"Everybody breaks bro, it's biology," maintains Jason Clarke's pitiless CIA interrogator in a gruelling opening torture scene. It sets the unsentimental and discomforting tone for this look at the decade-long manhunt for Osama bin Laden.
Jessica Chastain is convincing as Maya, a obsessive CIA agent grimly determined to slay the al-Qai'da figurehead. Deadly efficient film-making from an exceptional director.
