This was a great movie!! I could not take my eyes off it not sure if it was based on a true story but you can bet it happened to someone somewhere. It had a nice twisted ending I plan on keeping this one.

Quite the interesting H'wood drama of the government program to make people 'disappear'.

This has also been called Gitmo'd (after Guantanamo Bay) whereby 'terror suspects' are spirited off to secret prisons around the world (and outside the US) for torturous interrogation. No rule of law and no constitutional protection required.

The character in the movie gives up the names of his childhood soccer teammates to placate the torturers.

Watch the movie and witness the erosion of civil liberty in America.

These things in the film have really happened.

Read the book Ghost Plane. It tells all about it.
