Matt Damon

GREEN ZONE - Matt Damon struggles to sort fact from fiction in war-torn Baghdad, with his Bourne director Paul Greengrass ramping up the tension as the bullets fly. Awesome stuff. 5 stars.

SHUTTER ISLAND - No Leo DiCaprio/Martin Scorsese collaboration is going to be a complete fail, but this stupidly overblown tale of a missing inmate at a remote prison hospital is full of B-movie twists that hardly suit a mega-budget epic from a movie maestro. 3 stars.

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO - Gutsy thriller based on the blockbusting book. The wilds of Scandanavia has never looked more threatening as a hungry journo and a punky computer hacker join forces to track down a murderer in the snowy Swedish outback. 4 stars.

HACHI: A DOG'S TALE - Soppy but gently done story of a music professor and his faithful pet pooch. Watching Richard Gere have a bath with his four legged friend may be a bit weird but by the weepy final 20 minutes you'll be blubbing big time. 3 stars.
