We just got six new clips for Paul Greengrass’ film, Green Zone starring Matt Damon as a slightly more realistic version of his Jason Bourne character… but not that much more realistic. Once again he’s a military agent with the special ability to out smart the people he works for and kick their asses when necessary. Luckily these clips do show that there is a bit of difference between Green Zone and the Bourne series. For one, Damon’s character Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller feels a bit more “all-American” than Jason Bourne and he says things like “get your game face on.”
Overall, this could be a fun ride or it could be another run-of-the-mill war films. It’s unclear how intelligent the actual plot line is and if this is something that Greengrass and Damon were passionate about doing, or if it’s just a big, shoot um up payday. Hopefully it’s not the latter.
The film co-stars Greg Kinnear, Amy Ryan, Brendan Gleeson, Khalid Abdalla and Jason Isaacs all of which you can see in the clips below. The film’s story takes place during the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, where Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert.
Check out some of the clips below…
