'Secrets of Seal Team 6' Shows Digital Reenactment of Bin Laden's Death (VIDEO)

'Secrets of Seal Team 6'Discovery took us inside the 'Secrets of Seal Team 6' (Sun., 9PM ET on Discovery), but one of the more compelling moments of the special wasn't a secret at all. It was, rather, a visual presentation of the operation that took out Osama Bin Laden.

While the graphics in this presentation weren't even on par with the top-of-the-line video games currently on the market, it was enough to help us visualize exactly what happened during the 38-minute raid that killed bin Laden.

For the people devastated by the events of 9/11 directly, as well as the rest of the country and world, it's a strange piece of closure. None of us were there when the world's most wanted terrorist was shot and killed, but now we can say we "saw" how it happened.

Completely agree but... FYI animations were done in 3 days (total of 3 minutes in character animation) in a standard production this is what storyboards would normally take. A gaming studio takes 18 months to produce a game with a staff of 500-800 people. Consider the whole film was produced in about a week when this films usually are produced in 16 weeks. This is an important factor to consider before passing judgement.

You guys say "not even on par with the top of the line videogames" have you seen the top of the line video games? Top of the line videogames are the pinnacle of animation in the entire world. This depiction isnt on par with the top of the line videogames of 1997

is it because they took down Osama then disappeared with the body before anyone knew about it - and with no casualties?
