With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access 100 percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers.
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

In 'No Easy Day,' the first-hand account of the attack and killing of Osama bin Laden, written by a member of the SEALs team, the movie's lead character of CIAgent Maya, is known only as 'Jen.' See more »
During the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound, some neighboring houses are shown with lights going on in different rooms as the neighbors become aware of the activity in the compound. In Mark Owen's book, "No Easy Day" and also in the reports on the raid from the New York Times, all the electricity in the neighborhood had been cut a short time before the start of the raid.

Virtually speechless after this movie, and for all the wrong reasons. I was expecting it to be good, if not great.
How do you have take one of the most emotionally charged subjects of the past century and suck all the emotion and suspense out of it? This is about the hunt for bin laden - the man behind 9/11 - for crying out loud! This really happened, and we've lived through it. If you can't create a compelling movie with that, then you shouldn't be making movies.
No context. No character development. No suspense. One of the worst pieces of storytelling I've ever seen.
