I thought this movie was a bit slow, but it was entertaining, Although Jake Gyllenhaal's performance was weak, he didn't quite make his work in this movie strong, Reese Whitterspoon did good work, but her performance was a bit weak too, was too disappointed that her role was not quite strong, Alan Arkin was entertaining, and Meryl Streep's performance was quite evil, and worth watching.

As a movie Rendition works, but as a moral indictment against the USA's complex fight against terrorism, it is a failure. Let me address Rendition, the movie, first. The current trend in Hollywood of using concurrent stories towards a conclusion, plus a time-line quirk, adds a bit interest to the story.

This was such a biased movie..I felt I was watching a politcal ad...The person arrested for terroism didn't even try to answer obvious questions which would have lead to his release. Characters were manipulated to make some anti-American point...This movie seemed very contrived to make a point that only thae writer could understand. I would not reccommed anyone waste their time on this movie

Great acting, plot a bit predictable. I loved the Arab actors, nice to give a more humane impression. Loved Metwally the lead actor who plays the role of the Egyptian American Engineer tortured in some far away prison. Loved the scenes shot in Morroco. THis film is a good reminder of how we whouldn't lose our Constituitional rights...and how fighting terrroism is about winning hearts and
