Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Rendition has multiple crisscrossing plots, a cliff-hanger climax, and a strong current of hope -- that an individual's conscience can triumph over careerism and bureaucratic moral blindness.

Geez, Louise. How can you take a topic this important and turn it into a trivial non-entity? Why am I even asking this question? Just hazard watching this piece of borat and, if you can choke it down, you'll see for yourself. I mean, does anyone watching this even care about anyone in this movie? Shouldn't we? This ain't fiction, friends; it really happens. A lot. Cripes . . . what a lousy job of movie making all around.

A political thriller that starts well and asks some relevant questions. Has a slight twist and some good actors on show but overall left too many questions unanswered.

this movie was not well recieved by critics or fans, and im not sure why. i liked it a lot. the story was intriguing and powerful, the acting was solid as was the cinematography, and the film delivered true likeable characters as well as true villians. the hero of the film came from an unlikely character, and the ethical concerns involved were difficult to judge. the close of the film could have benefited from another 10 minutes of info, but overall this was a solid film.
