"Zero Dark Thirty" movie quotes follow the action of the military action thriller that chronicles the hunt for Al Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden by American forces. The film, based on the true story as discovered through classified documents, was produced by Annapurna Pictures, written by Mark Boal and directed by Kathryn Bigelow, who previously won several Academy Awards for her work on fellow military drama "The Hurt Locker." "Zero Dark Thirty" was given a limited release date of December 19, 2012, prior to its wide release on January 11, 2013.

In "Zero Dark Thirty," viewers get an inside look into the CIA as an elite task force searches for 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden. The film shows the operations led by the CIA in Pakistan, including research, surveillance and the highly controversial tactics used to capture and interrogate terrorists. The decade-long journey tells the story of just what happened from the attacks in American in 2011 all the way through when bin Laden was killed by United States special forces in 2011.

While President Barack Obama is not mentioned in the film, head CIA operatives, United States Secretary of Defense and former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Leon Panetta (portrayed by James Gandolfini) and one wise female agent, Maya (portrayed by Jessica Chastain) are included. Several Navy SEAL characters are also featured, though many remained nameless in the film, similar to real life. Chris Pratt, Edgar Ramirez, Joel Edgerton, Scott Adkins and Taylor Kinney co-star as the SEAL members.

For something a bit lighter, check out "Killing Them Softly," "Hitchcock," "Skyfall," "Lincoln," "Flight," "Playing for Keeps," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Anna Karenina," "This Must Be the Place," "Cloud Atlas," "Wreck-It Ralph," "Nobody Walks," "The Sessions," "Red Dawn," "Chasing Mavericks," "Rise of the Guardians," "Argo," and "Looper."
