The plot: Ballsy CIA officer Maya accepts a posting to Islamabad under Station Chief Joseph Bradley. She imposes herself on the team, which initially creates friction with colleagues Jessica, Larry and Steve. Over the next eight years, Maya dedicates her life to every scrap of intelligence which might lead her to bin Laden. Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, who reportedly operates as bin Laden's personal courier, becomes her focus and the CIA tracks him to a heavily guarded compound in Abbottabad.

Time Out

"This is an instant classic."

The Guardian

"Telling a nearly three-hour story with an ending everyone knows, Bigelow and Boal have managed to craft one of the most intense and intellectually challenging films of the year."

Digital Spy

"The outcome is never in doubt, of course, but Bigelow's sublime skill as an action director comes into play as she's able to create tense shoot-outs viewed through infra-red goggles in the dead of night."
