Starting a thread for reviews and opinions of this movie for everyone. I saw it yesterday and thought it was Phenomenal. Bigelow knows how to make a film. Definitely worthy of Picture of the Year. Acting was superb and the interrogation scenes were incredibly intense. Even though you know the outcome, I was shaking in my seat though the entire raid. Incredible attention to detail throughout, best experience I've had in a Theater in a long time.

Get the impression that there's an underlying message that we're worse off (from an intelligence gathering perspective) now that "enhanced methods" are no longer allowed.

What happens in the end? laugh I have heard a few mixed reviews on this it gets a bit drawn out but i cant wait to see it.

It was a longer movie but I didn't feel it got drawn out, they crammed A LOT into 2-1/2 hrs. I would've sat through another 30 min if they would've examined how the SEALs relentlessly trained for months. It kind of looks like they just got word and went in. But in the end, it's not about them, it's about the CIA. If it were a fictional plot, I could see how it wouldn't translate well. But because it tries to tell a real-life story as close as it possibly can, I think each scene has purpose and insight.

Thanks for the suggestions Smurfy! I read "No Easy Day" and enjoyed it. Didn't really see the hype around possibly revealing secrets and tactics. There was nothing in there that we didn't hear about on the news or see on Discovery Channel. But I can see how the SEAL community would be upset just about the fact that their business is even being talked about.

I thought it was an awesome movie and told the story well. The time of the movie goes by fast! Yes its 2 1/2 hours but it whips by, the opening in the dark is powerful and brings back the emotions of 9/11.

Agree,

Much easier to accept the scene that follows after having to listen to hopeless 911 calls from people getting burned alive.

Esquire has a story out today with an interview with the ST6 member who is supposedly the actual person who took out OBL. Good read.

I haven't seen the movie yet but it'd be interesting to see how the two stories stack up against one another.

The raid had a lot of similarities with the book "No Easy Day." To the average guy like me (and I would think most people reading this) the raid looked flawlessly executed on film. But they have a former SEAL on KFAN from time-to-time and he said the tactics they used when clearing the compound room-by-room were not portrayed well--smaller things like how the guns are held, muzzle discipline, banter between the men, etc.

Still a heck of a flick.

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
