Don Cheadle Stars in Traitor
« on: August 27, 2008, 11:07:36 am »


Special Agent Roy Clayton of the FBI likes to play by the rules, but he's about to find out that between moral night and day is a murky, perilous twilight. When the CIA and the FBI begin to work together to unravel an international conspiracy, the spotlight falls on Samir Horn, an American Muslim and former soldier with apparent connections to any number of terrorist operations. Agent Clayton becomes consumed with discovering the truth about Horn -- is he a villain, an undercover hero, or something in between?

I've been seeing commercials for this flick for the past month or so and I'm really excited to see it!  Don Cheadle is an extraordinary actor and is greatly underrated (as we all know).  Is anyone else planning on catching this one?

fantastic movie, just got back.  I'm speechless, never before have I seen muslims and Islam potrayed so accuratley on screen.  The jordanian military operators in the beginning were shown to be professional and competent, and the terrorists were not just blind religious fanatics, they operated at a level rivaling any world power spy agency.  That is the way any professional terrorist organization is, to think anything else is ignorance, I don't admire them for it but one shouldn't underestimate their enemy. "Mighty whitey" by no means swept in to save the day like you would expect in a typical hollywood movie.  The ending was even atypical, nothing remotely hollywood or michael bay about this movie.  I thought it was tighter than my favorite Bourne movie (the last one).

I saw it. I wasn't that impressed. I thought it was a well acted movie and Cheadle gave a complex, 3-D performance, but the movie needed more action, faster pacing. Overall though, I like how it muddied the waters and wasn't completely black and white. It's not a bad film. But it's not one I'm dying to see again either. Sort of like Traffic, another Cheadle film.
