Zero Dark Thirty - Best Movie of the Year!

By Jeannecon
Written March 28, 2017
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!

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!

Must Go!

Zero Dark Thirty was great. It captured my attention from the very beginning and was constantly intense until the end. Even though I had read and/or knew about a lot of the events they were mentioning in the years leading up to May 2011, it kept me intrigued throughout the whole movie. I would definitely recommend that you go see it on the big screen as the last 30 minutes, a lot of which are in the first person view, make you feel as if you were there yourself.

A bit long for my taste and the story line was not s compelling as advertised. Great insights on CIA and tenacity of the field agent that found him. Ending was disappointing.
