Why do people use their reviews to make political points or critise the actions of a third party? It doesn't matter what you think about waterboarding or the CIA, you're here to review a piece of fictionalised film making to give potential buyers an opinion.
That said I really enjoyed this film. It's no spoiler to say that the actual attack on Bin Laden's compound occupies the final half hour of a two and a half hour movie and when I realised how long the film was I did wonder how Katherine Bigelow was going to keep me interested.
Well she did it with a tense slow burning fuse of a movie based upon Jessica Chastain's character's obsession with killing Bin Laden. She goes from a fresh faced new recruit who turns her face away from torture to the a hard bitten professional spy. I felt her tears at the end were due to her realsing she had nothing left in her life following the success of the mission.
If your sort of movie doesn't progress beyong 'Die Hard' (which I love too) then you probbaly won't enjoy this film. If however you do like a good story with a superb cast performance then this could be for you.
If 'Die Hard' is the only type of movie you enjoy then don't bother fast forwarding to the end. The raid on the compound portrays professional soldiers and a job well done not gung ho trigger happy grunts.
The picture quality of the blu ray is superb and it has an excellent 5.1 audio track too.

I have a lot of respect for film makers that are prepared to be brave. A gritty straightforward "docu film" about the biggest manhunt in history. We will never know what actually happened but this is the next best thing. There are no "hoowaahh" amercanisms either - just pinpoint detail.

It does contain torture scenes but these are nowhere near as bad as what you have been lead to believe. In fact Ive seen worse on a BBC Sunday night!

Very different to the Hurt Locker but if you liked that or other political docu films you will like this. The first 5 minutes of the film are probably the most provocative..and theres nothing on screen. Your just listening....

A Classic

It's inevitable that comparisons will be drawn between Kathryn Bigelow's latest and Ben Affleck's surprise hit Argo (DVD + UV Copy), however suffice to say that as good as it is, the latter just can't match this for sheer balls-out tenacity - embodied, ironically, by Jessica Chastain's peerless CIA officer, Maya. By the film's denouement, Maya has spent her entire twelve year CIA career hunting Bin Laden, and upon her mission's eventual success (no spoiler as the film's based on real events), we see the massive sense of anti-climax through her eyes; a suitably passionate ending to a fine movie.

The film follows the true events leading up to the ultimate finding of
and subsequent killing of, the much sought after 'Al-Qaeda' leader
'Osama Bin Laden'
A desperate search that had taken ten long years.
The film brought to our screen by the writer and director of the much
acclaimed movie 'The Hurt Locker' (Kathryn Bigeloiw) which is in my
my opinion another film worth owning.
This film is often intense and frankly brutal when gathering the
information which eventually leads to the assault on 'Bin-Laden's'
Compound.
A well executed and fact based drama, an engrossing and interesting
viewing experience.......which includes scenes of graphic-violence
including 'Torture' 'Terrorist Attacks' and aftermath, along with the
violent assault on 'Bin-Laden's' compound.
A Well portrayed Drama.

My first thought was that this film would be another Yank version of glorious action, heroics and John Wayne personalities. How wrong could I have been. It is tense, fairly accurate (given the obvious secrecy surrounding the subject - killing Bin Laden), it is very moving and surprise, surprise, lacks a hero of the dimension I was expecting. There are no heroes as such. It is a fast moving, almost documentary style film. It tackles contentious CIA interrogations, exposes difficult decision making by CIA Station Personnel and even Obama himself. Well acted throughout, although I used sub-titles to catch every quick fire piece of dialogue, the film is well made, moving at a rapid pace which holds the viewer almost trance-like to the story. It outlines the hard work put in by a female CIA Field Officer whose single minded pursuit of UBL, based upon her own personal interpretation of hard intel, takes her into a world of terrorist priorities, of a decade of failure by CIA - and others - to actually pin point the target's location and finds her struggling against that pressure to put forward her own, slightly off-piste, take on intel, persuading her Chiefs that her interpretation is right and that the final location of UBL has been determined as a result. However, the location cannot be 100% correct and the subsequent decision/chance taking by CIA Chiefs and even The President, with the huge associated risks of error/failure to successfully complete any incursion into foreign lands and take UBL, are extremely well replicated. This is a great film by any standards of modern filmaking and deserves to be seen by all. Excellent.
