Ideology Referendum or Just Hollywood?

By Cubafriminican
Written September 01, 2008
As much as I love Don Cheadle, I was profoundly disappointed with this move. TRAITOR is a movie disguising itself as exposing and challenging religious ideology -- Islamic ideology specifically -- that has nothing to do with religious ideology. In the end, we get the same result that we would get on any major American news show analzying "terrorism," Islam, and religion. No new perceptions, no analysis of dictum, just one "savior" who sees everything the "right" way, which of course is the American way. There's a very strong component of "we" and "us" and "our" that always comes back to the U.S., and I found it insulting -- to Islam and to my intelligence. (By the way, I'm Roman Catholic.) Every character in the movie was a stereotype and so purposed to be only the thing they were supposed to be. Perhaps, therein, is the statement...??? But all of the predictability and all the preaching made me not want to delve much further, except to simply enjoy the action and my popcorn.

Excellent Anti-Militant-Islam NOT Anti-Islam

By JackoFlick
Written September 01, 2008
This is a well-produced, well-acted suspense thriller on Militant Islam targeting America. Realistic and believable with deep insights into the psychology of terrorist and independent lover of true virtue: deep love of mankind and moral responsibility for one's actions at all times. The hero never takes the collectivist 'cop-out' of 'I was only following the word of God' or 'the orders of my leaders.' If you like seeing a courageous man who thinks for himself and has the courage to act on his own analysis and understanding of the truth, you'll love this movie.

Traitor makes you think

By Barbsta
Written September 11, 2008
I wasn't sure about this movie with a terrorism theme but it was excellent. It gives you lots to think about from both sides of the terrorism issue and has enough twists and turns to keep you engaged. The biggest plus is that Hollywood can actually make a good action movie without offensive language and over the top blood and guts. Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce were both very good. Everyone should see this movie.
