ZERO DARK THIRTY (2012)



Director:
Kathryn Bigelow

Writer:
Mark Boal

Starring:
Jessica Chastlin
Jason Clarke
Joel Edgerton and others

Zero Dark Thirty is not a conventional thriller. Boal and Bigelow combine for the first time after their Oscar winning Hurt Locker. The script is good but lacks urgency at times. Bigelow is great behind the directors chair but the movie belongs to a certain Jessica Chastlin playing a ruthless CIA agent who will do anything to succeed. She is a big name to look out in the future. A decent one time watch, but no where even close to the movies it is competing with for the Oscars.
