Suspense/Thriller
After a suicide bombing in an unspecified North African country, an innocent Egyptian chemical engineer from Chicago is abducted by the CIA and flown to that country, where he is tortured, and where his plight affects a wide circle of people, especially the conscientious CIA agent in charge of his "extraordinary rendition" (Jake Gyllenhaal), the engineer's pregnant wife (Reese Witherspoon), and a sympathetic US Senator's aide (Peter Sarsgaard). But that's not half the people involved in the bombing and its aftershock, and sorting through the characters is a full time job, made harder by screenwriter Kelley Sane and director Gavin (Tsotsi) Hood's awkward asynchronous flashbacking. Without the looping, it would have been a fine anti-"war on terror" drama. As it is, it's still fun to watch Meryl Streep as a CIA witch, Alan Arkin as the expedient senator, and Israeli actor Yigal Naor as a police official with family problems of his own.
