Movies of the week
I would not be wrong if I assert that “Zero Dark Thirty is a bizarre title to handpick for a movie! But if you take at look at what this film is all about, you’ll not poke fingers at its title, as it very much justices the crux of the theme.
Zero Dark Thirty” elucidates on the burgeoning challenges America faced as it somehow always found itself a few miles short of capturing Osama Bin Laden, every time the world’s most feared terrorist seemed within reach. When he was finally calmed forever with gunpowder, one of the most covert, extraordinary anti-terrorist operation had been executed. America had astounded the world with an unbelievable feat by its top-notch marines.
In the movie, Jason Clarke plays a touch CIA officer named Dan, who has become a master of human behavior; he knows how to make the toughest of nuts crack and make them swallow their confidence that they are invulnerable to any intimidation. The way Dan dissects into the facts, will make any bad guy lose his night’s sleep, so surefire are Dan’s ways of getting to the bottom of issues.
Jason Clark as Dan shines throughout in his role. After knowing Dan, the on-screen character, I wondered if there is a real Dan, operating out there for CIA, putting his life on the life without a second thought, to meet the national interests.
The words oozed by Jason Claerke over a recent interview came to the recue of my dilemmatic mind.
He says, that there are many Dan’s out there, with the duty above everything else attitude. However, he makes it clear that he didn’t meet the real Dan.
