    Not a bad film, per se, but Bigelow's methods do come off as an attempt to rewrite history. This completely distracted me from the film. At times I felt as though I was watching pro-torture propaganda. So according to the film I'm supposed to believe torture led to info that led to the killing of Bin Laden? This is not at all accurate. Do a little research and you'll see for yourself, but don't take my word for it.
    U.S. Senator John McCain, who was tortured during his time as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, said that the film left him sick – "because it's wrong". In a speech in the Senate, he said, "Not only did the use of enhanced interrogation techniques on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed not provide us with key leads on bin Laden's courier, Abu Ahmed, it actually produced false and misleading information."[76] McCain and fellow senators Dianne Feinstein and Carl Levin sent a critical letter to Michael Lynton, chairman of the film's distributor, Sony Pictures Entertainment, stating, "[W]ith the release of Zero Dark Thirty, the filmmakers and your production studio are perpetuating the myth that torture is effective. You have a social and moral obligation to get the facts right."

    "is disgustingly feminist, all women are super smarts and solve all the problems, but all men are stupid and only serve to fire weapons."

    You got the part where that was a real story, yeah? And you'll be happy to know that now that women can serve, they may also serve to fire weapons in future movies. Welcome to the 21st century, Mitt.

    I don't even like the film, but that is one dumb comment!!
