By: Jared Counts, March 10th, 2010 05:00 AMInspired by the book Imperial Life in the Emerald City by Rajiv Chandrasekaran, Green Zone follows Roy Miller (Damon), an Army officer tasked with searching for ever-elusive WMDs in post-occupation Iraq. Miller begins to question the validity of the government's intel as more and more sites turn up empty, but a tip from a friendly Iraqi (Abdalla) sets off an investigation that threatens to uncover the truth behind America's invasion of Iraq. An interesting tale of political intrigue marred by hyperactive visuals.
