Code Name: Geronimo review

Death-of-Bin Laden docudrama

Racing Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty to the screen, this death-of-Bin Laden docudrama courted controversy when producer Harvey Weinstein’s plugged in extra Obama scenes just before the US election.

A mix of Bourne -esque Pentagon chin-scratching and shaky Call Of Duty shoulder-cams, the result is a smug national revenger that doesn’t leave much room for politics anyway.

Director John Stockwell’s ( Blue Crush ) made-for-TV jarheads do a good job, but they’ll be forgotten after Bigelow’s bigger names take down al-Qaeda again in time for the Oscars.
