Propaganda film.

some fighting scenes were totally unnecessary, they were jammed into this hollow film to fill up the empty spaces.

The performances of William Fichtner and Robert Knepper were especially enjoyable.

Whether true or otherwise, what's compelling is the filmmakers decision to paint a somewhat negative picture on how those who were no longer useful, or have been milked dry, got discarded to a corner, whether to sink or swim was no longer anyone's business or interest.

and ends up with a confusing mishmash.

Low budget but ultimately entertaining .

the dialog among the team members was so bored, there's nothing to watch for.

It is so painfully slow, there is virtually no action--so it's value as an action movie is zero.

Even in Zero Dark Thirty things were a bit slow till the raid started so it's not fair to fault this one for being boring.

Nevertheless, it's still an enjoyable film.

Please, PLEASE don't waste your time.

Mix this with low budget graphics, shallow characters, and thoughtless bang bang, and you have a contender for the worst movie of the year.

Total Propaganda, can't believe it.

It might as well be called the Barack obama show , it was a worthless waste of time and money.

Instead, I got a thinly-disguised Obama campaign propaganda piece, with attacks on certain Republicans thrown in to ensure the point.

It was just a Pro-Obama election propaganda.

My advice: Don't waste wither your time or your money.

Its government propaganda that has little to do with facts.

Once past her scenes, you slip right back into what is a well made, entertaining evening filler.

I think its a good movie, except for the Obama propaganda aspect of it.

This film should have kept me on the edge of my love seat, not the toilet seat where I found myself 3 times trying to watch this film, and ironically where this film belongs.

political propaganda or .

Boring, political advertisement.

Film was completely boring.

All in all, this movie was poorly acted, poorly directed, poorly produced, historically laughable, tactically ridiculous and a waste of time, money and energy.

To those with intelligence and who are informed, it will be hard to ignore the fact that the man who was least responsible for the missions success and had to be dragged kicking and screaming to approve this mission, is made out to be the hero.

All in all, I enjoyed it and if you want to fill in some blanks on the Osama bin Laden it's worth watching.

I found myself yawning throughout.

It is so boring.

Political Propaganda at it's Worst!

What would normally be a very entertaining, well made TV movie about a Seal operation now becomes a sub standard replication of a historic event that is maybe much too important to be told in such a light format.

I was truly looking for an engaging 'documentary-style' film.

Yes it was low budget, yes it was TV movie or the same production value of it but that can make for some really crappy films and this was actually very entertaining.

Surprisingly enjoyable .

propaganda such as this and many more similar to it are harmful to our service members and those we wish to generate support from and helpful to those wishing to do harm.

We'll have to wait and see how the second, theatrical bin Laden movie will compare but while this one is flawed it's at least entertaining.

But entertaining?
