Not only is Kathryn Bigelow not into romcoms, she seems to be aiming at the complete opposite. Like her previous films (rather few of which I have actually seen, I must admit...) this one was dark, violent and has a very realistic ring to it.
It was also fairly technical and - from what I gather - comparably realistic in its depiction of the CIA's struggle to track down and kill Usama Bin Laden.
It was well-wrought, and all that, yet I'm afraid I kept losing track of the plotline.
I guess I'm more of a romcom gal, perhaps?
At any rate, 'The Croods' was way more fun!!
