The director of the Academy Award-winning 2006 crime drama Tsotsi returns to the helm with this tale of a Middle East CIA operative who begins to have doubts about his latest assignment after witnessing the interrogation of a suspected suicide bomber by secret police. When Egyptian-born chemical engineer Anwar El-Ibrahimi (Omar Metwally) mysteriously vanishes on a routine flight from South Africa to Washington, his wife, Isabella (Reese Witherspoon), embarks on a frantic international search for her missing husband. At the same time, a CIA analyst (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrives at a clandestine detention facility outside of United States. As the interrogation of El-Ibrahimi gets under way, the CIA analyst is profoundly shaken by the unorthodox methods used by the man's captors, and quickly begins to reevaluate his assignment. Peter Sarsgaard, Meryl Streep, and Alan Arkin co-star in this topical political thriller penned by Kelley Sane and produced by Steve Golin.~Jason Buchanan
Intersections: the making of Rendition documentary
While this is not a meant for a movie review, this is a great movie! Best Buy shipped it properly and no damage was done. Through other competitors they just ship it in smile packaging causing damages, not Best Buy.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Rendition is a high intensity movie. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. The acting was superior. It raises a lot of questions for our world.
Yes, the fact that it deals with a touchy subject I am sure will facilitate some hot debate. Some people will love this movie, some people will hate this movie. The bottom line is as long as you are open to the subject matter, it forces you to think about what is going on in the world. This is exactly what the movie wants you to do. Outside of the subject matter, it is a thrilling movie that will have you glued to the screen. This movie was very well done. The acting is incredible and the characters stories are not just black and white. I would recommend watching this movie.
