Nobody liked this movie when it was called "Body of Lies
This is the most revealing trailer yet and thankfully we're given a heads up as to what the story might really be about. Hollywood will look for cover with the excuse that "Green Zone
" is based on a true story
, but we all know which "true stories" Leftist Hollywood cherry picks in order to fulfill the demands of an anti-American narrative. For example, the true story of 100,000-plus Americans risking their lives to liberate and protect from terrorists people they've never met is one "true story" we'll see in hell first.
Everything you'd expect from director Paul Greengrass and Damon is here, including that goddamn shaky-cam (it's not saying the Lord's name in vain if you mean it). Damon's character is the protagonist and he's there to do good
but it's not the terrorists who are the antagonists getting in his way ... no, it's The United States of America
personified by the Greg Kinnear character.
Look fast for my favorite part of the trailer at the 1:42 mark after Kinnear appears to order Damon's assassination. When Kinnear's confronted in the next scene suddenly he's sporting that old "liberal tell" identifying the bad guys in leftist films: the lapel flag!
In the comments, Hollywood's few remaining water-carriers should please explain why an industry we're told is more interested in making profits than making political points would green-light the umpteenth anti-Iraq movie after all umpteen that came before flopped miserably.
Once again I want to make clear that this post violates the rule which only allows Leftist critics and film writers to speculate about an upcoming film before seeing it. I knew that before putting fingers to keyboard and am fully braced for the consequences.
