I‘m a big fan of the Bourne movies. This movie is the same idea but Matt Damon is a chief in the Army in Iraq looking for WMDs. It’s a good reminder to be critical in your thinking - don’t be naive.
The movie cost $100 million to make plus $40 million of marketing. Only grossed $95 million. That’s the definition of a financial flop. I found it to be an entertaining and thought provoking movie. I’m putting it in my “Bourne rotation.”
The tickler about the movie:
Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Matt Damon) and his team of inspectors are on a mission in 2003 to find Iraq's reported stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. Traveling from one dangerous site to another, Miller and his team fail to find any chemical agents or other weapons. Instead, they discover an elaborate coverup in which the most-elusive weapon is truth.
