Elevator Pitch A warrant officer leading a team of US soldiers looking for WMD in Baghdad, but failing to find any, becomes involved in a search under the radar, with the assistance of a CIA man in the eponymous Green Zone, and a local who knows his way round the squares and alleys of the old city.
Content Loads of tension in the dark streets, with moderate violence both in the prisons and out in the city.
A View I really liked this despite the glaringly obvious plot. The realistic feel of what it must have been like out there is well conveyed. But I am a fan of both the director and the star.
