Synopsis: 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(R) 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.
Kathryn Bigelow's last film The Hurt Locker was extraordinarily good.
Jessica Chastain is an actress at the top of her game.
The subject matter is intriguing as everyone knows the outcome but not the story.
Reasons to be Pessimistic
It has been criticised in some circles for it's "pro-torture stance".
It may be a Hollywood-isation of the actual events and not a true story.
At 157 minutes it seems very long for such a supposedly violent movie.
