I found the movie so-so, but only because I wasn't expecting a documentary-esque treatment.
I waited too long to watch Zero Dark Thirty.
I first considered hitting up theaters in mid January to catch this in theaters but I couldn't find anyone who shared my interest in seeing the movie. So I waited until now and watched it on-demand.
And the best word I can use to describe my experience with the movie is disappointment.
Now I would like to give credit to the direction of the movie and say that I can appreciate the movie for the quality as a piece of work, but I was expecting more of a movie and less of a documentary, if you know what I mean. I was hoping for some drama -- a hope not fulfilled.
I found the film to be very slow in certain portions and dare I say, predictable. Now, obviously the movie is going to be predictable because we all know how it ends, so I would attribute this negative feeling to all the positive praise generated in the media about the film.
I guess I got my expectations too high, and ultimately, found myself disappointe
