Overview

Zero Dark Thirty

Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal, the Academy Award-winning duo behind The Hurt Locker, reteam for this drama detailing the hunt for Osama bin Laden, which stars Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain as the intelligence expert who dedicated a decade of her life to tracking down the world's most wanted terrorist. In the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the CIA began interrogating suspected Al Qaeda agents across the globe in a bid to locate the elusive bin Laden. Upon arriving at a CIA black site and witnessing the brutal interrogation tactics firsthand, driven operative Maya (Chastain) aids her unpredictable colleague Dan (Jason Clarke) in gathering the intelligence that will help bring their target to justice. Over the course of the next decade, numerous false leads and dead ends make the search seem more futile than ever. Meanwhile, numerous suicide bombings across the Middle East and Europe hint that Al Qaeda won't go down without a fight. Then, just when it seems as if the trail of clues has finally dried up, an old piece of evidence leads Maya to a suspect who may work directly for the man charged with planning the worst act of terrorism ever committed on American soil. Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramirez, Mark Strong, Chris Pratt, and James Gandolfini co-star.

Very engaging film, although a little tough to watch some of the torture scenes. The film is very well paced and includes plenty of action.

Zero Dark Thirty Movie Review Zero Dark Thirty was a film that focuses on the intelligence and the SEAL raid on Bin Laden’s compound. This film goes into detail regarding the CIA intelligence agents researching and finding Bin Laden. This movie nearly follows the same storyline as Peter Bergen’s Manhunt the Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden From 9/11 to Abbottabad and Mark Owen’s No Easy Day, both of these authors are credible sources. This movie has great acting from Maya, the CIA intelligence agent to the Navy SEALs to the terrorists. This movie also has great special effects and the story was written well by Mark Boal. Bigelow and Boal were a superb duo as a director and writer in this film. Kathryn Bigelow, director of Zero Dark Thirty, does a great job portraying the greatest military operation in the history of the United States military. Every aspect of this movie was spot-on from the historical accuracy to the directing. The cast of Zero Dark Thirty was a perfect fit in this movie. The special effects in this movie were superb. The car bombs, truck bombs, and explosions almost seemed to be a great add-on in this movie. One specific scene in this movie that stood out was Maya and her friend, Jessica, played by Jennifer Ehle were in a Mariott Hotel in Pakistan having dinner. All of the sudden, a truck bomb went off outside the hotel, creating a massive crater and explosion. The camera view was placed inside the hotel and in the restaurant where Maya and Jessica were eating. The bomb went off, an explosion happened and Maya and Jessica were thrown from one side of the room to the other. This scene stood out because the cinematography was spot on. Overall, Zero Dark Thirty was a spectacular movie with perfect casting, perfect writing, and perfect directing. Bigelow and Boal directed and wrote a movie that could go down in history as one of the greatest military dramas in the history of film. This film would score a 4.5/5 stars. The only reason why this film would not have received a five star rating is because this film has minute details that were different from the actual story.

Travis Salley Professor Turner English 101-04 10 April 2013 Zero Dark Thirty Review Zero Dark Thirty starts off with four words across the screen, “based on true events” and yet the real events weren’t really the focal point of the cinematic experience. Zero Dark Thirty isn’t a quality film. There’s a lack of development within the actual people that played a real role within the actual mission. The main characters include executives and a woman that is somewhat of a spy and is showcased as the main character. From American perspectives of course there are men and women behind the scenes and the viewer’s know that however in war time we think of the men and women on the front line. Zero Dark Thirty is like making an epic poem a haiku, it lacks so much even though it gives enough but it gives off the wrong qualities to be taken seriously. The acting also wasn’t as good as it could’ve been, and the main entities too me (Navy SEALS) acting is terrible and only featured in short moments. Most of the film is looked down upon because a lot of information hasn’t been released besides the fact that Osama Bin Laden has been killed. It’s like the director is taking viewers into the actual timeline without any actual facts so who can say this is true or not without military officials speaking out? Possibly because of its basis of being nothing but research and no actual facts and first account information Zero Dark Thirty comes off as unpolished and clunky. It’s just a boring film until the actual point of the whole film is made and then that part is the shortest of it all. You’ll either love or hate this film but definitely don’t expect Saving Private Ryan here.
