Story Of True Retaliation

Movie Review: "Zero Dark Thirty" (2012)

When on May 2nd 2011 the assassination of Osama Bin Laden (1957-2011) had been announced through the administration of the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama, Academy-Award winning journalist-turning-screenwriter Mark Boal takes on an event-horizon occasion to present a screenplay toward a second time collaboration with Director Kathryn Bigelow, who had been searching further cinema-worthy content despite directing a TV-drama for HBO (Home Box Office) in season 2010/2011 after her surprisingly-received Best Director Academy-Award for the 2008-shot "The Hurt Locker" on an Iraq-invaded operations of U.S. army military elite bomb squad.

Columbia Pictures presents this CIA-operative thriller also-produced by Megan Ellison for production company Annapurna Pictures, where Director Kathryn Bigelow relies completely on her leading actress Jessica Chastain, playing the character of Maya as task-forcing CIA-undercover agent on the constant as determined run to fight and convince Washington DC-representing officials in sparely decorated rooms of quickly-engaged conference meetings, when further supporting roles, including Mark Strong as range-playing hands-on-table crushing CIA-research team leader George, Jason Clarke as interrogation technique of water-boarding performing character of Dan in opening scenes of controversy, when a highlighted accurately-represented sequence of title-justifying raids-before-dawn in heavy state-of-the-art U.S. military gear portrayals by actors Joel Edgerton and Chris Pratt performing as members of a Navy Seals squad team engaging onto a secret family-living of the notorious terrorist's hide-out; a fortress-like compound out of plain concretes with no paint somewhere in rural-Pakistan-mimicking desert exterior set, when cinematographer Greig Fraser delivers digitally-received visuals in high-sensoring contrasts of striking light sources in the dark, fading shadows of emotionally-prepared cameos of Middle Eastern children of innocence after blown-off metal doors under night-visioned sparks of fire.

The 150-Minute-Editorial by William Goldenberg keeps its pace, when Academy-Award-nominated Jessica Chastain's interpretation of Maya carries the majority of scenes toward a fulminate mesmerizing premise close-up shot by the end of beat-twisting "Zero Dark Thirty" to such an extent of staying gripped in the spectator's mind as realistic central intelligence thriller with the previously-mentioned military action highlighted scene that prevails truth to the core of an news-spreading event of historic event striking victory by the U.S. government.

Average as a whole, and sub-par for Kathryn Bigelow

As someone who was working (and lived) in lower Manhattan, I have a different viewpoint for this film, just as all people who were living in NYC do when the WTC was destroyed.

Everything was much more palpable. As thousands of other people did, I lost a very close friend (an FDNY Captain) who was inside Tower 1.

As far as the film goes, I have no thoughts as far as morality and torture issues are depicted. We all know anything just about anything (within reason) would be done to capture and/or kill bin Laden. I do care about the quality of the film goes, as I am a very big fan of Kathryn Bigelow and Jessica Chastain. Unfortunately, I got very tired of seeing Maya write down how many days had gone by, over and over, ad infinitum. I believe many people were miscast. Also, for some reason I cannot really point to, the film just didn't do much for me. Perhaps I was sick of hearing about it., having lived through so much of it, so close to my heart.

Other than what I already mentioned, what I remember the most is the burnt plastic smell which permeated lower Manhattan for weeks, and numerous other seemingly innocuous things that only residents who were there can relate to.

BTW, bin Laden was killed on my birthday.

Just skip this bore

I had a feeling this movie may be be overrated because of what it is about, but maybe such a high rating and metascore could mean that its a good time nonetheless. i hoped for something more to it than just depiction of events. I was wrong. This movie is not a good time at all. It is just boring and it does not make you care for characters. Did not buy Jessica's character. Imagine going to this movie without knowing what 9/11 is, there would literally be no reason to watch till the end.
