CHIEF WARRANT OFFICER ROY MILLER IS DONE FOLLOWING ORDERS.
Shortly after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Matt Damon) and his team are busy trying to find WMD stashes, but the locations are empty and Miller smells a rat… Welcome to the Iraq War, Jason Bourne style. This very loose adaptation of the excellent Rajiv Chandrasekaran book uses some of its fact-based elements to show how naive and jingoistic the American planning was ahead of the war, but the filmmakers do so in the context of a somewhat simplistic action movie. Still, very high production values and Paul Greengrass gets one adrenaline going in a few sequences.
