If you are a student of our efforts to track down and kill those responsible for the worst act of terrorism on American soil you should go see this move!

It is dark, it does show the hell our people go through. Makes you realize that there are poeple in our government who do care. Acting is excellent.

This film is not for everyone. Those believing that the CIA and other such agencies of our government adhere to the restrictions from the statements that "we don't participate in enhanced interrogation tactics" might be offended by the scenes of such torture in the first 1/2 hour of the film. If you enjoy the Showtime series "Homeland" you should enjoy this film. The last 1/2 hour is the most exciting and some have complained about it being the only "worthwhile-watching" portion of the movie but I found all the actions leading up to the raid and capture very exciting. While I understand the reason for the feeling that we "must get bin Laden", I'm still not sure I understand or agree with the reason we are active in that culture and I have lots of admiration for those who serve there.

The only "drama" in this slick, flat movie came from torture, military invasion, and surprise bombings. The characters were one dimensional, the story was incomplete, and the filmmakers seemed unaware of the moral and political complexity of their subject. The controversy surrounding the film as to whether torture "works" speaks to the banality of the film and moral corruption of our debate about torture. If torture "works" -- does that make torture ok?

I hate to give this film a NO but both my husband and I found it tedious to watch. We really didn't learn any more than we knew before. It certainly wasn't made for pure entertainment value. It was hardly entertaining. It is a docudrama about the events leading up to the capture of Osama Bin Laden, this covers a period of about 10 years and while watching you feel like every minute of it! Also feel the filmmaker exploited the torture scenes and this will be used against our troops around the world.
