Very interesting, clever approach to the general topic targeted with this story, 23 September 2010
Author: charles000 from United States

Of course, I could watch just about anything with Lawrence Fishburne in it, but here, his performance and skill as an actor really shines.

That's not to detract from the others in this film. All of the principal actors delivered absolutely excellent, convincing character performances.

The story itself is a bit controversial, to say the least. It's not that I doubt this sort of "extreme" rendition occurs in current times, but there are various threads in this story which could be debated.

Of course, I won't explain the outcome here, you'll have to see this film for yourself for that. But it does deliver an "outside the box" outcome which is certainly different than most films of this genre'.

In a way, it does remind me a bit of the film "Unthinkable", another look into the murky world of extreme rendition, covert operations with a dark twist, and so on.

I would suggest seeing this. Even if you don't buy the implications of the story, the acting in this work is first rate.
