    Bogged down at times by moody re-creations (often unforgivably accompanied by the strains of a muted trumpet) and endless footage of Bin Laden, Manhunt is not a definitive telling either. Indeed, its strength lies in its awareness that there is no way to completely tell this particular story.

    Far from a complete accounting of how the United States government tracked down and killed its Public Enemy No. 1--even the SEAL raid that ended with his death is hardly mentioned, much less described--this film might be better titled The Spooks Strike Back.
