Green Zone gets a trailer.

I have not read the original book and this trailer may very well not be indicitve of the final product, but this sure as heck looks like Jason Bourne goes to Iraq. I am not a Paul Greengrass fan, having disliked United 93 and loathed The Bourne Ultimatum (it's a remake of The Bourne Supremacy, but dumbed-down and sexed up). The somewhat unique editing style that served him so well in Bloody Sunday and The Bourne Supremacy has now become cliche. Besides, what exactly is going to be the big twist in this one? That (shocker) there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? If you can see only one white-knuckle thriller set in Iraq, you should still see The Hurt Locker instead. I'll gladly admit if I'm wrong on March 12th, 2010, but this feels like Body of Lies all over again.
