Review: Zero Dark Thirty

Jan. 12, 2013by: JimmyO

PLOT: ZERO DARK THIRTY recounts the pursuit and capture of Osama bin Laden, the Al Qaeda leader held accountable for the events which took place on September 11, 2001.

REVIEW: There is a disquieting storm surrounding the new film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Kathryn Bigelow (THE HURT LOCKER) explores the ten year search for the man held responsible for the devastating tragedy that took place at the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. Many a filmmaker might have taken on this sensitive material with a more sensationalized approach. Thankfully Bigelow manages to create a high tension tale of CIA Operatives and their desperate search to capture a terrorist in hiding. She offers a very compelling and morally complex take on a story which spanned two American presidential administrations.

Jessica Chastain stars as Maya, a young CIA officer whose job is to find terrorists. Clearly it would be impossible for Bigelow to use the real names of those involved so Maya is “based” on a real person. Chastain is perfect as a woman whose life has become all about finding bin Laden. She creates a character that is at once conflicted about the torture of an Al Qaeda detainee, yet defiant that they must do everything in their power to complete their mission, and that is to track down and kill bin Laden. The task proves to be one that will most likely haunt Maya for as long as she lives, as well as those around her.

Screenwriter and producer Mark Boal and Bigelow immediately create a harrowing story with the “enhanced interrogation” of Ammar, a captured Al Qaeda member played brilliantly by Reda Kateb. Jason Clarke plays the CIA Op who questions and tortures the man suspected of having connections with bin Laden. These early scenes are especially uncomfortable for the viewer, yet they never feel exploitative. When Dan (Clarke) tells Ammar what will happen if he doesn’t tell the truth, there is real sense of horror for the prisoner – even though he was so close to the Sept. 11 attacks.

As the movie progresses, we follow what is essentially a detective story. Clues are followed and sometimes they help, yet other times they can be gravely serious mistakes. Thankfully, Chastain gives what might very well be her best performance to date. It would be almost impossible to really relate to Maya, as it is unimaginable the choices she would be called upon to make. However, deep within her delicate voice and soft features we see the driven and powerful woman that she is. As the central character, she effectively gives this story its human element. This is a powerhouse performance that reminds us why Chastain is one of the most compelling actresses in recent years.

Aside from Chastain, the rest of the cast is equally impressive. Jason Clarke (both Clarke and Chastain starred in this year’s LAWLESS) is perfect as a man who is assigned to do a painfully difficult job. His work opposite Kateb is fantastic. And while Kyle Chandler and Jennifer Elhe are also quite terrific, the story begins and ends with Maya and her overpowering need to find a needle in a haystack as it were. Thankfully Bigelow is able to create a real sense of honesty in all of the performances. This is especially true for some of the members of the NAVY SEALS who are brought in to carry through on the ultimate goal, including the always reliable Joel Edgerton.

While not a traditional action film, Bigelow creates an astounding level of suspense. Oftentimes you know exactly what is going to happen, yet it builds and builds to its ultimate conclusion in an excruciatingly tension fueled way. How much of this story is absolutely accurate, I’m not entirely sure. Yet there is a very distinct sense that the research done is remarkably close to the events leading up to the cinematic and of course, real life conclusion. ZERO DARK THIRTY (military jargon for the dark of night) is a pulse-pounding look at the pursuit and capture of the elusive Osama bin Laden. Ethically challenging and smartly crafted with an award worthy performance from Chastain, this is certainly one of the best and most provocative films of 2012.

Decent but boring

No doubt bigelow did as good as she can with this story, but i never had a Wow feeling throughout the movie(neither had the people i watched it with) and i was bored, it didnt grab me, had the same feeling with the hurt locker, but that movie had some amazing scenes in it that i hoped would be in the third act of this one, to me a let down, did like chastain though but where was her shower scene?

Watched last night...

Honestly, I was kinda let down. After all the praise and headlines - I expected to be blown away. And I just wasn't. However, that doesn't mean it isn't a decent flick. I was just expecting more.

On a side note - I don't know what the fuss over the waterboarding in this movie is all about??? "Safe House" with Denzel had the exact same thing in it and no one said anything.

9.5/10 for me

What a movie! I really really enjoyed it. Bigelow is the wo-man! I have to admit that I thought Hurt Locker was a lucky bullseye but now I am sold. The little details and everything about it are great.
What I don't understand is why the hate and accusations flying everywhere. Conspiracy Theory Mel Gibson would be proud

Was it because of this one review or was this the review that broke that camel's back? It's sitting at Rottentomatoes with a 93% approval rating, so it seems most critics agree with Jimmy.

93% is not a 10/10. I would give this an 8 or 9/10. But a 10/10 is literally a PERFECT movie!! Perfection comes along once in blue moon. And to say this movie was PERFECT, you've got to be kidding me.

Whether you trust my reviews or not is your purgative, but you should look at the 93% approval rating and the grades given, there is a large number of critics that gave this film top marks (4 out of 4 or 5 out of 5, depending on how they rate movies) or at the very least NEAR "perfect" marks. And no, NOBODY gets "a little money under the table" here, that's a pretty ballsy accusation dude.

Once again a baseless accusation pretending to be a legitimate concern when in fact its another cause head drone lying to everyone and themselves.

Just ignore him. Jimmy O is the best reviewer this site has BY FAR. It's the site's owner who can't be trusted.

I mean you just insulted the reviewer. Are YOU banned? No? So fuck berg or whatever the fuck that gypsy cunt's name is.

JimmyO's stock just dropped. Big time.
Unless you're looking for a boring dramatization of a b.s. cover story (yeah, the most infamous villain of all time and we dump his body at sea before anyone can verify the kill?!!!), and a predictable CIA puff piece, skip this shit.

Could have been better

This movie could have been pretty brilliant if there was a bit more character development - for me it just wasn't too emotionally engaging. I thought it could have been trimmed down in run-time, the scene where Maya's friend Jessica is killed in the suicidal bombing had ZERO tension as it was too slow and obvious as to what was going to happen. This is a bit strange because the tension in the Hurt Locker was phenomenal. The last 45 min of the movie were done very well. The movie is good, but I

Fantastic film. Incredibly intense. I do have to admit that I kind of tuned out just after the beginning when things got a little too into the technical aspects and they started speaking the jargon, but once they started blowing things up and created that real sense of fear and paranoia, I was hooked. Pretty much the entire film was fascinating.

I'm not sure how it felt like a propaganda machine. It was a recounting of the mission to catch Bin Laden. There really aren't a whole lot of ways to show how the mission went down.

Seems like some people are straight up unwilling to watch Zero Dark Thirty regardless of its quality and praise. Reading the reasons why is very disappointing. I'd prefer to imagine my fellow Shmoes without tinfoil wrapped around their head.

Again with the old "tinfoil" comment. Why don't you instead try to rationalize the question I posed to you. Why the problem of showing OBL's body to the world as proof? A simple photograph is denied us. Gaddafi and Sadam's death's were revealed, why not OBL's? I await your next witty remark about us "conspiracy theorists" all being insane just because we are free thinkers who choose to question everything. Always thirsty for another drink from the river of thirst/knowledge that is

That was my first tinfoil comment:-) I don't think all conspiracy theorists are insane. What do you call a person that asks you to prove Bin Laden dead though, enlightened? It's like a Christian asking me to prove God doesn't exist.

@Preston_79 - I wasn't referring to your own "tinfoil" remark, it is the most used insult to describe someone who doesn't blindly believe whatever someone wants them to. I question everything, it is important to. You obviously have no knowledge of the Bush family's relationship with the bin Laden family, do you? There is more than one reason we would want to keep him alive.

Higgins... how presumptuous of you to think I would insult someone for no reason. How is this for insulting?

"Poland attacked a German radio outpost." You are misinformed, the SS were notorious for dressing in Polish army uniform and attacking regular German army troops to get the rest of the nation to support a Polish invasion. It is called a False Flag operation. kisses back, oh and I'm not banned.

I saw it and enjoyed it but have taken the facts with a grain of salt. The fact that a lot of politicians have come out saying much of the movie is inaccurate leads me to believe its more of a dramatization of events than an actual re-telling of what happened. Regardless its a good detective film with a quality action ending.

This is just the best movie of 2012. If you want it slated as 2013 for the wide release it won't be beat in 2013 either. This movie is expertly made and perfect.
Lefty assholes denying themselves the best movie of the year because of their conditioning and weak minds are CNN sheep and NOT real movie fans. So why the fuck r u on this site? Go to one of the tens of thousands of left leaning sheaple site and embarrass yourselves there as usual.

That's not insulting so much as an appropriate response.

btw playing net police is like looking at a mall cop and thinking 'wow....some day...I'll have real power like that'.

Whether I believe it or not isn't really the point, but I thought the inane reactions were fascinating examples of ignorance and sensationalism. What I would suggest to you though is to watch an interesting documentary titled Zeitgeist, particularly the segment on 9/11 and then we'll talk again. You can find it in its entirety on Youtube I believe. Until then; adieu.

So at the end he first attempts to claim it was sarcasm but then goes back and falls flat on his face admitting it wasn't and he is exactly as I initially pointed out.

What a surprise. And the site mod not only defends him but attacks me to pointing out exactly what the guy is.

When did I ever say I was being sarcastic about 9/11? Unlike the lot of you think I wouldn't even ever dream of being sarcastic or making jokes about something like that. Just watch that documentary and you'll see what's what, despite how, to quote Preston, "tinfoil wrapped around your head" conspiratorial it may

And stop projecting your anger, for being put in your place by Mr. JoBlo himself, at me. I'm just putting my 2 cents in, and you are very welcome to ignore me. In fact, I'd prefer it.

How's it Propaganda when Bush started the search, but Obama was in office when it ended? I'd ask for specifics from the people calling it that, but I'm guessing you haven't seen it.

What specifics do you need? The man was not captured the way our govt. (and complicent media) wants us to believe. He is most likely alive and well. Prove me wrong, I challenge you to. The world had no problems seeing a dead Muammar Gaddafi, or Saddam, why not Bin Laden? Now that you think about it, it doesn't make any sense does it? They are liars, all of them.

@seth Sorry but the burden of the proof is on your shoulders. The publicity-seeking Bin Laden hasn't shown his face since they said he was dead and Al Qaeda has not denied his death either. The only people who thinks he still lives are American conspiracy theorists.

I always found it "interesting" that they dumped Bin Laden's body out to sea barely a day or two after they killed. At least that's the cover story they put out. However photos we're leaked of his dead body moments after the raid took place so I have no doubts in my mind that we got him. I just don't like how the event was politicized and then mysteriously a couple months later many of the Seal Team 6 members that took out Bin Laden were all on a helicpoter that magically crashes killing

So we should live our lives in constant fear of what some Muslim extremists might do to us if we offend them? I for one will not. Radicals will always exist and they will always be recruiting.

Saw it last night, Propaganda MY ARSE!

While I wouldn't quite give it a 10/10, the last 20/30 minutes of this film are totally edge-of-the-seat, and everything leading up until it is executed perfectly. As a CONSERVATIVE that disdains Obama, the criticisms of this film concerning him are RIDICULOUS. If anything, he is portrayed NEGATIVELY. Honestly, just because one of your friends told you they heard it was pro-Obama, doesn't mean the film is. Not to mention, this film is about 1 million times more realistic than Hurt Locker. 1.)

Because Hurt Locker was totally unrealistic, although still a good film. And 2.) Because there isn't any BS bullet dodging, or any jumps in believability to the timeline of events presented. I guarantee you they used professional soldiers or ex-military in the operation filmed, because it looks as realistic as you're ever going to get. So again. Yeah, I dislike Obama a lot. But this film is non-Political, and only makes him look inept in the brief parts where you can subtly pick up on it. People like Avatard are just rejects thinking they're politically smart even though they haven't SEEN the film.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist whatsoever. And I do believe that I m rational thinking, logical, level headed individual. That being said, I don't believe the events in the film. I've got a family member who is a captain in the army and did two tours in Afghanistan (I won't say who but he is close family). Both prior and after his first tour, he had to sit in on major briefings with generals, some of whom were Five Star. Years before Bin Laden was killed, he said very simply "We know where Bin

Years before Bin Laden was killed, he said very simply "We know where Bin Laden is. We just don't want him dead. He's in Pakistan. And there are things you just don't want to know."

To kill Bin Laden would have put our intelligence community in a bad spot being that they wouldn't know anything about his replacement. That being said, I haven't seen ZDT, but I still will. Good movie is a good movie. Regardless of it's falsities.

Exactly. The average movie goer has no ties to the military. I live near Ft. Bragg, and Special Ops, "Delta Force" is well known around these parts. When you live this close to secret operation specialists, you are bound to hear things. Added to that, many of my old high school mates are marines from Camp Lejune and this has given me an ear to things unsaid and unheard by most people. This movie has way too many holes and falsities to even garner it a 5 out of 10.

I dont usually jump in, but this one just jumped out at me having been in the Army. You said "he had to sit in on major briefings with generals, SOME OF WHOM WERE FIVE STAR.", The problem with that is there is never more than one 5 Star General at any time. The chances that your family member that was a Captain was in briefings with a 5 Star is pretty slim since there hasnt been a 5 Star General (Or "General of the Army" as they're called) since World War 2. That info throws major questions on

I dont mean to be an asshole, but that one really bugged me since I was in and still have friends in the Military Intelligence field(I got out before 911, so not saying I have any inside info).

Whoops - sorry. Perhaps I'm using the wrong term to describe the individualshe was around during those briefings. Certainly there were generals, but not Five Star. My apologies for the confusion, that's my mistake.

Ya I'm sure your buddies in the reserves guarding latrines are more in the know about Pakistan than the guy I talk to twice a week who is IN Pakistan.

btw last time I asked him how things are going he said "Obama killed another 150 children yesterday with an air strike".

You people are fuckking demented. Why go online and lie? Why don't you just say you ARE the 5 star general?

It was soooo boring, and Jessica was a really bad actress in it

I don't get the rave reviews for this crap. Jessica was so bland and boring and the whole plot was so overly far fetched you could tell were the truth was and where they threw on piles of padded fiction. Hurt Locker was so much better than this crap. This is like if Michael Bay got a chance to direct soldier so they could be all 'Merica Fuck Yeah! with fewer explosions.

Hurt Locker is so much more farfetched than this movie. Can you honestly look at even a five year old kid with a straight face and tell him that? This wasn't an action movie, except for the last 20/30 minutes essentially. So if you thought you were going to get 2.5 hours of commandos in the dark, then obviously you were quite wrong.

People are assuming this is a propaganda film based on what exactly, Fox News? I don't understand how some come to the conclusion of because something is fictitious that it automatically doesn't deserve a perfect score. The film was great and the last 20 minutes or so were absolutely thrilling. I recommend this to anyone who just wants to see a good movie, fictitious or not.

Awesome flick. Sorry all this is NOT a Propaganda movie. Tells a story a lets u decide. In fact, if you are expecting "Acts of Valor" or other rah-rah shoot em up you will be disappointed. This a procedural CIA / spy movie that is just fantastic on all levels of movie making.

Living in a Society of Fear

Well over a year after Bin Laden’s death and over 10 years since 9/11, American citizens are still blindly allowing their civil liberties to be taken away one piece of legislation at a time in the naming of fighting a nonexistent homeland threat. How much freedom are we willing to sacrifice to feel safe? What difference did it make killing Bin Laden and Hussein if nothing has changed? You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my visual response to these

the military/action component of this movie is more realistic than any movie I've ever seen before. I get the feeling that when the masks/helmets are on, those are legit spec forces guys or ex-ones that are portraying it. Either that, or they had a ton of input on how to portray it. Ok, now that I think about it, Saving Private Ryan's opening sequence probably can't be topped. But if you're competing with that, it's not a bad thing

I just want to know is there a scene where they have to drag Obama's ass off the golf course to get him to decide whether or not the seal team can take Bin-Laden out some 7 hrs after they have a lock-down on his position. The Seal team that took him out were heroes and succeeded in spite of the president's inability to make a quick and timely decision.

That's funny, because history will show, and all reasonable people know, that the SEALs only went in because of President Obama's quick and timely decision. Missile strike was the first option. But keep spouting off whatever Rush Limbaugh tells you is fact. It looks pretty smart. And Neo-Con nonsense is doing pretty well, so keep it up!

Funny, the SEAL teams and the military involved in the Bin-Laden takedown called Obama "fantastic" for his leadership role.

In fact, Admiral Bill McRaven, head of Special Forces, said, "At the end of the day, make no mistake about it, it was the president of the United States that shouldered the burden of this operation, that made the hard decision . . . The president of the United States is fantastic . . . (he) asked all the right questions …The president gave me ample time to prepare

There's no single head of "Special Forces".

And no Obama did not do a damned thing. His decision was required...it didn't prompt or initiate jack shit.

That same decision was required in Bengazi. But he took his sweet time and 4 people died and then its been covered up since. The latest being Clinton faking a sickness to avoid her trial. It IS her trial btw.

Our president was totally out to lunch when all this went down, same as he was with Benghazi. We were using the ambassador to illegally ship weapons to the rebels in Syria through Turkey and something went wrong. We had planes an hour away in Italy and they were told to stand down while a couple of Navy Seals held out as long as they could and were eventually killed along with the Ambassador. Benghazi was nothing more than a result of another Fast and Furious in the Middle East.

It should be 0 Dark Thirty but I'm glad it turned out so great

It's amazing how this one turned out so well yet the propaganda one Weinstein injected all that probama garbage into before airing it on Nat Geo just before that "election" turned out so laughably bad.

Meh

Well, I guess it was kind of predictable. I couldn't stand The Hurt Locker, for me it was a boring, overrated turd that no one remembers by now. The fact that Mark Boal won over Tarantino was just unforgivable. Seeing how history repeats itself makes me cringe.
But hey, to each their own. I respect JimmyO's opinion and everyone else's. If you like it, that's fine. It's not really my cup of tea.

I completely agree with you, especially on the Screenwriter part. I dare any of you to read the screenplays for The Hurt Locker and Inglorious Basterds side by side. NO COMPARISON. Tarantino was robbed.

I'm not very excited for this. On a side note. We never captured Bin Laden as you say at the end Jimmy.

We put a bullet in his head when we could have put him on trial and showed the world we stand for something more then just more killing.

I think they figured if they captured him alive the terrorists would have gone apeshit on the homeland trying to either get him released or pay us back for capturing him. I don't have a problem with them executing his ass on the spot. Hope he's enjoying Hell right now.

Kathryn Bigelow has always been a great director & has given us some great classics like Near Dark, Point Break, Strange Days & Hurt Locker was a very well made & intense movie. SO it should be no surprise this movie is getting loads of praise. She doesn't make many movies yet always seems to deliver every time.

Great to hear another positive review for this film. In all honesty, I haven't really been looking forward to Zero Dark Thirty, but now that it seems it lives up to the hype and more, I will have to check it out.
