Just saw this movie. Loved it.
I liked that it showed the majority of intel work is boring, tedious, and quite mundane. There are no car chases in exotic cars, seductions of beautiful people, or workplaces that look like they came out of Architectural Digest. In fact just the opposite. It depicts government workplaces as drab and uninspiring.
The final Op that shows the raid on the compound in Abbottabad is depicted with no music in the background. There are no final physical confrontations with the combatants. The individuals killed during the raid are all shot to death with no fanfare or snappy one liners.
Kudos to Kathryn Bigelow for a film well done.

They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.
