I thought the movie was well crafted, and politically sanitized. Did not see either side get more credit than the other in regards to the subject
matter. It just threw everything out there, and let the viewer decide what to make of it. Therefore, was there any cheerleading for the use of
torture, or as the politicians would call it, "Enhanced Interrogations?" Not by my estimation, but only a depiction of the techniques used by the
intelligence community at that time.
In other words, "Here it is, and you decide if it was justified or not?" I did not notice one instance where the film went out of its way to glorify
it. In fact, the movie was more of a procedural drama than an action packed shooter. Most of it was all dialogue, and few spots of action here and
there for good measure. Basically, it showed what I would expect a CIA analyst would do on a day to day basis in regards to flying out to some
backwater, scouring over mountains of data, listening and watching interrogation recordings, and so on so forth. In other words, no Jack Bauer! The
movie put out everything that is declassified for people to make up their own minds about how they feel about it.
