Rendition

Jays Rating:
Actors: / /
Director:

The law “Extraordinary Rendition” allows United States agents to transport terrorists to offshore sites where anti-terrists laws don’t exist and is the premise behind the political thriller Rendition. When an Egyptian born Chemical engineer played by Aramis Knight disappears off a plane his American born wife played by Reese Witherspoon contacts an old friend played by Peter Sarsgaard who is an aid to a senator for help. In the meantime The C.I.A director played by Meryl Streep sends a young inexperienced agent played by Jake Gyllenhaal to oversee the torture on the suspected terrorist. Even though this film is full of stars none except Sarsgaard are used or perform to their full potential. There are a few subplots happening in unison and somehow the director keeps it from becoming to complex. The movie also asks some good questions and I have one of my own. Maybe my ears are really sensitive but what deaf person okayed the lady who is supposed to be singing, humming or maybe you would even call it screaming during the dramatic scenes on the soundtrack. (In fact it sounded like a cat was run over by a car.) Even with the few problems I liked this film and I’m giving it a B rating.

This movie has been given a R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
