A WOMAN’S HUNCH

Maya: I’m the motherfucker that found this place, Sir.

Brought to you by the team behind The Hurt Locker, the film is the dramatization of the events leading to the discovery and killing of Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda. Jessica Chastain really anchors the movie as Maya, a CIA officer, whose entire career has been focused on finding Osama bin Laden. While the chase was good to watch, the ending was really sad to watch because Maya’s world just crumbled around her.

The torture scenes were a little hard to watch but thank goodness there is no gore. It is incredible work and dedication because there is a lot of information yet not all of them is useful – some are just there to mislead and some are just waiting to be discovered. You’ve got to admire Maya’s persistence especially when she writes the number of days the team has been lying idle instead of doing something. Guess these guys still need someone (a woman) to push them to do something.

Oh, I spotted Fredric Lehne (the yellow-eyed demon in Supernatural) in the movie!
