Box Office
James Rocchi quote iconStark and tough and smart, Zero Dark Thirty is a masterwork from a master filmmaker, a truly exceptional work that combines the questions and qualms so often found in the grey areas of the real world with the kind of storytelling and art so rarely found in the shared darkness of the movie theater.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThe knockout punch of the movie season is being delivered by Zero Dark Thirty. You're in for a hell of a ride with this high-voltage thriller that digs with shocking gravity into the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden.

C. Fuchs quote iconWith a little editing and some greater humanity infused into it, this could have been brilliant. Zero Dark Thirty is solid and good overall, but not great.
