Summary: Jessica Chastain is perhaps the toughest actress I've seen in a movie that has nothing to do with aliens or maybe that is she plays the toughest female character I've seen in a movie that has nothing to do with aliens. As for the movie itself?
Summary: Zero Dark Thirty is an incredible achievement, and in my mind candidate for best film made so far this decade. It has brought about an important debate, but more significantly it covers ten years of the war on terror in prime fashion.
Excerpt: Zero Dark Thirty is the true life story centred around the obsessive CIA analyst who was most responsible for locating Osama Bin Laden. Katheryn Bigelow's Oscar winner is very much like a combination of her previous film The Hurt Locker and The Wire.
Excerpt: What exactly is so great about this again? Oh yeah, they got Osama in the end. First of all, Zero Dark Thirty is not about the manhunt for Osama Bin Laden. It's about empty conversations and atrocious torture scenes.
Excerpt: An important film. Subtly brilliant and perfectly thrilling, Zero Dark Thirty is beautifully paced; at a near 3 hour running time, the film moves along nicely, never dragging.

Excerpt: A decade-long man hunt of the CIA finally ended on May of 2011. A story of determination and hard work of a woman, Maya (Jessica Chastain), to take down Al- Qaeda terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden. *** I was really excited to watch this film, then it did not disappoint me by any way.
Summary: a film about catching bin laden sounds rubbish on paper but this movie was great, it could of been about anybody as its done so well,, gripping stuff its a proper movie not some silly film on a event of our time, entertaining and real
Summary: I enjoyed the movie. The best part about it though, was the topic and plot. Other than that; the writing, the acting, the storyline, and other aspects of the film left much to be desired. I only really got into Maya's character, so the film was very one-dimensional to me.
