Zero Dark Thirty

Intense. The movie had me the whole time. Funny thing is you know the outcome but are still immersed in the story. Glad we got that prick and who cares how we did it.

I was good, i think it was the first "re-enactment" of it. Maybe on demand or netflix now.

Saw it Sat. night w/the wife. Worth the $. Dead silence when we killed OBL and at the end. I thought there would be clapping when we shot him.

I haven't seen it, and won't. It was made by the same woman who made Hurt Locker. That's all you need to know, to know the accuracy of such a film.

Yes, I heard it was an exciting movie but the accuracy is quite suspect.

It almost makes you wonder if a half-fiction reenactment is really the right thing to do. It's borderline exploitation.

Spence, every single war movie with maybe the exception of Band of brothers is a half-fiction reenactment, no?

I heard the movie was less about the raid and more about the CIA involvement from early on.

Thought it was well done considering the topic. It does drag - especially the gathering of intell - but that is the REAL nature of the intell game. Nothing is cut and dry and it takes a long time to place the puzzle pieces in intelligence gathering. Enhanced interrogation scenes were uncomfortable but done in context. Even if the raid scene was accurate it won't be acknowledged. Chances are it was close enough but then again its a movie. Much better film than Argo IMO.

From what I have heard (pretty consistantly) the first 15 minutes or so of SPR are very real. Just what I have heard.

now..................................... i understand

read this about a marine chopper pilot now mechanic
and his comments were very thought provoking
as well as quite the scene he painted.....that i could visualize it

quote: (as he talks to doug Fine )

"I had an epiphany landing my chopper in country," the mechanic told him. "Time slowed and the bullets flying by on either side went in slow motion and I saw this insane loop: these guys that are shooting at me are getting their financing from the countries that we're paying to get the petroleum to put in my chopper to land here to fight these guys so we can get the cheap petroleum. What if we just took the petroleum out of the equation? Wouldn't that be a stronger America?"
he's right
