Matt is a very unreliable soldier, and the film once again shows the strength of America, which is the theme of the film.

As we all know, the duty of a soldier is to obey. If a small sergeant chief and a squad leader think about why we are fighting and what is the meaning of the war when a war is about to take place, then this battle will not be fought, and it will simply be a matter of admitting defeat. So, as an American soldier, even if Bush Jr. told you plainly that we fought Iraq for its oil and local superiority control in the Middle East, and Saddam, this old boy, is very disobedient, we have to kill him, As a soldier, you still have to occupy the land you should occupy and destroy the enemy you should destroy. A qualified Delta Assault Soldier should be a professional, accurate, killing machine without asking why, but after all, a Soldier is not a machine. After taking off his military uniform, a Soldier is actually no different from a Politician. They are all people who can think.

The military is the most important and direct force for safeguarding national sovereignty and striving for national interests. And the country, stripped of all its grand-sounding adjectives, is nothing more than a large and small interest group. Small countries have sparse populations, low-quality soldiers and backward equipment. But a big country like the United States has far more military power than other countries. Some people say that they attacked Iraq to find weapons of mass destruction and then defend world peace. This is actually not much different from the Japanese army when they said that they were looking for lost soldiers and invaded China. Going back a little further, Daqin blew ashes more than a thousand years ago. Extinguishing Yan, the reason is that your crown prince finds someone to assassinate our king. We usually skip class and skip work and turn our eyes is an excuse, not to mention these important matters related to national interests. The core of the essence is only the strength of the country, and other miscellaneous things are empty.

So it is said that the United States used such an unreliable excuse to take down Iraq and support a puppet government, and the film traces back to us such a war. There are other advanced military equipment, the military literacy of soldiers, and the shameless + wrangling ability of politicians. All in all, it shows how powerful America is. That's the gist of the movie. And Matt, a conscientious but unprofessional soldier, is just a pretext to subtly show us the comprehensive strength of the United States.

The use of chasing and wartime shots is Paul Greengrass's specialty, and the Green Zone is also used in pure love. Although there is no plot that makes people involuntarily concentrate on the whole plot, but generally speaking, you can appreciate such a skilled film language. This movie is also worth watching.

As for the truth, an unreliable soldier like Matt has appeared in the U.S. military. He disobeyed the orders of his superiors, and even brought his own small group to the back of his top leader. What more truth do you want to know. In my opinion, the only highlight of this film, apart from the expressiveness of the picture, is that it uses a fresh way to promote the strength of the director's own country, rather than the old-fashioned praise of virtue. This is worth learning from Chinese films.

    If a Chinese director makes such a film, it is estimated that the world will disappear immediately.

    For interest groups, the fuse of war can be made by themselves. This is evident from the history of any major war. It is a pity that the peace of a country and the basic right to subsistence of the people have been sacrificed for the sake of oil.
