BUFFALO, N.Y. -- This weekend, the new controversial film "Zero Dark Thirty" is debuting at movie theaters across the country.
The film is billed as the story of history's greatest manhunt for the worlds most dangerous man, Osama Bin Laden.

Now the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, or N.R.C.A.T., wants people to know facts about U.S. government sponsored torture.

Volunteers from the group handed out pamphlets to movie goers as they walked into the theater in Buffalo Friday night, concerned that the movie has the potential to make Americans more accepting of torture.

"Torture is not something americans should be involved with, even with reason.  It's illegal, and its politically harmful and brings hatred around the world," said Stephen Hart, the group's local advocate.

The volunteers believe the movie implies that the use of torture by the United States produced critical intelligence, including the finding and killing of Osama Bin Laden.

Mr. Hart also told us he has yet to see the movie himself.
