Kyle Smith says its an atrocious piece of anti-American clap-trap:
There are moments that we’re supposed to cheer because our soldiers are getting shot down- but it’s okay because they’re evildoers at worst or stooges at best who are trying to kill the one guy in the country who can prevent an insurgency from taking root.
The plot concerns a Pentagon intel analyst who decides to kill an Iraqi general in a covert CYA maneuver. So just to recap:
- Pentagon the villain
- US soldiers are dupes
- Insurgency caused by America (not Iran or al qaeda)
- Matt Damon is going to blow the lid off it!
Does Matt Damon realize that a lot of people around the world are going to actually believe this? Of course he does.
What a tool.
