    The movie is really good. It was not as good as the Hurt Locker mainly because it did not focus on one concept or idea. The Hurt Locker was all about one thing, but Zero Dark Thirty, jumped here and there with the interrogations and it was unnecessarily jumping and the movie is really long.

    Love this movie and should win awards specially Jessica Chastain.

  4. Russel says:

    For a movie in which everyone already knows the final outcome, the director still managed to keep the tension throughout the film. The film is well acted by all but it’s Jessica Chastain who carried the movie, she played one of the strongest central female characters to hit the big screen in a long time. The director proved she knew her stuff.

  5. Rick C says:

    The movie is a gripping and enlightening tour de force, Zero Dark Thirty shows the audience the complexity of the manhunt for Osama bin Laden and features an amazing performance from Jessica Chastain.
