The film's title has four meanings according to a publicity flier for the picture. It states: "ZERO DARK THIRTY is a military term for thirty minutes after midnight - as well as code for "under the cover of darkness." It is also the time that the Navy Seals helicopters took to the skies on their mission to eliminate the world's most wanted man. Finally, it serves as a metaphor for the decade long, relentless pursuit of Osama bin Laden". See more »

Not Impressive, didn't expect it to be this terrible...
Lets start with the beginning, the characters were kind of dull in their performances. Right from the CIA agent torturing Omar to the Lady at the CIA. The plot could be more interesting if they made a much more aggressive approach. Now i have no idea where they thought of Arabic in Pakistan but my experience says its more of Urdu. Considering the fact that the movie was all about capturing the most wanted man in the world, i think they should've made this more intensifying. Honestly, i fell asleep in the first half, the theater was just dumb silent and could hear folks yawn for crying out loud! The only thing that kept me awake was the timely suicide bombers that cracked once in a while. Apart from that, nothing interesting. The camera work was shoddy as ever, they try to make it look real with the shaky camera experience but that just made it worse. I think this movie could've done a lot better if the camera work was just like a normal feature film with more of middle east music in the background to keep the spirits alive. It was a bit too silent and speculative. Certainly not something worth watching in a theatre, you may as well get a DVD and watch it just once at home.
