      Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com [Zero Dark Thirty] is one of the great cinematic procedurals ever made. Rated: 4/4 Apr 26, 2020 Full Review Scott Marks San Diego Reader When it comes to establishing and maintaining tension, there wasn't a better American genre picture released this year. Refrain from viewing it as historical record and you won't leave disappointed. Rated: 3/5 Oct 28, 2019 Full Review Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online ... it is Chastain's performance, as restrained as it is powerful, that may just be the cherry atop this massive and meticulous film. Rated: A- Sep 7, 2017 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal may have meant well but make no mistake that Zero Dark Thirty cannot be viewed in the same light after the torture report's release in 2014. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 19, 2022 Full Review James Croot Stuff.co.nz From its audio-led touching on the events of September 11 to Alexandre Desplat's understated, but evocative and effective score, Zero Dark also impresses aurally... Rated: 4.5/5 Oct 7, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Without resorting to polarizing tactics such as overt theatrics or cold documentary reenactment, it represents a clever balance of emotion and catharsis. Rated: 3/4 Sep 20, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Dan R The dark cloud feeling of this movie blew me away, the hunt was on and feels like your apart of it, even if this movie gives you a fraction of sensation to what it would feel like to be a part of this team, it was exhilarating. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/08/24 Full Review Alec C One of America's most intense manhunts has come to the big screen! As a female operative attempts to capture Osama Bin Laden for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, she has to contend with the moral ambiguity of getting justice in a land where torture, murder and terrorism is part of the job. Unflinching in its portrayal of the inhumanity of a post 9/11 Pakistan, where one of histories most dangerous criminals live in hiding! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review Peraveen K Literally, THE REAL EDGE OF THE SEAT THRILLER movie! Do not miss it!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Bruno V Uma história mau contada através da ótica do roteirista e diretor desse filme. Muito detalhes cruzados que frustra o expectador que fica rezando para o final chegar logo. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review Jack F This movie is tense, riveting, and woderfully acted. It takes us on the journey that those brave individuals took finding Osama Bin Laden years after the devastating attack on 9/11. Kathryn Bigelow's brilliant direction gives you the feeling of frustration and exhaustion that all the characters go through in their hunt. Zero Dark Thirty's running time is a little long, and certain scenes could have been more concise. However, it doesn't take away the power and importance of this film for this moment in history. even though it's not entirely factual what happened. Jessica Chastain is magnificent, as is the rest of the cast. A tour-de-force film that makes you think how incredibly courageous those who protect us and maintain our democracy truly are. 8.8/10 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/24 Full Review Audience Member One of my favorite movies of all time. The first hour is a little slow and is mostly full of torture and terrorist attacks. However, the movie turns once they start tracking the cell phone, and the 90 minutes from there to the end may be the best 90 minutes in cinematic history. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Read all reviews
