What can be said about this movie...It is very well done. I was surprised how difficult some of the scenes were to watch as I felt a great sadness in seeing what was done to end a ten year hunt. The movie is not an action packed movie like Act of Valor but rather an attempt to show Americans what happens in the world of intelligence and anti-terrorism. Like I said this movie will strike a nerve even if you are not naive to tactics of intelligence gathering but I felt that everything was portrayed in a way that could be understood.
Overall a good movie with outstanding actors that was visually striking.

I enjoyed very much how the two women tracked down the information and painstakingly built a case while the torture and hard interrogations yielded either wrong or no information. It was like a detective story unfolding. The acting was wonderful and the actual raid and escape the last half hour of the film were hair raising even through you knew the outcome. Very good film, well directed. I recommend it.

I would expect more from this subject and from this director...
But it turns out a boring and long stretched story without appealing characters and engaging plot. This story should have been a pinnacle of all anti-terrorist dramas, instead the only thing you deduce from it is that BinLaden was found by chance and without much effort.
Considering that everyone knows the ending of this story, the only thing what attracts the viewer is HOW it was done.. But this film fails short from telling about it in a engaging and interesting way.

If you can look past all the controversy surrounding this movie and just take it for what it is, you won't be disappointed. You feel as if you're part of the action and even though it's no secret how it ends, the suspense lies in the how-you-get-to-the-end. Very well done!

This movie was realistic in the showing on how the Intelligence Industry really work's. Sorry if some get bored, but it entails long hours of lots of superfluous garbage to find what you are looking for. I think the Director did a fantastic job of showing the BS that takes place and also of someone trying to take the credit for some other persons work. Overall, I believe that it was a Great Movie!!!!!!!!!
