Very well done movie, showing the obsession of one person. I do have questions on how factual the actual killing of Bin Laden was but the premise was there.

The basic theme of this movie is revenge, wrapped in the gift papers of American patriotism and the new ethic of female machoism. It is seriously flawed, in spite of all the superlative hype. I would start with the ending, which as an add-on (due to recent current events) is too long and not climatic or creative. Maya, the protagonist, is well played though her striking beauty makes her somewhat unbelievable as a CIA operative trying to blend in another culture. This movie purports to be realistic and near journalistic in its scope, but several near laughable scenes of Maya referring to herself as a m----- f-----, Maya on the tarmac alone with the helicopters, Maya opening the body bag, seem to lean towards a superhero movie on the order of Wonder Woman. Finally, although there are beautiful scenes of life in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the movie contributes virtually nothing to understanding the fabric of those cultures.

Strong story line, strong and powerful acting, well developed characters, and of course the topic. This was a very enjoyable movie and my spouse and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't think I can find one wrong thing about this movie. The pace was steady and the action sequence believable. It didn't feel like I was watching Halo but a real life drama.
