Maya is a CIA operative whose first experience is in the interrogation of prisoners following the Al Qaeda attacks against the U.S. on the 11th September 2001. She is a reluctant participant in extreme duress applied to the detainees, but believes that the truth may only be obtained through such tactics. For several years, she is single-minded in her pursuit of leads to uncover the whereabouts of Al Qaeda's leader, Osama Bin Laden. Finally, in 2011, it appears that her work will pay off, and a U.S. Navy SEAL team is sent to kill or capture Bin Laden. But only Maya is confident Bin Laden is where she says he is. Written by

When the SEALs were prepping the downed helicopter to blow, it shows the control panels to the chopper completely intact. During the actual event the pilots of the helicopter were destroying everything inside for security measures, while the Seals were conducting their mission. See more »
Zero Dark Thirty (2012) Jessica Chastain. The story of the 10 year pursuit of Osama Ben Laden and the woman who was obsessed with finding and bringing him down. Naval special warfare development group (DEVGRU), or SEAL Team 6, and the operation to go in and get him is the most emotional part of the film. The matter-of-fact way the men get ready and load up and go in and find and kill the terrorist, made me sob. Can't help it - they were so young and so well trained. No heroics
just another job to do. Bigelow, the director, has done another
marvelous job showing our men in action. We may not agree with the politics, but the guys doing the job are great. Me? I'm glad they got the SOB. The torture scenes are made to seem like just another day at the office. Which is probably about what it is like after the decision was made to do it. Age-old question - does the end justify the means? 8/10
