which were not there. Therefore it is very difficult to make the movie more spectacular without making it look very different from the reality unless you get very creative.

If you going to watch it don’t expect too much action or you will be disappointed. Well that’s what I think about it. You are welcome to share your opinion.

  1. Green Zone is the latest Iraq War inspired motion picture. I wasn’t expecting much and ended up being pleasantly surprised. It’s a fast paced and riveting ride from the get-go. The war being fought in the film is more between the Pentagon and the CIA than the US v Iraq which makes it all the more interesting and the film allows you to see things from Iraq’s perspective for a change.
