Very Well Done
21 February 2014 | by iron-draculaSee all my reviews

I had read/heard many of the stories talked about in this documentary over the years but it was very nice to see them all put together in one form.

It gives great insight into what truly goes on behind the scenes in the intelligence community that most people are not privy to.

Anyone using the mindset of comparing this to Zero Dark Thirty are going about things the incorrect way. Zero Dark was a glamorized Hollywood story that actually was a project about the failure to capture UBL until ST6 accomplished their mission. Once that mission was completed, the script for Zero Dark changed.

This documentary starts before anyone in the intelligence community even knew Al-Q existed and how their rise to prominence was dealt with along the way.

Manhunt should give those that watch it a great understanding of how years upon years of hard work can and does pay off.

While not glamorous, the most important people in the battle against those who commit evil are the ones you know nothing about.
