An American abroad discovers that a series of crimes may have a greater significance than imagined in this drama. Rhodes (Jeff Daniels) is an American human rights activist who has come to a small Mexican border town to help oversee union elections at a factory owned by a United States firm. While in Mexico, Rhodes learns that things have not been quiet around town lately -- a number of people were found shot dead in a tunnel just across the border in the States, and a pair of Californians who came to Mexico to do some trail riding have disappeared without a trace. Rhodes has a hunch the recent crimes may have something to do with the hotly contested upcoming election, and with the permission of a pal from the State Department (James Spader), he joins up with Castillo (Clifton Collins Jr.), a police detective who is looking into the tunnel deaths. I Witness also co-stars Portia de Rossi. … More

...James Spader is undoubtedly at his scene-stealing best here as a smarmy government agent.
Audience Reviews for I Witness
Despite the best efforts of Jeff Daniels and the criminally underutilized James Spader, I Witness falls flat. The script is a bit of a mess, the action sequences bland and uninspired, giving the film an overall TV movie feel. While Portia de Rossi, partner to Ellen Degeneres, is sexy, she was a liability for this film.
Bland thriller, it?s all very familiar. The cast is nothing special either. Way too slow moving and the lack of character development doesn?t help keep the viewer interested. It?s one of those movies where you wonder why they even made it.
An interesting film that was notable for Daniels and Collins performance. Worth watching and it was easy to engage this film.
