  • Matt Damon's New Liberal Movie

    Matt Damon has never shied away from choosing politically themed movies, from 'Syriana' in 2005 to 'The Good Shepherd' in 2006 to the 2010 thriller 'Green Zone.' Already, 'Green Zone' is being attacked by some online commentators as a movie of American guilt, supposedly representative of Damon's left-leaning politics.

    "[It] sounds like another boring anti-American diatribe," one user ranted recently on a Collider.com message board discussing the film's release. "When is Hollywood going to make a film that has at least a modicum of original material and perhaps something intelligent that requires just a minimum of thought?"

    From a commenter on another board: "Another Anti-American movie cloaked in explosions, since the last ten-plus movies bombed in '08. Hollyweird has figured out the way to draw in the audience by appealing to the blow 'em up real good crowd to pull in the Benjamins, while hocking their nutty ideas in the background."

    'Green Zone' hits theaters March 12, 2010, and co-stars Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson and Amy Ryan. The movie is directed by Paul Greengrass ('Bourne Supremacy' and 'Ultimatum'), is based on the book 'Imperial Life in the Emerald City' by Washington Post writer Rajiv Chandrasekaran, and the screenplay is written by Brian Helgeland ('L.A. Confidential').

    'Green Zone' is set in early Iraq war, when, according to film press notes, "no one could be trusted and every decision could detonate unforeseen consequences." Damon plays CIA Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller, appointed a team of Army investigators to find chemical agents and weapons of mass destruction stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Miller searches for answers amid faulty and covert intelligence. In the balance hangs a rogue regime's status, or war escalating in an unstable region. The search is actually an elaborate cover-up.

    The real-life Green Zone is a 10-square-kilometer enclosed area inside central Baghdad taken over by Americans after the 2003 Iraqi invasion. It is the hub and a symbol for international presence in Iraq -- possibly contributing to the movie's hot-button reaction. The Green Zone was passed to Iraqi control in Jan. 2009.

    So if i got this right, he's looking for weapons of mass destruction/small arms and when he doesn't find them, he turns his sights on the "lying American Government"

    What do you guys think?

        For real, when does a conservative tale ever hit the big screen..? lol. Seems like every actor/actress has to give their political input now days too, like I care. Although it seems the youth of America eats it up.
