While I did not go to the theater to see "Zero Dark Thirty" by Sony Pictures, I did view it recently, due to the political controversy surround it. Many referred to it as a political tool to aid President Obama with reelection and it was widely criticized for exploiting and  politicizing a terrorism matter concerning Osama Bin Laden. The Sony filmmakers were also publicly slammed for being given access to top secret classified materials to make the film, which was a national security risk. 

Spoiler Alert: "Zero Dark Thirty" centers around a CIA agent named Maya and her investigative hunt for violent terrorist and mass murder, Osama Bin Laden. She watches as her colleagues are killed while on his trail. The film shows in detail the night raid in Pakistan that leads to the death of Bin Laden and his men. Too many elements of this story were left out. It didn't create mystery, just an unfinished piece that could have better explored the evils of terrorism.
