Having made two excellent Bourne movies together, Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon reunite for an Iraq War thriller which doesn't work quite so well.

As Damon searches for WMD, the chase sequences have enough of Bourne's helter-skelter energy to be worth seeing, but the black-and-white moralising doesn't belong in a story about real, recent events. Any film which castigates its villains for distorting the truth to make a point should be a bit more careful not to do the same.
