Very intense, well done..not sure you could call it entertaining but definitely something to see. Action at its finest. Acting at its best as well.

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.

"Zero Dark Thirty" may not be Bigelow's best film. Hopefully she still has several years of cinema ahead of her. As she's demonstrated with "Hurt Locker" and "K-19: The Widowmaker", Bigelow has a talent for putting a uniquely personal visual spin on matters military. The circumstances surrounding the hunting and death of Osama bin Laden could've been very much in danger of being co-opted for this or that agenda or mindset. So unique a battle needed an equally unique escorting to the big screen and, fortunately for us, Bigelow was able to take the event in hand and help it escape not only adoption by mediocre motives, but mediocrity in general.

I think they spent too much time on the torture. The rest of the movie was tense and suspensful and well done.
why they passed this over for an academy award is anyone's guess. Superb acting! 4 stars out of 5!

Overall, it was a good movie. It was mainly all about the intelligence gathering though and the part when it came to actually killing Usama Bin Laden only lasted about 5 mins. I wish they would have been a little bit more in depth when it came to the different searches and places that they looked for him. It's one of those movies that's only probably going to be made once, so it's def. worth going to see.
