For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama Bin Laden.

Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history's greatest manhunt for the world's most dangerous man.

The secret of a great film is although we know how it ends it keeps us on the edge of our seats. As we know this is as close to facts as possible of how the hunt for the worlds most wanted man ended. In Binladen's case not very well. Director Kathryn Bigelow leaves no stone unturned of how the CIA and other intelligence groups gathered as much data to zone onto their target. The film is set into three parts. The first is quite uncomfortable viewing as intelligence is extracted via any means possible. The second is following the leads and meeting a lot of dead ends, the final thirty minutes is the raid. The raid is some of the most knuckle chewing bits of film making I have seen in years, as the operation almost failed and the fall-out could have started a war. We know how it ends, but how it is executed is very well done, no patriotic flag waving, Binladen's death is done in an uncompromising matter of fact fashion not giving rise to fanatical death calls. This is a hot potato subject and the film has the common sense not to choose sides. The target was killed and lessons on who to trust in the future must be learnt. the simple fact is trust no one!
Although released at the start of 2013 Zero Dark Thirty has to be a strong contender for one of the best films of the year, even though it didn't get the oscar ( probably due to the subject matter ) It's not an action film, and the attention to deatail my be exausting to some, but stick with it, as this is a film you'll be talking about long after the end credits have rolled.

Maya is a CIA operative whose first experience is in the interrogation of prisoners following the Al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. of 11 September 2011. She is a reluctant participant in extreme duress applied to the detainees, but believes that the truth may only be obtained through such tactics. For several years, she is single-minded in her pursuit of leads to uncover the whereabouts of Al Qaeda's leader, Osama Bin Laden. Finally, in 2011, it appears that her work will pay off, and a U.S. Navy SEAL team is sent to kill or capture Bin Laden. But only Maya is confident Bin Laden is where she says he is. A long film, not all action but it keeps you drawn to what is going on. Good cast, well scripted..good action, and good suspense even though we all know the eventual outcome any how. Visually its stunning and Kathryn Bigelow certainly knows how to capture the realism of a war type setting based off her last award-winning movie; as well with a very strong cast. Really enjoyed the film but watch it with an open mind.5/5 Well worth Watching.

 BORING, BORING, BORING.

I was so looking forward to this movie, but within fifteen minutes I was worried at the alarmingly slow pace and lack of tension. Unfortunately if anything, the pace then slowed down. The photography has a 'gloomy greyness' to it and a rather depressing feel all around. The acting is all right, but nothing more, as the script didn't demand anything other than ordinary. The suspense is virtually zero, which is surprising given the story. Even the ending lacked any suspense or drama, and I couldn't wait for the movie to finish. This movie thinks it is very clever, but it certainly isn't. A real waste of money and more importantly a real waste of two hours plus (it felt like six hours). OVERRATED.

 Hmmm....

As a work of fiction it's quite a good movie, however, as it is billed as a true story, I remain unconvinced. I never swallowed the convenient story we were fed all those years ago. I think some of this was cleverly orchestrated to suit the Americans and we all believe whatever is on the news. Saying that, I could be wrong. Either way this film is very over-hyped. Watch and see.
