Jasen's Review of Zero Dark Thirty
Zero Dark Thirty(2013)
Wait... it's all in the second half of the movie. Zero Dark Thirty is at first a tedious look into the back story of the operation that led to the elimination of Osama bin Laden. Director Kathryn Bigelow places you into the details of the years of work, torture, interrogation, failures and investigation leading up the night that everyone watching this movie is waiting to see. This is a cold and graphic movie. When "it" finally arrives it plays out like an X-box game which is either a credit to X-box or a very real portrayal (I'm still not sure). I was never entertained during Zero Dark Thirty not once, but I do feel more informed like after a history lesson or a two hour R rated news cast.
