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.Written by

I hate to be so contrary to the hype we are hearing and the Oscar tap, but I was not impressed nor even that entertained... in fact I had just commented to my companion movie goer that the lead character had not been very impressive when she finally had some acting to perform... the scene where she gave the station chief an ultimatum... the rest of the story was choppy and not cohesive and as much as I was pumped when the actual take down occurred, I was not pumped at all in the movie's take down... at any rate as much as some seem to appreciate this movie, I on the other hand would not recommend spending the money to see it... Argo was much better.
