Inside look
23 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is an HBO documentary about the hunt and the killing of Osama Bin Laden by the Americans. It's great to see an inside look at the team that was tasked to hunt for Bin Laden. Certainly there's a sense that some parts are being left out or glossed over. It's hard to determine whether it's a matter of personal views or actual secrecy requirement. But overall it's important to see what actually happened. I found the interviews with many of the people involved very compelling. Sadly, some of the main people weren't there. One in particular was killed in Afghanistan.
