I’m not really sure who’s more obsessed with Matt Damon--director Paul Greengrass or American moviegoers. As an aspiring journalist, it is my job to be as fair and accurate as possible. Therefore, my answer to the above question is going to have to be all of the above.

Greengrass, director of “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum,” has teamed up with Damon once again for “Green Zone,” an action-packed thriller hitting U.S. theaters March 12, 2010.

Set in Baghdad during the 2003 U.S.-led occupation, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his Army team are sent to inspect the Iraqi desert in search of weapons of mass destruction. As the men wriggle through one hazardous site after another and search for deadly chemical agents, they realize that something else might be discovered instead. The men stumble upon a cover-up, which inverts the purpose of their whole mission and leads Miller to hunt through faulty intelligence on foreign soil for answers. What answers does he find? Will the answers clear a rogue regime or will they escalate the war to a whole new threshold they never thought possible?

As the trailer itself suggests, it might seem that this is just another typical war movie created to generate huge box-office numbers because people might hope it's a little different. Given the quality of the trailer, the cast and the director, I might jump on that bandwagon and believe the same. There appears to be a hidden meaning here, and that's that the best weapon in life might just be the truth.
