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.

Just average & half the time I didn't even know what was going on. I hate these movies with multiple stories going on.

A much stronger film would have measured the deplorable ethics of using extraordinary rendition with its results and debated its usefulness. This is not that film. It tries to cover an epic scope, throws in way too many characters, and even includes a plot twist involving time-shifting. The result is a film that is far too ambitious for its two hour running time, and by the end, it collapses under all the weight with a nice, tidy, typical Hollywood ending.

Good movie - very thought provoking. Not my usual type of film, but I did find it easier to follow than these types of stories usually are. Reese is kind of wasted in this - she's not bad, it's just not much of a part for her.
