Well worth the ticket price....but not the best picture, I think Lincoln is the best. Good suspenseful buildup to the climax. Solid acting but as one reviewer said Jessica Chastain's character must have had a makeup-hair stylist at all times - not quite as gritty as reall life I would bet. I think everyone would enjoy the behind the scenes look at this event.

absolutely spot-on. for brainiacs and those who appreciate the real thing, not Hollywood. Jessica is terrific and so are her co-stars. Exquisite diretion and editing. A big four thumbs up!

This movie is as good as other fans and critics say that it is. I have trouble normally with movies this long but not this one. It is so well written and directed that there was no concept of time passing. Deeply engrossing ! Acting by all concerned is award worthy.

The movie starts off immediately with a black out, replaying 911 calls for
9/11, you are drawn in and continue with years of work by multiple persons,
the movie illustrates the painstaking, anguishing decisions made by these
persons, and while a death is never for glory, it reminds the public "freedom"
is not free. Well done.

Despite knowing the outcome, this movie remained gripping throughout. It is beyond me why Kathryn Bigalow did not receive a Best Director nomination. Everyone should see this film!
