Storyline

When the rumored whereabouts of Osama bin Laden are revealed, the CIA readies a team of seasoned U.S. Navy SEALs for the mission of a lifetime. Despite inconclusive evidence that bin Laden is inside the compound, and ignoring the possible ramifications of an unannounced attack on Pakistani soil, the Pentagon orders the attack. The SEAL Team bands together to complete their mission of justice in a riveting final showdown. Written by Nat Geo

Trivia

The scenes depicting Peshawar, Pakistan were actually shot at Khopoli in Maharashtra, India. This is clearly evident from the license plate numbers of the vehicles that can be seen on the road. The numbers start with 'MH' which is the code for the state of Maharashtra. Also the actors playing the roles of CIA assets in the scenes are famous Marathi TV actors. See more »

Goofs

The movie depicts that the tail rotor on the helicopter broke off on the impact of the crash in the compound. During the actual event the tail rotor broke when the Seals detonated the helicopter after they were clearing the target. See more »

Insulting to the Military and Intelligence Communities
14 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gave it a one because it was the lowest rating possible. If we were to edit this movie down to the facts, it would have been about five minutes long.

It's one thing to take some artistic licence with a true story, but this movie didn't take licence. It seemed like they didn't get any support from the military and they didn't do much research. A lot of the details I noticed probably wouldn't have been noted by the average viewer.

However, the most glaring detail was the way the military was portrayed

  • like a bunch of high school drama queens. The kind of garbage


portrayed in this movie was unrealistic at best.

Please, PLEASE don't waste your time.
