Netflix’s official synopsis reads, “A U.S. Army officer uncovers a conspiracy about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, launching a crusade that creates enemies within his own military.”
Directed by Paul Greengrass and written by Brian Helgeland, Green Zone also stars Jason Isaacs (The Patriot), Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine), Igal Naor (The Honorable Woman), Said Faraj (Ghost), Nicoye Banks (12 Years a Slave), Jerry Della Salla (For Love of a Fish), Sean Huze (The Next Three Days) and Aymen Hamdouchi (War Machine).
Unfortunately, the flick only received an average score of 53 percent on Rotten Tomatoes,with an audience score of 57 percent. However, based on the fact that it’s become one of the most-watched movies on the platform in just three days, we definitely think it's worth a shot.
