The War on Terror suddenly got interesting...
Verified purchase
Mention Iraq or the War on Terror and most moviegoers’ eyes will glaze over like doughnuts. Not even 2008’s big Oscar winner The Hurt Locker made any kind of impact comparable to the wild abandon of Coppola’s Apocalypse Now or the clinical brilliance of Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket, the two greatest movies about the war in Vietnam . Traitor, like all the other Gulf pictures, fell into a box-office abyss. “A small gesture of goodwill goes a long way in this part of the world,” FBI agent Guy Pearce tells his hot-head partner, before it all blows up in their faces. They’re tracking Don Cheadle, a Sudanese-born American Muslim who sold stolen Semtex in Yemen to Afghan rebels. This cleverly edited conspiracy thriller - from a story by the sardonic Steve Martin - sketches a bleak picture of the state of play in the world at large. No wonder Homeland Security can’t tell its assets from its evidence.

A must see movie
Verified purchase
A very good film dealing with a familiar story in a different and refreshing way. The film moves at a steady pace keeping the viewer interested right to the end. This is a film with a plot made realistic by the actors so if you like car chases that defy the laws of physics or fights scenes were 20 vilains wait patently as the hero dispatches them one by one then this is definitely not for you

Brilliant movie, story, direction, acting, music!
Verified purchase
Brilliant story, brilliant acting, beautiful music, cinematography to die for -- what more could one want! Don Cheadle is electric. Cloak-and-dagger story but about human beings despite their warped thinking. Must see, and not just for Don Cheadle fans.

Great Film

Don Cheadle doing what he does so well.
Can't fault this film in any way.
All the actors, led by Cheadle, did a great job. The storyline was believable. The twists were great.

4.0 out of 5 stars
An unusual post 9/11 conspiracy thriller.
Verified purchase
It's an unusual film, this one, and difficult to categorise. It should fit into the spy/conspiracy thriller genre but it doesn't; there are few set piece action sequences and it doesn't build to an all-loose-end-tidied-up explosive climax. What we get is a clever, complex, unpredictable and thought provoking take on the current American obsession with Islam extremism; there's enough action to maintain the suspense and to keep the story rolling along at a satisfying pace but it is not the film's raison d'être. An excellently cast, written & directed film, it is definitely one we'll watch again.

A convoluted plot line which works in the end. Pay attention as if you miss a bit then you will be lost
