"Bourne goes epic" is very misleading to those who don't realise this isn't a Bourne film.
I think anyone daft enough to think this is a Bourne movie deserves to be disappointed
All in all, I glad I passed on this one
Having studied the front and back of this steel, I have determined that my favourite part of it is actually... the spine.
The text vomit on the front it is too OTT and ruins what otherwise could have been better artwork than the regular amaray case. The back is a little crammed too. I prefer steels that lack all that and go with the unique, minimal/simple approach like District 9, Knowing and 2012.
I've still yet to see it. Might be giving it a spin tonight. Eager to see how this stacks against the other crop of modern war themed films.
No inside artwork AGAIN.
The Hut managed to keep their 100% record up with the dented steelbooks when it arrived this morning..... looks like it'll be going back tomorrow (as happened with Wolfman) so that they can issue a replacement
Tbh, that might be the problem - there have just be too many of these films over the last few years.
Don't get me wrong, Green Zone is nothing like a bad film, and I'm sure many people will enjoy it, I just found it a bit
+1. Not terrible, just not very good either.
Received my now and it actually looks better in the flesh so to speak.
Got mine in the post this morning from Play (no dings or dents) and will fire it up tonight.
With regards to the "Bourne Goes Epic" quote, to be fair this was said by Empire magazine and Universal would've been mad not to use that quote to help sell this film to those people who have seen the Bourne films but maybe hadn't heard about this one.
Agreed,mine hasn't arrived yet but i did have a good look at it in my local HMV, pity about the reviews on it but it's not too bad.
Watched 10 mins of this yesterday, looked pretty good from what I saw
Had the Bourne movies never been made, perhaps a lot more people would've enjoyed it.
Got the steelboook which looks pretty nice except for the lack of inner cover art.
Thought the movie was a bit dull.
Though it was very good, very action packed, decent chases, sounded awesome. This is a keeper for me
Got round to watching this on saturday night and I'm glad I didn't listen to the bad reviews. I thoroughly enjoyed this - far better imo to The Hurt Locker (but I bet this doesn't get as many Oscar nominations) I thought Matt damon was better than Jeremy Rinner in THH
The action sequences were good without being OTT and the story was gripping (with THH I found myself looking at the time all of the time)
So for me
Film - 8/10
PQ - 8/10
AQ - 9/10
Glad I took the decision to buy this as a steelbook as well.
Watched this on Saturday, thought it was a good film but also thought was strange when the graininess disappeared and reappeared on the same scene.
All in all glad I brought this steelbook
I noticed that too. There was another part in the movie where half the screen was grain infested and the other half wasn't. What the ****? I can't remember the exact point in the film (even though I only watched it last night ), but I remember only Damon and Gleeson were in the shot talking some ******** about WMD.
Yes, I posted about the grain vanishing in the main film thread.
Did anybody also notice loads of horizontal lines during some of the heavy grain scenes?
Looked like bits of Public Enemies.
That really is a pain - sure we spend £18 on a premium title and we can't get even basic artwork
Couldn't believe that either and was quite disappointing that someone allowed this to happen.
which one would you buy the Australian one or the UK one for Greenzone
Have you a link to aussie version? Not seen it, I think german releases for me though.
If the Aussie one is the JBhifi exclisive then personally i would go for that over the UK one, the back look superb and it has none of the aweful Empire text on the front
The soon to be released german version also seem to be missing the empire text, so depending on cost might be a good compromise.
Are JBHiFi customs friendly
Pics of german steel up at br.com, looks great, no unecessary writing on cover and no rating logo
Puts the UK one to shame does that... I want one and for €12.99 too from a certain shop in Germany (not online though)
