Ridiculous fictionalization of events and mega hype boost a film that 'documents' the story of tracking a Bin Laden carrier pigeon back to his compound--where Bin Laden is captured and killed by American troops in May 2011. In what departs from standard military procedure, most of the operation is executed to the Veruca Salt whining of underling CIA agent, Maya, who has gradually "manned" up after months of hardening her heart on a middle-eastern U.S. military base.
Jessica Chastain, plays that CIA agent, Maya. While Chastain is lovely to behold vacillating between bouts as an angry subordinate and staring off vacuously toward Islamabad, crying over the death of a frenemy, I'm trying to reconcile the fact that she's up for an Oscar for it. This cup o unsweetened tea is a tepid performance.
