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 somewhere 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 Indian TV actors. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, the CIA operatives are shown following Abu Ahmed Al-Kuwaiti in Peshawar, Pakistan. However all the vehicles shown have Indian registration number plates of the state of Maharashtra. See more »

Quotes

Lieutenant Commander: As always, we go in sterile. If you get killed you're stupid. If you get captured, you gotta get killed first. Make sure you smart packs are back here.

Oh brother! Just another campaign tool
28 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now that the dust of the recent presidential election has settled (and other information about the search for OBL has come to light), we can see this flick for what it really was--just a campaign tool to put Obama in a heroic light, both for benefit of the election and for history. Produced by Weinstein, one of Obama's biggest boosters in the film industry. Lots of deeply serious and introspective Obama commentary during the flick. Boy, is he brilliant or what? But on numerous points we now know Weinstein simply fabricated as he went along.

The film DOES paint a flattering portrait of seal training and the Skype videos with loved ones at home were moving; that's the reason the movie gets two stars instead of just one.

Like the movie "JFK," this one does a disservice to history. Oh, well. These are interesting times we live in.
