Storyline

Maya is a CIA operative whose first experience is in the interrogation of prisoners following the Al Qaeda attacks against the U.S. on the 11th September 2001. She is a reluctant participant in extreme duress applied to the detainees, but believes that the truth may only be obtained through such tactics. For several years, she is single-minded in her pursuit of leads to uncover the whereabouts of Al Qaeda's leader, Osama Bin Laden. Finally, in 2011, it appears that her work will pay off, and a U.S. Navy SEAL team is sent to kill or capture Bin Laden. But only Maya is confident Bin Laden is where she says he is.

Trivia

In an unusual step, acting CIA Director Michael Morell issued a statement about the film emphasizing that while the production team had met with the CIA, the film is a dramatization and is not historically accurate. Morell specifically contradicted the film's assertion that "enhanced interrogation techniques", also known as "torture", had been of significant benefit in locating Osama bin Laden. Director Morell stated, "That impression is false. We cannot allow a Hollywood film to cloud our memory." See more »

no commonsense
31 May 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This film might be shot at Chandigarh, India, but don't the makers have commonsense to know that Indian made vehicle are not available in Pakistan, especially 'Maruti 800' (a product of Maruti Suzuki with GOI as share holder)... In Pakistan road signs are either in English or Urdu not in pure Hindi...

It is a question to all western film makers - is it necessary to film the naked buttocks of children playing on river bank to depict the sub- continent? Guys it is time to change your mentality... An advice if you really need these scenes, before having your shot please learn and understand the dress codes followed in various regions of subcontinent. Here in such a shot a bridge is shown with few kids playing below and some elders are side by. It is sorry to say that their dress code is of people from plans of Ganges not of Peshawar or Rawalpindi...
