Movie excellent, video quality poor Like the title suggests I thought the movie (storyline/acting/etc.) was excellent. However the video quality in parts makes we want to complain to the people in charge of mastering the video. About half of the video looks good, as anyone would expect. While other parts and not necessarily the dark sport look just aweful. By that I mean very fuzzy. It's not the whole screen either. At times it seems to be centralized on an actors face.
This movie does an excellent job in portraying what actually happened, when our troops entered Iraq in search of those elusive WMD's (that were never found!) Another point in this movie that is dead on, is how much different agencies in the U.S. do not cooperate with one another. There have been several interviews with people is these agencies that confirmed this claim. They still to this day argue about various intel.
Overall this is a great movie that portrays truth in wartime scenarios. But don't waste your money on the Blu-ray version just yet. The video quality just isn't there to justify the extra expense.
A GREAT MOVIE IT'S A GREAT MOVIE SHOWING WHAT HAPPENED IN THE AFTERMATH OF "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" BY GW BUSH. IT'S WORTH WATCHING.Fantastic its really amazing, the picture the sound quality are really nice
and i received it in factory seal
thats all what i can say
Fiction overshadowed the Non-Fiction I expected Green Zone to track more closely to the book upon which the movie was based; "Green Zone, Imperial Life in the Emerald City", and indictment of the Paul Bremer time in Iraq. Instead the movie's focus was on Matt Damon's character and his team of WMD searchers, which was a minor part of the book. The movie perfectly captured the chaos in Iraq at the opening stages of the war as American troops captured Baghdad, and proceeded to consolidate their presence in Iraq. The handheld camera technique emphasized the way unplanned events unfold and the need to plan on the fly as obstacles present themselves. This movie probably captures the feeling of war as well as any movie. Matt Damon is excellent in his role as a chief warrant officer who takes his job seriously and knows when he is getting a lot of b.s. from his superiors. The cast is uniformly excellent and again the movie captures the tension that existed between the CIA and the Defense Department over the authenticity of the information supplied regarding WMD's in Iraq. The CIA was getting it's information from a former Iraqi general in charge of the WMD program whereas the Defense Department was getting its information from a guy code named "curveball" whom even German intelligence said was unreliable. The movie version consolidated the informant into one character, the Iraqi general. There really was a huge disconnect between the civilian political operatives as depicted by the character Poudstone and the military grunts depicted by Damon. Donald Rumsfeld set up is own intelligence operation because he did not trust CIA intelligence or because the CIA was not telling him what he wanted to hear. The movie made it perfectly clear that the CIA and the Defense Department did not get along. I highly recommend this movie since it was not only entertaining but at least 50-75% true account of what happened during that period of time in Iraq.Terrible quality- worse than Std DVD The video quality of the blu-ray is grainy and terrible. Worsen than a bad quality DVD. Really not worth buying this DVD
