Very intriguing movie with characters that reflect our history pefectly. Deep and interesting back story with a satisfying ending. Not a movie that I would see again for a while, but definitely one of m absolute favorites.

Not So Great

Beginning torture scenes and the final attack are pretty interesting but the rest is just about the redhead badgering everyone to continue in her direction. I should have just waited for the DVD rental.

Good, but you know the ending...

Well worth the ticket price....but not the best picture, I think Lincoln is the best. Good suspenseful buildup to the climax. Solid acting but as one reviewer said Jessica Chastain's character must have had a makeup-hair stylist at all times - not quite as gritty as reall life I would bet. I think everyone would enjoy the behind the scenes look at this event.

Great acting, needs editing- 20 minutes too long

Acting was great. Opening scenes of torture may be accurate, but they are repulsive. Movie is 20 minutes too long and that's all there is to it. It needed editing: too much development of some characters and it bogged down in the middle. By the time the action kicked in, I had been squirming in my chair for 20 minutes. Intellectual dialogue does not have to = droning on and on.

This movie is incredible. Don't worry about how long it is...You get sucked into the story in about ten minutes. (The opening scene lets you know they aren't screwing around) Jessica Chastain is amazing. You can feel her getting more committed with each passing event. The closing scene is unlike any of the battle sequences I've watched before. It's about as real as it gets--WOW. Go See This Movie!!
