The final raid at the end is happening, and yet Bigelow allows time to get us to know some of the more prominent soldiers in the film.
Everything felt molded to bring quality storytelling in my opinion, giving fully formed characters with personality and relationships, while also keeping the focus tight on the years on finding Bin Laden.
