Movie Review: Zero Dark Thirty

zero-dark-thirty-2012-poster03Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty (A) is an extraordinary procedural film that plumbs the depths of terrorist tradecraft, intelligence gathering and hitting one’s target. Expertly written and filmed, it is anchored by a sterling performance by Jessica Chastain. You may already know the ending, but this journey is well worth taking.

I've reviewed films for more than 20 years. Current movie reviews of new theatrical releases and direct-to-video or streaming films are added weekly to the Silver Screen Capture movie news site. Many capsule critiques originally appeared in expanded form in my syndicated Lights Camera Reaction column.
