Movie Review: Zero Dark Thirty [Cotroversy Movie Alert]

A chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May 2011. 



Stars: , , Reda Kateb Kyle Chandler Harold Perrineau Édgar Ramírez  James Gandolfini 

Zero Dark Thirty (2012) on IMDb 

Speaking about controversial movies and Oscars. This one with a Political storyline involving the real story of the Hunt of Devil turned Person, and the commander of the worst Terrorist Attack and the meaning for United States and Citizens and Soldiers.... ...o yeah sure this movie have to have the word "Controversial" written all over the place.

There's a lot of criticism around the Torture Scenes in this movie... quoting myself on MovieReviews.com , and I'm might be 'Controversial'...

"Smart, not for Action Seekers"

"The torture scenes everybody's buzzing about are not the Focus of the movie, however when they are present they are brutal. Smart thriller that focus more in the plot and tell the story without being overwhelmed overbalanced or out of limits or cliche."
It is very well-known that tortures exist. The thing also is that the movie start straight with the torture scenes, after listening horror 911 phone calls during the attacks, while audience is looking a black screen. The reaction against the torture scenes were instantly and now several persons are putting on a Black List the name of Katherin Bigelow... c'mon seriously!

I think Bigelow did her Job here, the movie could be ended up a cliche, a stupid action-reaction movie to satisfy the Box Office... anyway despite the Controversy and everything, the Movie make his way to the top on the Block Office ;-).

Katherin Bigelow set the movie with the best doses of elements with a Subject that from start is already a huge controversyto plasm on a Movie: Osama Bin Laden and 911.

The technical aspects and Cinematography have also their good doses, without turning the movie in something difficult to watch for some viewers (i.e Traffic, Blair Witch Project, Cloverfield... you got the point).

Perfomamces are also a hit, nobody actually highlights like for an award (except for Jessica Chastain--- although James Gandolfini as C.I.A Director is awesome) anyway don't misunderstood my words, is because the movie is not pointed to highlight the characters or show a 'Hero' (this might be why the movie became Controversial), however Jessica Chastain works her way to bring all the attention of the Movie. Kyle Chandler is also somebody to name, he is also on Argo, and I think The Academy should honor him at least by having him as Presenter.

Due to the Movie being Controversial, I totally disregard it from the Oscars (no Controversial Movies win the Oscars --- (Brokeback Mountain JFK...) however I personally consider Zero Dark Thirty one of the Best Movies of 2012

A little long might be its only sin.

Score: 8.75/10
