Movie Summary

Paul Greengrass

Green Zone is an acclaimed thriller from award winning director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, United 93). The story concerns Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Matt Damon) who is in charge of a U.S. Army team that is supposed to find WMD's in Iraq. However, Miller's team not only keeps coming up empty, his team is sent in to places that obviously have not held WMD's for several years, or never had WMD's there in the first place. Miller begins to question the intelligence that he and his team have been given about their targets. Miller befriends a CIA agent Martin Brown (Brendan Gleeson, A.I., The Village) who tells him that he's on a wild goose chase. Miller then gets in the middle of a political war between Brown and a character that is obviously supposed to be Paul Bremer, by the name of Clark Poundstone (Greg Kinnear, The Bad News Bears). Brown and Miller set out on a hunt for the individual who is allegedly the source of American intel about WMD, General Mohammad Al-Rawi. If Brown and Miller can locate him, Brown believes Al-Rawi will be able to expose the fact there are no WMD's in Iraq and also be a contact with the Iraqi Army and prevent an insurgency.
