after reading the book and waiting until it came out, i was overall impressed with this documentary-like film. albeit the movie was controversial with the torture scenes, it was still a pure cinematic masterwork with a powerful performance by Chastain. this thrilling film has many acts of violence, mostly in the beggining. we hear calls from 9/11 victims, then we are shown a man being tortured by beating, waterboarding, sleep deprivation, and crammed in a small box. other people are shot with blood spurt and are sometimes seen afterward. 4 explosions go off, one in London which injures many people (one survivor is seen with blood running down his face). another is a suicide bombing at the base which claims many lives. the other 2 are at a restaraunt and at bin Laden's house. grisly aftermaths of shootings are seen, with blood and gore visible. the film also contains a mans naked butt on display, plenty of swearing, and smoking throughout.
