I thought it was fascinating to get a glimpse into CIA operative and the al queda organizations. It just goes to show how clueless we are here in the homeland. I was captivated the entire movie. I did not want to miss a single word they were saying. Thank God I knew how it ended with bin Laden's death, because the mission was heart thumping! I had to keep reminding myself "they get him" - it was that riveting! I'd see it again!

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.

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.

The last scene is the crux in describing this very troubled and enigmatic figure.Very absorbing character study. One must be very alert to follow the various turns. Worth the effort.

I was excited to see Zero Dark Thirty after loving Hurt Locker. The two are similar, in they deal with the realities of war, yet I found myself lost in many places - the story was hard to follow, despite knowing the ending. Maya, the main character had no friends, family, nor did we see the emotional impact of what she endured for 12 years, except that in some scenes she looked tired. I did think the final scene where they killed Bin Laden was very tense and well done. One felt as if you were there on the ground with them and unsure that they were going to make it out.
