The most accurate account we will ever see!!! I was blown away by just how intense and realistic the film was. Watching the end through the night vision goggles was intense and real, I could truly feel the intensity that Obama must have felt watching it in real life.
I dont know why some people are going off about the torture scenes, thats real life! War cannot be candy coated in a movie like this, compared to what they did to us its a slap on the wrist.
The casting was pure perfection! No one tried to steal the screen, everyone was there to help tell the story.
Im reading alot of reviews saying it was boring, yea at some points the talking slows the movie but if you hold on it leads to one hell of an ending!
The hardest thing for me was in the first few minutes they played 911 calls from 9/11, im not sure if they are the real ones but the ones you can make out are chilling.
Its a must see film though. Loved it

Good movie!!! Great outline and historical context, but it's kinda slow and drags on a bit. The Hurt Locker by the same director was a PERFECT movie and is my all time favorite movie, so then again I had very high hopes and Jeremy Renner is the man!! Wouldn't say it's a must see but definitely check it out if you have the time and money :)

I understand why Argo won the Critics Choice award for Best Director/Picture. There was a tension and heart throughout that was missing in Zero Dark Thirty. It was a good film though and worth seeing to remember the men and woman who die in the name of Terrorism and the people who keep us safe.

This is an important movie for all American's to see. It was well done and captured the daily sacrifices our service men and women make on our behalf daily. Kudos to the hard working men and women at the Central Intelligence Agency!

I loved this movie. I got I exactly what I wanted - the story from the CIA's point of view. All the acting was wonderful. Jessica Chastain is a talented young woman and I look forward to seeing her grow. I was worried that the torture scenes might have been too much for me but they weren't. I thought what I watched on Scandal on network television Thursday night was worse than what they showed in Zero Dark Thirty. So for those who are squeamish like me, the torture scenes weren't unbearable. I thought this movie was terrific. I read other reviews and saw some people thought it was a little long. I didn't mind it. It was fact-based and did good job of telling the story.
