Having won an Oscar for directing The Hurt Locker (dramatising the experience of US soldiers fighting in Iraq), Kathryn Bigelow began work on this cinematic chronicle of perhaps the biggest revenge saga in American history. When al-Qaeda terrorists attacked the Pentagon and World Trade Centre in September 2011, President George W. Bush announced a military response that would ultimately see the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. At the heart of the operation's aims was the capture or execution of Osama bin Laden. Ten years on, this film tells the story of the deadly mission which finally succeeded.
No war is ever without shocking stories, and that much is proved again in this tough but important documentary about the conflict in Afghanistan.
