  • CRITICS LIKE

    Well cast with good performances. Location and set design are excellent. The film is careful to avoid being anti-Islamic or pro-American gun-ho.

  • CRITICS DON'T LIKE

    International terrorism is not pretty. The film doesn't explain its premise so if you don't know what happened on 11 September 2001 or who Osama bin Laden is then Zero Dark Thirty will make little sense.
