Matt's Review of Zero Dark Thirty
Zero Dark Thirty(2013)
"Zero Dark Thirty" is an important film for our generation, and an honorable salute to the men and women who daily put themselves in harm's way for our safety. It is a suspenseful and well-crafted drama, right up to its tension-filled climax.
Jessica Chastain's performance as the operative who leads the manhunt on Bin Laden is the heart of the film, and it's refreshing to see that the film does not take any political stances, despite the controversies the film has generated. "ZDT" is a little overlong though, and gets a little crowded with its numerous characters. It may not have much in terms of plot, but it delivers almost everywhere else. "Zero Dark Thirty" is an intense and fascinating look at the secretive and laborious mission to take down the man responsible for thousands of innocent deaths.
