Go See It

I thought the movie was great and all. But it felt longer than it was. Of course there was also some points that just didn't add up to what had really went on and what was really used, but oh well it is just a movie.

Zero Dark Thirty

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.

Bit of a Letdown

I was a bit disappointed with this movie. I often found it lulled in certain places, the end was anticlimactic, a lot of the intelligence terminology was hard to understand, the cinematography was poorly done, and Jessica Chastain's performance was less than noteworthy. A few of the torture scenes were interesting despite being horrific, and the bombings in the beginning were well placed and effective. This wasn't a bad movie, but I don't understand why it's being nominated for any Oscars.

Didn't like the film after watching it. The movie is long and boring, pretty much we all know how the story would end on Bin Ladens fate, its always told in the news just about everyday so why make a film about it? Its pretty much for adult viewing, R rated not for children to see due to the language and violence.
