Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

Looking for a movie that is awesome and tells a great story? This might be one you want to check out. Dan (Jason Clarke) and Maya (Jessica Chastain) are looking to find where they can send Navy Seals to find and assassinate the man responsible for 9/11 and a lot of other terroristic attacks, Osama bin Laden. He has been hiding for years and the CIA has had about enough of searching for him. They now think they have a lead on something when they capture a terrorist who is able to give them some details regarding Osama’s whereabouts. The CIA will do whatever they can to capture this asshole.

This is a story that we all know well. Hollywood decided it was time to make a movie about it. Director, Kathryn Bigelow shocked us again. After winning the Oscar for The Hurt Locker, Kathryn gave us something that might be just as good. This is a story that everyone is interested in and wanted to know about. What Kathryn brought to the screen was just awesome. The story behind this one is a very satisfying one. The movie is another one that makes you proud to be an American.

Zero Dark Thirty was one of my favorite movies that come out in 2012. That was a pretty solid year for movies, but this one was just awesome. The acting in this is superb and they really put a lot of heart into their roles. Everyone wanted to see this man dead. The final scene with the Navy Seals busting in the house is awesome and very nerve wrecking to watch. You just want to see them come out on top and finish this guy.

Zero Dark Thirty is a movie that gives us a great story of the assassination of bin Laden, but also is a great story of letting us know how hard the CIA worked to make sure they wouldn’t screw up their one chance of getting to him. There was a lot of preparation done to ensure victory in their pursuit to get him. This is a movie that makes you proud to be where you are from and know that even though it took long to get him, we still came out as the winner.

Overall, Zero Dark Thirty is an exciting movie and one that makes you say, “that was awesome.” I definitely recommend watching this. It has some brutal scenes, but it’s well worth watching. Two thumbs up!

Grade= A- (Awesome!)
