Green Zone

A good companion piece to The Hurt Locker, but different in focus. Green Zone is more of a geo-political thriller confined to a small geo. Matt Damon is in full Jason Bourne mode as an Army officer chasing down WMDs and then chasing evidence of a conspiracy, but the movie is a little late to the party. All you have to do is look at a newspaper to realize that no one is being prosecuted for starting the Iraqi occupation under false pretenses - the movie's conspiracy - so you kind of have to enjoy modern war movies for their own sake to truly enjoy Green Zone.
