Zero Dark Thirty – Review


Kathryn Bigelow’s much anticipated follow up to The Hurt Locker hits cinemas tomorrow, and boy are you in for a treat.

Teaming up once again with writer Mark Boal, Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty is an intense and intelligent drama that will grip you and not let go until your heart is in your mouth.


Following the hunt for and the eventual assassination of Osama Bin Laden Zero Dark Thirty looks at the process of tracking down the worlds most wanted man through torture, investigations and tracking.


Zero Dark Thirty is truly an excellent piece of cinema, whilst it is a dialogue driven film, the characters and performances ensure it is never slow,  in fact the total opposite. It moves at a steady pace, gradually building tension that had my heart pounding.


The strong dialogue is done justice by the outstanding lead performance from Jessica Chastain as Maya, a woman determined to find the world’s most wanted man. The supporting cast including Jason Clarke (Lawless), Kyle Chandler (Argo)  Harold Perrineau (Romeo and Juliet) Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Britain’s very own Mark Strong are all captivating.


The final action scenes are shot with stunning expertise, replicating a sense of tension and chaos beautifully, drawing you into the centre of the action.

While it’s early on in the year, and 2013 is set to be filled with great movies, I can hand on my heart say this is likely to be in my top 5 films all year. 

The sunning cinematography, the intelligent writing and a stellar cast make Zero Dark Thirty the first must see movie of the year.

Zero Dark Thirty hits cinemas tomorrow.
