The combo of Damon (actor) and Greengrass (director) comes up with a good thriller/war film but not one of those stunning must watch again films in my view. Even the best of the 'Bourne' films was the first, '..... Identity' directed by Doug Liman not Greengrass, so I see this as a 'comfortable' collaboration between the two who obviously know how to deliver a good thriller spiced with action and with Greengrass' trade mark gritty photography and moving camerawork that gives an action film that certain feel.
Nothing looks stage bound with this work, clever cinematography that brings alive the aftermath of the invasion of Iraq and certainly reminded me of the news footage of the time, 2003.

Matt Damon is solid without being outstanding. He's not playing Jason Bourne so fair enough. But he holds everything together and Greengrass allows Damon the central role that he did in his 'Bourne' partnership with nobody else allowed much of a look in which is a shame as Brendan Gleeson could have run away with the film had his role been expanded. I could say the same for the bad guys played by Greg Kinnear and Jason Isaacs but they too were not allowed expansion of their characters ---- only my humble opinion but often a film benefits from a well rounded villain to counter the good guy with high moral values ---- Kinnear's corrupt warmonger and Isaacs' Special Forces killer were ideal to balance the plot but were fitfully used.

110 minutes film duration, English subtitles for the hearing impaired, bonus features are very good.
Not an anti-war film but certainly an anti-Iraqi War film. Weapons Of Mass Destruction (or the total absence of them) are at the centre of the plot. The film could so easily have been played as a political conspiracy but it veers into the action thriller genre. Certainly well worth a watch.

I'm guessing a lot of the bad reviews are Americans who don't like the truth.

If you really don't want to hear that America fought an illegal war based on falsified intel, I guess the plot will turn into unintelligible gibberish to keep you in your comfort zone. Its the only reason I can think of for all the people saying it was hard to understand what was going on. Personally I was marvelling at how close it was to the truth and looking it up was not surprised to learn it was adapted from an award winning non-fiction book by an embedded journalist.

The film itself was fast paced and heavy with action. No surprise mentions of the Bourne series, other than the lead actor, the director and composer were from the Bourne team. It could well have been a prequel to the Bourne series if the timing had worked out.

Bottom line is if you can handle the truth you won't be disappointed.

This story is a very realistic view. The war in Afghanistan is very much out of view for most people and for most people there daily lives just go on the same day after day so to see an adaptation of what life is like for many ordinary people in Afghanistan it really opened my eyes to what is really going on over there.

Very confused storyline barely held together and most of it was misdirected macho BS. I give it two, because if you've had a few beers and you don't really care what's going on, I suppose you could watch it and enjoy it for the blood and guts.

Superb action thriller
Verified purchase
Before I lay the praise on this movie I wud like to get the negative task of criticising this movie out of the way first: during my initial viewing of this movie i found it was too dark to fully comprehend/decipher wat was going on during the last third or so. however, i will say that it didn't bother me at all during my second viewing. Now, one word Paul Greengrass. Absolute genius. This film features yet another terrific turn by matt damon and a director at the pinnacle of his career. sorry i can't really think of anything else to write, other than that i became so immersed in what was going on it kind of felt like a (thrilling) documentary to me and i dont know how to comment on a film this good without doing it a disservice. my only wish is that Damon n greengrass someday return to the bourne franchise...we live in hope.

Tedious at best, verging on awful
Verified purchase
Pretty tedious, I fast forwarded a lot of it. It's kind of movie making with Lego blocks - 3mins of explosions, 2mins shouting and lots of pained expressions, etc, plus the plot comes out of a junior high classroom. I paid £3.45 to watch it. I'm not asking for my money back but I'd advise keep your three quid, there's got to be a better use for it!

typical Matt Damon brilliance
Verified purchase
I make no secret of the fact that I am a huge Damon fan. He's just so right in this sort of roll.
I'd seen this film once before but it was even better watching it again, an I got a lot more out of it the second time and understood more what was going on.

Lots of tense moments, intreague and action but not too 'gung ho' as is sometimes the case with American Action Movies.

As with the Bourne trilogy, this is another film that is worth watching again and again.
