Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Rendition, while engrossing, does not grab us as it should. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 20, 2007

Fresh: A pat and generic, if serviceable, political thriller. – Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times, Sep 9, 2008

Rotten: If these new, allegedly topical movies are to make us feel anything -- to move us toward any action or even just toward any fresh realization -- they need to at least seem alive on the screen, instead of just courting our polite, measured applause. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: That it's embarrassingly plausible, that it depicts things that have happened and that are probably still happening, is enough to make Americans sick to their stomach. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 20, 2007

Garbage. Pure propaganda garbage

Unrealistic and ridiculous

This movie is horrible. Just another waste of time from hollywood. In the same league as "StopLoss" and "In the Valley of Elah". Garbage.


Do you thing this is not happening?
