Traitor (2008) PG13 - 4 Stars

It was very strange watching Don Cheadle play the bad guy. He's just such a great and divisive actor, he had me believing he was a bad guy though we usually see him in roles of good. Pretty scary and intense look at living in today's world of terrorism with it's determined terrorists devotedly awaiting their turn at ignition. Sorry for the short review but you can't say much about the story without giving too much away. I do think it warrants an "R" rating though.

Former U.S. Special Operations officer, Samir Horn (Don Cheadle), makes it to the top of the U.S. F.B.I.'s most wanted list. He's become involved with helping terrorists learn how to build proper detonators for the bombs they plan against innocent civilians. FBI agent Roy Clayton (Guy Pearce) heads up the investigation to bring him down.

Sounds interesting.
Don Cheadle is always the good guy...
maybe he is in an image makeover.
