Even to stare down at a brutal interrogation scene and wonder whether it’s worth it, whether torture really does work as an information-gathering tool, is still to presume that it would, in fact, be legitimized by its revelations—and to assume that if torture doesn’t work, then surely some other operation does. In other words, to ask, as Zero Dark Thirty has its audience do throughout, whether the end justifies the means, is to presume that the end is a worthwhile one to begin with.

The film is a cinematic page-turner, constructed on a simple architecture: the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden… But there’s something perverse about approaching “Zero Dark Thirty” as exciting action entertainment: it’s based on real events and real people, and, in surprisingly many ways, its subject is at the very core of contemporary American politics: the use of force by the United States government…

Bigelow’s assured, breathless handling of the climactic siege on Bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad may be the most potent and seemingly effortless display of the director’s ability to choreograph exact and powerful movement in tight, dangerous spaces; her ability to mount active tension is very simply unparalleled.

    Gandolfini's face when Chastain says "I'm the motherfucker that found this place. Sir."-> priceless. Tell me again how women are the 'weaker sex' and how they're "poor helpless lil' birds" that can't do men's jobs cos they're not "as good". Chastain is every woman ever: courageous, determined, focused, professional and hooked on her goals; never taking a No for an answer and never flinching or doubting herself>BAWSS

  • InsertOzuReferencehere's rating of the film Zero Dark Thirty

    I think the military propaganda elements were mostly unintentional, those that did seem mediated were most likely to keep it nestled within the parameters of a successful box office campaign. For me, this was a half-baked attempt at a feminist film - and though it has some decent moments technically, the laboured commercial feminism is annoying as hell. Telegraphed feminism almost always misses in film.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film Zero Dark Thirty

    With hindsight, a star has been removed because I feel Bigelow's war movies are overstated, when before, I interpreted her directorial style as an understated rendering of social realism. Errs too close to a Blockbuster when it really should act as an objective account.

  • mjgildea's rating of the film Zero Dark Thirty

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars. More like a dramatized documentary than actual storytelling but I liked it. The Seal Team 6 sequence felt like a little too much like a 1st person shooter for me to take the movie too seriously. Overall, I don't think it lived up to all the hype and it was maybe 20 minutes too long but I can think of worse ways to spend your time.

  • Eostig Louet's rating of the film Zero Dark Thirty

    Some moments stink like pathetic patriotism around a vendetta. But it's still a beautiful piece of cinema, questioning the medium, the limits of truth in pictures and the way everything here is nothing but an illusion. I don't know what else I could think of a film depicting an operation led by a fictional character named Maya (illusion in sanskrit) leading to the assasination of the "third floor guy".

  • Teresa Silva's rating of the film Zero Dark Thirty

    Ahhh, american war movies. I actually thought Bigelow held onto historical accuracy well and managed to question the viewer often about America's policy regarding strikes and torture. I don't get the people that say that this glorified torture? If you ignore the (arguably subtler) AMUUHRICA!!! tones, and the inaccurate portrayal of Arabs, this movie is great. And the ending was perfect.

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film Zero Dark Thirty

    A very capable piece of odious filmmaking, populated by terrorists so alien to our way of life that they don't even get our Tolkien references, Zero Dark Thirty would like to have its cake and beat it, too -- which is a brutal and stupid thing to say, but no more offensive than Bigelow and Boal proclaiming their fealty to the facts even as they brush off criticism on the grounds of their creative license as artists.

  • Trevor Tillman's rating of the film Zero Dark Thirty

    The outcry against this has been lazy. I recently sat down and watched the film, aware of the debate, standing firmly against the use of these enhanced interrogation techniques, and ready to scrutinize the film for being irresponsible. By the end, I found a film that was not exploitative but instead eager raise ethical questions that spur discussion.
