Good drama but a great portrayal of a single-minded focus' affect on an individual
I walked into the movie without high expectation. We know the story, we've heard the accounts, we've lived through the events, so I was expected to kill a few hours watching an "ok" movie.
I was presently suprised that the movie could hold my attention. The story line and action was better than I expected, but what really made the movie for me was the final scene. The power of the movie is in the psychology of the character Maya. Recruited right out of highschool by the CIA and her first job ends up being a 10 year personal crusade, a single-minded goal of finding UBL. The change in the character and the reaction at the end of it all is the power of this movie.
As with any movie about soldiers in action, the language is strong, and the images are graphic, but that is reality.
