The controversy over purported weapons of mass destruction early in the Iraq War gets a dramatic spin - and, for its visceral thrills, plays loose with some of the facts - in this reteaming of Matt Damon and "Bourne"-franchise director Paul Greengrass, which uses a similar technique to tell its story.
Damon plays a military man who finds himself questioning some of his superiors, while keeping an eye out for hostile countrymen, as he seeks the alleged weapons. Greg Kinnear and Amy Ryan ("Gone Baby Gone") also star. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Damon and Greengrass; deleted scenes. *** (R: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
