I hate to give this film a NO but both my husband and I found it tedious to watch. We really didn't learn any more than we knew before. It certainly wasn't made for pure entertainment value. It was hardly entertaining. It is a docudrama about the events leading up to the capture of Osama Bin Laden, this covers a period of about 10 years and while watching you feel like every minute of it! Also feel the filmmaker exploited the torture scenes and this will be used against our troops around the world.

This is not a documentary! Its is a great hollywood movie with all the great acting and live like special effects. A good "cops and robbers" suspence and plot. Not for the squemish.

Very long, disjointed movie...all over the board and could not understand the point. The last 25 minutes were interesting but it took way too long to get to the last 25 minutes.

Movie kept me captived even though I knew the circumstances. I was rooting for Maya and excited for the known outcome. Afterwards, it raised many questions and concerns about our tactics in the anti-terrist battles.

Kathryn Bigelow has scored again (“The Hurt Locker”) with this meticulous, intricate scenario of the decade long hunt and slaying of the world’s most sought after terrorist, Osama Bin Laden; she is religious in depicting the reality of the quest and CIA operative “Maya’s” intransigent dedication to finding this heinous villain. Jessica Chastain gives a quietly explosive performance as a woman whose vision and mission will not be swayed or felled by mere government officials; Maya’s entire career has been informed by the crusade to capture/death of the madman who visited upon the Unites States its worst massacre and the demise of a freedom so pure, so entrenched in democracy, never to be tasted again...
