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.

"Zero Dark Thirty" is not a military term that means 12:30 AM. "Zero Dark" is not midnight. It simply refers to an early/late time of the day (Depending on your perspective), often referred to in a negative light. It is similar to the phrase "Beer-thirty." See more »
The "Pakistani" market scenes shot in India, clearly show several businesses advertising their Hindu owners' last names. In Pakistan, a majority of business ownership hoardings would only show Muslim last names. See more »
A very unrealistic and flat out boring depiction of this so called "suspenseful search".
The ONLY REASON I DID NOT WALK OUT due to how terrible the film was in general, was to see the final search and assassination of Osama Bin Laden- which turned out to be even less suspenseful than the rest of the film...
The situations were blatantly unrealistic, as well as the speech/communication between characters.
Characters were very bland and annoying. The movie seemed to drag on forever with absolutely zero intense scenes. A few here and there were obviously somewhat intense, but never got my full attention due to unrealistic causes.
Extremely high ease of foreshadowing is present, the movie is very predictable.
The few attempts at humor were pathetic. The overall attempt to cover up propaganda was pathetic. Most pathetic of all was the unbelievably obvious, over dramatic acting and directing.
I've never written a movie review before, even for my most favorite movies, and my most hated ones. However, this movie was so boring I felt the need to let others know, so that they will not waste their time and money on it. This movie does not deserve any awards or nominations.
