ZERO DARK THIRTY (2012) – My rating: 8.5/10

ZeroDarkThirtyIn my humble opinion, Zero Dark Thirty was not as good as Argo or Lincoln but none the less, entertaining and well acted.  This film didn’t spark my interest as much as I thought it would.  It lacked substance and didn’t lend itself to the humbling experience of the mission.  Most of the focus was concentrated on Jessica Chastain’s character which didn’t seem credible in the real world.  Since this is a true story about the capture of one of the world’s most wanted and hunted terrorist (Osama bin Laden) I thought it should have basically stuck to the facts.  I have nothing to base any misinformation on, so I will focus on the entertainment factor rather than the factual aspect.   Zero Dark Thirty told a pretty good story for the most part, I just didn’t think it was necessarily  truthful.  It’s up for Best Picture as well as Best Actress and Sound Editing.
