Rent this one when it comes out on DVD...it was a decent movie, but not one that you need to pay ten dollars to go see. This movie is fairly predictable, and quite a snoozer. Not all that horrible, but not a suspense thriller either!

I've never liked Don Cheadle before. I actually avoided films he was in. His acting is Oscar worthy in this movie. The plot is intelligent (you need to pay attention, though). It's not your typical action movie, so that might turn off some people. However, there is realistic violence and terrorist activity. I felt they tried to show that one man's love of God and commitment to Islam put him smack in the middle between the US and Islamic terrorists. I didn't think it was one-sided at all, as some other persons have stated. Cheadle's character was both American and Sudanese/Muslim. He lived in a no-man's land between two worlds with only his direct connection to God as his gauge. It's a can't miss movie!
Oh, and I couldn't believe this was written by STEVE MARTIN! Great job.

Iam not sold at all, this movie looks like a bad Jason Bourne movie I think.

this was just a terrible movie overall....slow paced, no action, utterly stupid....
propaganda, and bs mostly...the storyline was just stupid....I had no clue what was going on
throughout the first part of the movie and wasn't interested in the plot or content.
you can go if you want but I wouldn't waste my money or time...I would try a thriller ro
something remotely interesting with better content plot script storyline etc...

I have huge respect for both Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce. They have tremendous talent, so I am sure this movie will be fantastic. I will definately be going.
