Zero Dark Thirty Review | Examiner

David Weaver of Examiner.com writes: Crafted from a script that was originally supposed to focus on Osama bin Laden's location just after 9/11 and upon learning of his death was then forged into a script focusing primarily on the hunt and his eventual death, "Zero Dark Thirty" packs one helluva punch. Kathryn Bigelow knows how to direct action better than most male directors who are known only for their action movies, but in recent years she has decided to take on more political stories in place of pure escapism. While her action directing sensibilities still shine brightly in her latest feature, the politics and any real sense of drama are all but lost in the mix as she nails the build up to the eventual raid that concludes the film but forgets that there were real people with real emotions tangled up in this massive hunt for the most wanted man in history. (Cinema, Zero Dark Thirty) B-/A+

You know I can't really see the reason why this movie would be good.

For one it's supposedly all about getting Bin Laden and how in the world does that drag for two hours, you got me..

But maybe that's a reason to go see it, but I'm afraid to say it, but that was the reason why I stayed away. Seems like that journey would be a snooze fest..

It's getting amazing reviews.. so I might check it out, It does make you wonder what really went on just to get one man, the most wanted man in the world.. -and why in the world did it take so long..

I hope they answer those two questions in the film..
