is a dramatic film, but definitely an issue story you can follow.
It's about the government's policy of detaining
terror suspects without due process and flying them to another
country for interrogation and using torture to get information.
This personal story of unfortunate circumstances
starts when some terrorist rings the wrong number on someone's
cell phone -- then he's toast.
There's no one star in this movie. All
characters are involved.
It's worth seeing and very watchable. Let's
hope there's not much truth in it.
Ripped from today's headlines, Rendition
appears to be a high-powered political drama the viewer can sink
his or her teeth into.
But despite an all-star cast and a first-rate
director, it plays like controversy lite, a powerful message
film that roars like a lion but soon turns into a mediocre lamb
-- thanks to a poorly written script.
a serious political film about a pregnant Midwestern woman who
discovers that her Egyptian husband is being secretly held by
the U.S. government.
It's a complex dramatic story that involves
the outsourcing of terror suspects to secret overseas prisons
where they can be tortured.
The problem I had with this movie is it
leaves little room for debate.
In the end, this covert abduction is oversimplified
and you're not even sure if the husband is innocent or guilty.
