Film #19 of 2013: Zero Dark Thirty (2012)
A chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May 2011.
I’m sorry but this was an utter snooze-fest, boring and exactly as I expected. On the other hand, yes it is an important film but I think it could have been done differently. Perhaps focused on Jessica’s character a bit more to really find out who she was or why she was recruited to this career. For one of themost controversial movies there was nothing exciting it it or hightened tension. There was no personal relationships, very little character development, and quite frankly – a poorly written script. Why is this nominated for best film? There was not much cinematic about it.
See it or skip it?See it if you are a movie buff or want to know more about how they captured OBL.
Would I watch this movie again? No… I think watching this movie was more torture then that which was in the film.
