Storyline

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.

If you enjoyed the Hurt Locker .....
5 October 2014 | by ghurst2001-1See all my reviews

I have come to this film pretty late and am a bit surprised at the polarised views

I enjoyed the Hurt Locker and given that the outcome is obviously known I still found it tense, dramatic etc and I put this down to Katherine Bigelow's skill as a director

As others as commented this is far from propaganda as it is a pretty uncomfortable ride in the early part of the film as torture is used

I didn't see this as an 'ends justifies the means' positioning, however but steps along the journey

if you haven't seen it certainly don't be put off by the low mark reviews, they are just silly

There is so much directorial skill here

Certainly If you enjoyed the Hurt locker then see this
