Zero Dark Thirty is one of the darkest movies in the world. It is the movie based on how Navy Seal Team Six capped Osama bin Laden in the eye. It is the movie full of torture and tragic behavior. It was so dark that the movie was criticized a lot in this regard.

It was being said that showing bad things is the same as celebrating them. The scenes were very powerful and genuine. To bring out the natural impact in the role, the actor himself underwent acme of torture. He voluntarily underwent waterboarding so that could apprehend what his victim was enduring. He admitted that a simulation of simulated drowning is different from real simulated drowning.
