Great Perspective and excellent story
This is definitely not as action packed as some may think. It would be a pretty tough task to make a 15 minute raid into a 2.5 hour movie. So if you are expecting an action movie, look elsewhere.
That said, this was a great movie. The way the story progresses over 10 years and the way you get to know a couple of the key characters in the movie is done very well. It does a great job of showing the chronology of things and connecting the dots. I'm not sure how much Hollywood fluff is involved in the movie, I'm sure only a couple dozen people in this country can truly attest to that, but if this movie was 90% accurate, that would be awesome. The persistence of a single case manager in the CIA who made it her career to hunt down UBL, fighting through bureaucracy, sexism, and all other road blocks is amazing. The tactics, language, and equipment employed during the raid were also extremely accurate.
Definite must see if you are at all interested in the chain of events.
