Following the September 11 attacks on the United States, a decade-long hunt began for Osama bin Laden, the head of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda.

The movie follows the efforts of top secret CIA intelligence forces, who rented a home in Abbottabad, Pakistan near the compound where bin Laden was believed to be in hiding. The official code name of the mission was Operation Neptune Spear and on May 2, 2011, a special force of Navy Seals carried out a raid that brought the terrorist down.

  • 5 stars "Excellent film, perhaps a bit too cerebral for the action/adventure crowd. Politically, this film just puts it out there and lets the viewer make up their own mind about the moral aspects of the war on terror."
  • 2 stars "I found this movie to be pretty boring.. I wish I could of just fast forwarded to the end for when the mission started, and even then I already knew what was doing to happen. I’m glad I didn’t pay to see this movie. Americans trying to make money and to make themselves look like “the heroes”"
  • 1 star "This movie was absolute crap. Nothing but propoganda and poorly done at that.. I would give it zero stars if I could."
