With assistance from the Obama administration, the people behind "Zero Dark Thirty" had incredible access to top military and CIA officials.

But some of those officials now say, the torture scenes are not accurate when it comes to the tactics against Al Qaeda terrorists to glean info about the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden.

People leaving the Britton 8 theater on South Dale Mabry in Tampa Friday didn't seem to mind the use of torture to secure information.

"That's the way war is. I guess. And you have to accept the good with the bad" said Marci Richman.

Another movie goer agreed. "I suppose they have to do certain things for certain reasons. I don't know. I'm still so shook from that movie. I'm upset" said Dorothy Farrell.

The movie could prove to be a stumbling block for the president's choice to be the new CIA director.

John Brennan is waiting for hearings on his confirmation, and he was with the agency when the torture techniques were being used.

Current CIA officials deny the movie depicts what really happened.
