New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
The cast is strong, and Damon is a dependable center for all this, a classic American good guy wanting to know what's rotten and why.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt

San Francisco Chronicle

Nonsense

By hiltd
Hated the movie. Instead of a good movie I get preached to once more. Waste of time and my money. If I want to get lectured about the evils of the army I'll read the Huffington Post....

Brown Zone

I had high hopes for this movie and hoped for an action packed thrill ride. What I got was a 2 hour lecture on how evil the Bush administration was and how they lied about WMD's. I should have known...
