So this movie came out pre-Obama, but they are using iMacs for the receptionists. This movie predicted the future!
Okay, so this is a pretty typical all-sides-are-good-but-all-sides-are-bad kind of movie dealing with terrorism. As per the norm, I think it paints the terrorist side a little worse than the other side, but I thought Rendition did an okay enough job of explaining why the character might be a terrorist.
I wasn’t so impressed with any of the performances, though there were a ton of great actors in this movie. It wasn’t great, but I wouldn’t say it was terrible. Though if I had to pick between “great” and “terrible,” I’d say terrible.
Oh another thing that stood out to me was how oppressive the score was. Very heavy handed.
