Rating: The Good – 64.5
Genre: Action, War
Duration: 115 mins
Director: Paul Greengrass
Stars: Matt Damon, Jason Isaacs, Greg Kinnear

Paul Greengrass’ film was done no favours by tagging it as “Bourne goes epic” because this film is not as epic as nor anyway related to any of the Bourne instalments. It is, however, an interesting attempt to address the complexities of the most recent US-Iraq conflict as they appeared on the ground. It follows a military team led by Chief Miller (Matt Damon) who are responsible for searching possible WMD sites in the early days of the US invasion. When his team continues to find no sign of said weapons, he takes it upon himself to find out why. As you would expect from Greengrass the action scenes are well handled (although coming from the man who gave us two of the Bourne films they are perhaps underwhelming) and the acting on all fronts is decent. There are some silly bits but overall this is a satisfying modern war film.
