A chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden following the September 11 attacks of 2001, and his death at the hands of U.S. Navy SEALs in May 2011.
Drama Action Thriller - This film based on the real life hunt for Osama bin Laden crosses a
number of genres: serious drama, investigative procedural
thriller/mystery, and finally a military action film. Various cast
members come and go in roles small and larger, but the one consistent
presence is lead Jessica Chastain. Language and violence make the
film inappropriate for children.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Very Good Zero Dark Thirty is unquestionably one of the best films of 2012.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average There's an emotional detachment to the film that undercuts its potency. Zero Dark Thirty is more technically proficient than emotionally involving.
NY PostFull Review Excellent So not only is 'Zero Dark Thirty'' one of the year's best movies, it's an inspiring one to share with your daughters. That is, if they're old enough to deal with explicit torture scenes.
