I had trouble with Chastain as the lead, the rest was fine.

In spite of miscasting Chastain as the lead actor the film was well made and mostly gripping. Much better than Argo. Affleck in drag as the lead if he has directed it would have been more beleivable.

I thought she was excellent. I'm trying to imagine what I would be like if I had spent 12 years chasing Bin Laden.

I thought she was fine, not great, and has been overpraised. However I was surprised to read the SEAL interview in Esquire last week where he said the portrayal of Maya was awesome.

I didn't think she was miscast at all. I thought she gave a realistic and brilliant performance (which probably figures why she's gotten a lot of accolades).

That's fine, glad you enjoyed it. I did as well.
I just think it would have been better with a dfferent lead actor.
