Acting under the cover of a Hollywood producer scouting a location for a science fiction film, a CIA agent launches a dangerous operation to rescue six Americans in Tehran during the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1980.
A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
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

This is supposed to be a movie about American intelligence against terrorism.
It's actually just the worst of Hollywood clichés.
First, don't try to make sense of it. You won't be able to understand a single word any of the actors playing Americans utter. This is a usual problem with modern Hollywood. They love actors and actresses who can't enunciate one word, and who speak with words so garbled together that it is impossible to understand what they say.
Next, expect the usual Nazi propaganda, in which it is imperative to show that only dark haired women are killed, and blond women have a super power that keeps them alive. This is something that helps keep the women interested, as most women are jealous of brunettes, and identify with blonds, no matter who they are.
It's so contrived in this way that one may not even notice it's contrived in every way. It looks like someone making up a story to explain events, just to make the person look tough.
No one with any experience at all is going to buy this. We know there is no intelligence in American intelligence, and they're thirty years behind the homeless guy on the street.
