Zero Dark Thirty is an American film about the secret plan by the US government to find and kill the international terrorist and leader of Al-Qaeda: Osama Bin Laden.
This is one of the most thrilling stories that I have ever seen be adapted to film, and only one year and a half after the actual event happened, they made a brilliant movie out of it.
This film also had one of the most exciting and tension-packed ending sequences that I have ever seen, where the US Navy SEALs enter the secret hideout of Bin Laden, and try to uncover him in total darkness, in a house littered with relatives and friends of the Al-Qaeda leader.
The only problem that I may have with this film is that it was just way too long. There were many parts throughout which could have been shortened or even cut, as they were just not necessary to contribute to the story.
Overall, I’ll give this film a 7.8 because it had some incredible sequences that thrilled me to the edge of my seat, however other parts of the film were just too slow and dull, which made it occasionally a little boring.
