Zero Dork Thirty

So I just watched Zero Dark Thirty and I think they really missed out on a great opportunity to give the film a mind-blowing twist ending. When the young CIA analyst Maya opens the body bag containing the body of Osama bin Laden(SPOILERS!!!) , how much cooler would it have been if she unzips the bag and finds…HER OWN LONG LOST FATHER!  She screams and collapses into a sobbing mess. One of the SEAL team members sees this and then looks at the camera and says, “Looks like we’re going back in!” Having set up the premise of the upcoming sequel, we roll credits. Alas, that opportunity was missed, and therefore a possible franchise was killed before it could begin. That’s what happens when you don’t get M. Night Shyamalan to direct.

All is not lost, however. If they make a gritty, stylized reboot of the film, preferably with the help of Zack Snyder, there may yet be a chance to turn this into a successful series of films. With plenty of CGI and slow motion shots,Zack could potentially set the stage for future sequels such as Zero Dark Thirty II: Osama’s Vengeance, Zero Dark Thirty: Son of Bin Laden, and prequels such as Zero Dark Thirty: The Rise of Al Qaeda.
