Can a film keep you gripped and on the edge of your seat, when you already know the ending? Zero Dark Thirty is proof it can. we always knew a film documenting the capture of Osama bin laden was always going to be Oscar bound, but we didn’t realise it was actually going to be an amazing movie.
we also didn’t realise Jessica Chastain was going to be incredible, she was utterly amazing a wonderful performance, my choice for the academy award leading actress category. Kathryn Bigelow as once again made a fantastic film that lives up her previous masterpiece The Hurt locker.
Yes it is extremely long and yes maybe just slightly it looses your full attention at times, but then a well times action scene grips you straight back into the movie. Strong 4 stars for the movie and Jessica Chastain gets 5 stars.
