Very well done movie, showing the obsession of one person. I do have questions on how factual the actual killing of Bin Laden was but the premise was there.

I came into this movie with low expectations, being more interested in how they would bring the manhunt for Bin Laden to the screen. Realistically, it's a lot of information that isn't typically "public knowledge" and they seemed to have some highly credible sources. That's pretty interesting in and of itself. How that translates to a movie is something else altogether.
Without giving anything away, the movie touches on a huge range of human emotion and literally had me struggling to face the same emotions that were brought upon by the 9/11 situation. Patriotism versus human rights, revenge versus defense. Zero Dark Thirty covered it all. In many cases I was uncomfortable during interrogation scenes or on the edge in action sequences that frankly made it feel like you were a part of the strike team. (We all know how this ends so I'm not spoiling anything).
Suspenseful and gripping, it's the way they tale us for a ride that that makes it all worth while

Really interesting look behind the scenes of an iconic world event.

You know the outcome but the movie keeps you at the edge of your seat throughout the film. It doesn’t matter if we know for sure certain aspects of the accuracy of all events, you get the idea however. The 2.5 hour movie concerned me before the movie started, but when it ended it didn’t seem like 2.5 hours. The movie not only kept moving but kept me on the edge to the end. Not for kids, and those who have issues with the language, but a must see for patriotic film goers.

Strong story line, strong and powerful acting, well developed characters, and of course the topic. This was a very enjoyable movie and my spouse and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't think I can find one wrong thing about this movie. The pace was steady and the action sequence believable. It didn't feel like I was watching Halo but a real life drama.
