Trailer Watch: Zero Dark Thirty

I can’t say I have zero expectations going in, but I do have thirty worries about how overly flag-waving patriotic it will be.

Zero Dark Thirty

Plot Summary: The inside story of the Seal team that killed Osama bin Laden.
Release Date: December 19, 2012



Rating: B-
Commentary: While the overly simple design isn’t the most eyecatching, the “redacted” nature of the design keeps it from being utterly uninteresting. It does make it harder to read, though.
Rating: B
Commentary: Not really digging deep into the actual compound raid, likely being saved for the film’s climax, the film looks like it could be an interesting examination of the investigation leading up to the death of bin Laden. It will, unfortunately, be too easy to become a flag-waving bit if patriot propoganda.

Oscar Chances: The first feature from the first female Oscar winner for Best Director will obviously be a contender if only to show naysayers that they made the right choice. I still don’t think they did, but they will be lambasted if they don’t nominate her again even if the film’s mediocre at best.
