View Full Version : Trying to remember the name of a movie...

It's basically a guy who's tortured for a given amount of time by some people. It's a "test" to see if he can with hold information regardless of the amount of torture. The people running the test say that eventually everyone will spill the beans, but it's about how long it takes them, or something like that.

I thought it was "The Recruit", but the description makes me think otherwise.

Anyone know?

It is the Recruit - DeNiro and the other fella, watisname thingamabob.

You mean Al Pacino. :)

And Colin Farrell.

There's a sequence in the movie where Farrell's character is indeed abducted and tortured and then finally when he cracks the wall slides open and he's in front of the classroom and it turns out it was just a demonstration, something like that. Not a great movie by my standards, but it could be the one you're thinking of.

Oh, so it is the Recruit? Damn.

I guess it could still be a different one, the sequence I described is only a short part of the movie. The entire plot went way beyond this exercise, but I forget how it exactly went (and I don't want to ruin it for everyone, :) ).

Yeah, I can't remember how long the part was, but I don't think it was the entire movie. I'll check it out.
