Don't go in expecting full-on action the whole time

I heard a review that said this was not an action film and instead was more of a suspense drama. It might have been partly due to me being tired and sleepy prior to the movie but I found the first hour or so to be a bit slow. Jessica Chastain was great throughout the movie though. To me, this movie is like Saving Private Ryan; "the good stuff" is at the end.

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.

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.

The writer of this movie did the best they could writing the events that actually happened. I'm sure they've not added a few things in there but it was the best that they could do in telling the story of this event.

Being involved with the Army on a day to day basis, I interact with these fine men and women. Parts of the movie made you shudder, cheer, and think. Well done.
