This movie is incredible. Don't worry about how long it is...You get sucked into the story in about ten minutes. (The opening scene lets you know they aren't screwing around)
Jessica Chastain is amazing. You can feel her getting more committed with each passing event.
The closing scene is unlike any of the battle sequences I've watched before. It's about as real as it gets--WOW.
Go See This Movie!!

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!
