An interesting and action packed companion to the big budget version 'Zero Dark Thirty',
This review is from: Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden (DVD)
From acclaimed producers of 'The Hurt Locker' and director John Stockwell in this made for TV movie. Previously aired on the National Geographic Channel in November 2012, it is an interesting and action packed companion to the big budget version 'Zero Dark Thirty'.
In the now well published events surrounding the search, mission and eventual death of America's most wanted terrorist 'Osama bin Laden'. A team of Navy SEALs are trained and dispatched to a compound in Pakistan, that the CIA believe houses bin Laden and his family.
This version focuses more on the 'get in there and do it' aspect as opposed to the time spent looking for bin Laden in 'Zero Dark Thirty'. This approach means it's not a documentary of the actual events, but a well made and entertaining action movie.
The film has a lot of critics and government officials citing a long list of inaccuracies to the story, most likely due to its rushed release.
On the downside, the power struggle between Gigandet and Mount and sub plot of the formers wife cheating with the latter - left me puzzled.
