CinemaVisitor Erik95 - I didn't expect anything less from Kathryn Bigelow. It's a spot on thriller again that kept me on the edge of my seat. Excellent filmmaking.

Bryan Lienesch95 - I'm not sure this story could be told better in 100 attempts. People will come and watch for its historical and personal importance, but they'll leave satisfied solely off of Kathryn Bigelow's vision.
