Historically significant but tedious

I cannot say that this film is "good". Being based on a true story makes it significant, but also tedious and too long. Tha acting is competent but not outstanding . I feel like, because it covers such sensitive material, people are judging it to be better than it is. If had not been based on truth it never would have been a movie. I understand the director's quest, and it is a noble one, but the result is not satisfying.

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!

I enjoyed this movie. I thought it was made well and told the story well. Even though it's based on real events and you might know what's going to happen, I still found it very suspenseful. I could see why Jessica Chastain has won best actress awards so far. You'll get your money's worth on this movie.

Confused at times I just viewed this film

The middle eastern names rendered ms a little confused at times. Especially when they would take on a different nom de Guerre. I am just not used to them, so the fault lies within. But the pace and the story telling we're very good. Stay gold Marty

A well crafted story

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.
