In comparison, I must say "Seal Team Six" was a far better film as far as plot. What this film offers is an obsessed Jessica Chastain who borders on insanity. Her character seemed unrealistic at times, but compelling at other times.
Much has been made about the politics of this film which I found they took great lengths to be non-controversial. Sometimes facts have a bias to them. There is excessive torture at the beginning of the film. Information is gathered from people that have been tortured, but not necessarily because of it, as there is a disconnect between the two events. The audience is allowed to decide on its effectiveness. Seal Team Six appears late in the film, almost as an afterthought. The other film was superior in presenting the Navy Seals.
Obama and Bush aren't mentioned per se. Obama appears speaking in the background on TV. There is a new policy concerning torture that is alluded to, but the details are not given. One remark was, "You don't want to be the one caught holding the dog collar."
There is a reluctance on the part of some to invade the Bin Laden compound due to the WMD/Iraq disaster although no blame is specifically placed.
Chastain does an excellent job and is the best aspect of this feature. In an idea world she would have played Maya in "Seal Team Six.Read more ›
The BIG problem with the story, and the reason I can't watch it anymore (I've seen it twice) is that it is chicken doo-doo compared to what really happened (read Hersch, NYer) or to your local Intel guy, and I am needful for truth… at least, as much as could be obtained.
That said, the facts relating to torture, the facts that, when SEAL Team Six practices and practices and then practices with their eyes shut and therefore their missions are not-quite-perfunctory-but-you-know-what-I-mean, the collateral everywhere, or the facts of sheer hostility the world over, are also worth watching. Besides, I think Jessica is sexy (SORRY!!)
