A pretty good movie that holds your attention as you witness the decade long search for bin Laden. The film also featured excellent performances from all the cast members. It was pretty cool seeing Chris Pratt in a more serious role, which he pulled off really well.
While the film wasn't action packed, it still had moments that had you on the edge of your seat. The ending was also very well done, with the camera utilizing night vision technology so you can see how the team sent in was seeing. For anyone interested in seeing one of the most famous manhunts in human history, this is a good movie to check out.
