AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


A real clever concept which pans out into a nice ride.


The dialogue is not as sharp as it could have been in tense confrontations which would have added a lot of value to the picture.  On the other hand there were several moving scenes written involving the Iraqi man who serves as translator for Matt Damon's character.


Nothing outstanding from Matt Damon but he didn't do alot to hurt the film either.  The real stars were the real live Iraq and Afghanistan vets who served as the secondary military team members which added a lot of realism and truth to the scenes.


Alot of movies are being made about the middle eastern wars but this is the first I've seen questioning the shady intelligence that began the war and surveilling the tense search for WMD's.


Easy to follow with plenty of action but don't expect to be impressed by moving performances or witty dialogue.  Worth a look if you have a chance but it can wait if your busy.
