‘Zero Dark Thirty' a respectful look at recent history

Movie Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

Imagine a History Channel program with a few interactive sequences, but remove all of the commentary and throw in more than enough time for reflection. That’s pretty much what you’re presented with here, though it was a lot less patriotic inflated and was respectful enough not to include Obama in super tights pulling the trigger himself.

I will say it might be something perfect for a modern history class with plenty to be dissected and as long as you can take war related violence, it fits for wide range of age when it comes to content. That said, I might watch it again to catch things I missed while yawning to stay awake and recommend if the above is your preferred genre style. In the end, I’d say “Zero Dark Thirty” deserves a final verdict of three and a half out of five missions accomplished.
