Director: Kathryn Bigelow has explained that "it's a military term for 30 minutes after midnight, and it refers also to the darkness and secrecy that cloaked the entire decade-long mission."
"You can't run a global network of interconnected cells from a cave."
Usually when your watching a new movie, you don't know how it ends, generally you're not suppose to know. A surprise makes for a better ending, especially a happy one. Most people living in America knows how the story of Osama Bin Laden pans out and because of the limited knowledge we have about how the actual event went down, one can't help but be a little curious about the details.
When U.S military tactics make it to the big screen I assume that those tactics are then obsolete. No way would you broadcast your strategy and your preparation/cerebral approach to give the other team review material. So having said that, the tactics used in Zero Dark Thirty and the likes of Act of Valor are reason enough to enjoy a film like this. A peak inside of the most lethal branch of government.
War movies sure have changed in scope. You would think of Saving Private Ryan or Apocalypse Now when someone uttered war movie, now you think Call of Duty.and Black Ops style movies... as the world changes and we thrust through the age of information it only seems inevitable that these changes become more common place... and I'm alright with that.
Definitely Worth your watching and I give it a B+ letter grade.
