Zero Dark Thirty is a 2012 American action thriller directed and co-produced by Kathryn Bigelow with screenplay by Mark Boal, both associated with The Hurt Locker, another military action thriller that won the Academy Award for Best Picture and five other Oscars in 2009. Billed as "the story of history's greatest manhunt for the world's most dangerous man," the film chronicles American efforts to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. It stars Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Chris Pratt, Kyle Chandler, Édgar Ramírez, Joel Edgerton, Ricky Sekhon and Mark Strong. The film had its première in Los Angeles, California on 10 December 2012

The film's rocking a 99/100 aggregate on Metacritic. Unbelievable. And judging from what I've been hearing about the film, it will walk away from the Academy Awards in February with some serious hardware.

On top of that, there's a bit of a controversy brewing over the water boarding scenes, which from my understanding, were real, (not in the film of course, but in real life) in the movie that supposedly got intel that contributed to Bin Laden's capture.

Any thoughts? Discuss away!

I'm reading an interview with Jessica Chastain at the moment, and it's just getting me even more excited for the film than I was already. I'm not much of a war-film kinda guy, but I liked The Hurt Locker a lot, and I've heard just as good things about this than I have about that. The only thing that's a slight impediment to me is its length... but I'm sure I'll get over it when I'm finally in the cinema to see it. January can't come soon enough! :D

<3 She is scrumptious. Gotta check her out in Mama in January too.

Having seen The Hurt Locker and remembering its Oscar success, I'm pretty optimistic for this one. I just wish they hadn't pushed back the release date to January, otherwise I'd have already seen it. :p
