Excellent.Quick moving, well done story.
‘Traitor’ is a thought-provoking thriller that isn’t based on the normal Hollywood formula. The film explicitly manipulates friendship and trust for the sake of national security but it does so while conscious that exploitation, to that extent, has a devastating cost. Whether it can be defended, by allowing the deliberate killing some individuals for the greater good is certainly controversial but can it be justified?
interesting and intriguing movie.
Great movie. Found it compelling and very watchable. Don cheadle was great as always.
Really great, 1.5 years on I accidentally thought i hadnt seen this before, but I had. It was excellent rewatch value.... a good rewatch is usually a good movie.
Great film, you really don't know until the end !!!!
Did not enjoy this movie at all and stopped before the end of the film. Story too convoluted to follow and I got lost more than once. Boring and not worth watching.
Damn fine movie. Great plot and another realistic performance from Don Cheadle
A great movie, had my attention from start to finish. An important movie for our times as fundamentalist Islam grows in power.
Dragged on a bit, but still entertaining. A bit like The Kingdom, but not as good.
Not as good i thought it would be with a cast with Guy Pearce and Don Cheadle. the acting by them 2 was good it was story which was boring and just dragged on for to lone, could have been a good movie.
Very good story - don't worry about the slow start, it picks up. The story is about an undercover agent for the Americans, or is he. The FBI are interested. Touches on areas of good muslim/bad muslim, what is treason really, how far can an undercover agent go to protect his cover. Great ending, you want to stand and cheer.
Despite some problems with pace, this was not a bad movie. Very well cast, with some unexpected (and predictable) twists and turns in the plot. For once I did not feel that the cameraman, editor, director and cast were on speed. There were times that it really needed some get up and go, but the casual attitude most of the characters portrayed was somewhat more like real life people in normal circumstances. This had the makings of being a really good film. Tighten up the script, give some humanity (which was lacking to me) to the Islamic extremists, and then the story would have provided a true conundrum, something that we Westerners would probably have never really understood, but that is beside the point. The extra half a star is for Guy Pierce who not only looks taut and terrific, but is developing a strong independent acting style that is truly appealing.
We found ourselves comparing this terrorist thriller with "Body of Lies" and found that whilst it was very good, it wasn't quite as good as the Russell Crowe/Leonardo Di Caprio blockbuster. Don Cheadle is superb and Guy Pearce and the rest of the cast provide adequate support. Not sure about Jeff Daniels in his role though. It does keep you guessing for a long time and the builing of tension is well done. A bit scary if you think too much about it. Definitely worth watching. 3 and 1/2 stars.
It's an interesting take on things but i found this too slow. Good story and loved Guy Pearce but i did find myself drifting.
Straight down the line, straight-forward thriller presented from a different point of view. Turn your brain off, put your feet up and enjoy - you'd be hard to please if you're disappointed.
I'm shocked Americans made this film. Don Cheadle is absolutely awesome and the story is told from a viewpoint that has never (or very rarely) been seen in commercial film. It is told without sentimentality or bias and gives good insight into suicide bombers motivations.
A much better story line than I expected. The boy wasn't looking forward to watching it, but enjoyed it in the end. Not too bad.
Fantastic performance from Don Cheadle.
