Still from the film "Zero Dark Thirty." Zero Dark Thirty

"Zero Dark Thirty" is up for a Best Picture Oscar this Sunday, but the movie about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden has been condemned by some politicians who say it misrepresents the U.S. government's use of torture.

The film is also getting little love in Pakistan, where "zero Dark Thirty" is set. Pakistanis are upset, they say, because the film gets so much wrong about their country.
