Zero Dark Thirty

From the first frame to the last, ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ will have you on the edge of your seat. Emotions will flow fast and furiously as you relive history. You will grip the armrests of your seat with anxiety and appreciation. After all, this is a movie about taking out the worst enemy America has ever faced.

The action in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ is the suspense of watching the action un-fold. The suspense at times can be crushing because we know the end result, but agonizing through the gritty details of how America got there is what this movie is all about.

You will find agonizing scenes in this movie which demonstrate how ruthless Bin Laden and Al Qaeda were. The realism is all too real and all too devastating at times, but as one scene flows into the next you are always there in your seat, anxiously waiting to find out what happens next.

No scene is more dramatic than when the Seals fly into Bin Laden’ compound and one of the helicopters crashes; at once you remember the tragedy when America tried to rescue our hostages held by Iran, and then relief floods over you as you realize this crash is not a tragedy in the making. But suddenly, in a few seconds, you are with the Navy seals as they are inside the compound and hunt down and take out the worst terrorist the world has ever known. Your heart beats faster and you clench your teeth as the action unfolds in this scene, all the while thinking how great it is to be an American.

‘Zero Dark Thirty’ is about taking out Bin laden and the plans and heroes involved. But much more than that, ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ is about America, about people like you and I who wanted justice and wanted to take out Bin laden and at the end of this movie you want to stand up and cheer.

    Zero Dark Thirty was amazing, I thought it deserved the Best Picture
    Oscar. Mark Boal & Kathryn Bigelow make an awesome military genre
    team. I loved her previous film Hurt Locker, and this one was better still.
    Need to own a copy of this for sure!!
