Review: Kathryn Bigelow “Zero Dark Thirty” Exposes Bin Laden Hunt and Kill
ShowBiz411 ^ | Roger Friedman Sho

Posted on 11/25/2012 6:51:57 PM PST by njslim

If anyone worried that Kathryn Bigelow’s movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden would be a political statement promoting Barack Obama they can relax. Bigelow and Mark Boal have made a very focused and harrowing thriller that centers on the real life female CIA agent who was obsessed with catching and killing bin Laden.

Posted On DRUDGE - first reviews of ZERO DARK THIRTY News is Obama is almost completely absent from the film which focus on the CIA and in particular one agent determined to track down Bin Laden

In truth CIA has a group of "targeters", many of them woman who assemble intelligence for raids or drone strikes on high value terrorist leaders

It’s still going to be heavily fictionalized

Is that the National Geographic one? If so, I saw a few minutes of the beginning and obam was seen off tv as very concerned...blah, blah, blah. I turned it off so I wouldn’t puke. Maybe the person who did the review didn’t think it was political, but I certainly did.

“President Obama makes a brief appearance seen off a TV and it’s not necessarily positive. While American intelligence is water boarding prisoners, Obama is seen saying he doesn’t believe in torture.”

Close...Odumbo is still in it but briefly according to the article.

There have been the occasional article about this woman over the last few years here on FR.

She’s a good agent.

I know how you felt. We post-production guys talk to each other even though we’re all rivals but I know the guys who did the post-editing of that wretched propaganda piece. They too wanted to puke, believe it or not but they’re professionals.

The Seal on the mission who wrote “No Easy Day” mentions her two or three times.

No the National Geographic one is a different movie. Its more like made for TV, Zero Dark Thirty looks pretty cool.

BOYCOTT HOLLYWOOD!!! Do NOT give them your dollars. They later use them to call conservatives horrid names and donate to anti-American politicians. DON’T let them manipulate you. They occasionally put out movies that appeal to middle America but only to generate dollars to use against the American way of life.

After Bengazi a film that suggested Obama was worshipped by SEALS would have risked looking totally idiotic. What if after 10 years the full truth came out showing he didn’t lift one finger to help them? It would be a disaster for the film makers.

Originally it was supposed to air right before the election —obviously they were scared to death and decided to play it safe by totally changing to content and release date.

We don’t have to wait ten years to find out he didn’t life a finger to help them. We already know that he didn’t life a finger to help them.

Having read “No Easy Day” (great book, BTW), I’m interested to see how they twist his reality for the Obamunist hisself.

What I really want to know is why Bigelow clearly had access to inside information and nobody said boo to a goose, but “Mark Owen” was practically hung for treason by the MSM and the other administration flaks for exposing secrets in his book?

Please do not falsely accuse any volunteer Moderator of being Obama supporters or protectors. Please do not post any call for terrorist strikes, terrorist attacks, nor any calls for violence. Please do not re-post pulled comments or threads. Thank you.

I didn’t post a call for terrorist strikes, terrorist attacks, nor any calls for violence. To say so is sheer stupidity. I have posted that post over 20 times and no one has misunderstood it until now. That was not the first post pulled that was too critical of 0bama.

I won’t see it. Not one thin dime for Hollywood...and they are already touting this ‘film’ as an Oscar winner. feh.

Notice the one reviewer throwing a shot at George Bush. I despise these people.

Found out all I need to know reading “No Easy Day”
