Critics: Kathryn Bigelow proves herself once again to be a master of heightened realism and narrative drive in this retelling of the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden. - Los Angeles Times
- There is something definitive about Zero Dark Thirty as a piece of filmmaking, as though Bigelow is concluding the entire ordeal for us on the big screen, as a film that could well earn her yet another Oscar. - HeyUGuys
- What it does in the course of telling a seminal story of our time is what contemporary films so rarely do, serve as brilliant provocation. - Wall Street Journal
