I went into this movie preparing to hate it, but I was wrong, dead wrong. The movie is tightly written, masterfully directed and honestly Jessica Chastain should've won over Jennifer Lawrence. It is intense and had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole way through even though I knew how it all ended. This movie is a great success artistically because even though we all know how it ends, it plays out like a Hitchcock thriller such as Rope with James Stewart. One of the best movies of the decade. Period
This is a pretty typical spy movie. Shows you a good portion of the events that lead up to Bin Ladins death. However it is a pretty biased movie, doesn't show much of the big mistakes that were made by us. The plot was good, but could have been better. They focused on only a few key events that were not the most interesting. I think if they covered more with less detail it would have been better. Characters are well done and the acting is good. The cast was able to pull of a very believable character.
There was a whole lot of nothing for 2 hours, then they went in and got Osama and the movie ended abruptly. This really is just a movie for empowering women considering the whole movie was about how the red haired chick was so certain that Osama was in this building, and everyone else in the whole world was against her. That literally was like 99% of the movie. Then some BS Hollywood explosives happened with some fancy 1-liners and now we got Oscar nomination. The only reason I gave this 2 stars is cause Obama is actually dead.
