I have seen and read every credible report, documentary, and program I can find about the OBL raid, more than once each, and I found ZD30 accurate in every reportable aspect (except one, below). andArgo, by contrast, has an entirely invented ending, Hollywoodized for drama.Agree with your assessment on the raid, probably as accurate depiction we will know. Overall it was enjoyable watching ZD30, seeing a scene coming up, and knowing how it will end based on knowledge from reading newspapers, magazines, etc. But I did think ZD30 had many hollywood dramatics, that while not taking away from the movie, left me thinking, that's a little bit Hollywood there. Kind of like the ending of Argo. Perhaps I'm wrong, but do you think the CIA operative who was at the heart of the story and focused on the messenger actually was:- having dinner with her colleague in the Marriott restaurant when the explosives went off- exited her home to drive to work and had multiple gun shots to her front dash and windshied- was in the process of texting her work colleague while that collague died in the car bomb blast along with 6 other CIA agents.- flew to the Navy SEAL base to let them know her personal reasons why she thought it was Bin Laden in the complex - had a military aircraft arrive for her and her alone. Have a pilot ask, "where do you want to go now?". How's that for Hollywood dramatics?Perhaps minor items, but they did have me questioning accuracy. Argo changed the ending to make it more dramatic, but the ending was accurate, they all managed to escape.
