Wow, that’s realistic April 4, 2010Posted by Peter Hornby in personal.
“The Green Zone” is cerainly a noisy movie. Lots of flash and bang, especially in a surround-sound movie theatre, and gratuitous use of the hand-held camera. It took us quite a while to realise that the shaking we were experiencing an hour or so in wasn’t actually a cinematic effect but a 7.2 earthquake.
In case you’re wondering, we’re almost real Californians now. We left the auditorium, but went back in when the shaking stopped.
