This movie was a good suspenseful film, but I didn't get the point. The chase, the suspense was built really well. But why? What was the director really trying to say? The message passed me by. Was this an inside view of terroism? A double agent? A man reacting to the horrible death of his father and a revenge movie? I just can't find the key, nothing I come up with makes sense, or fits all the pieces together.    This film had a ton of 24 feel to it. Don Cheadle is not Keifer …

Don Cheadle stars as former U.S. Special Ops Officer Samir Horn and Guy Pearce plays the FBI agent hot on his trail in "Traitor."

There's a message in this film that the ends don't justify the means, and the characters are led to question whether it's right or …

Weren't we past this? I really thought we were. When are people going to get past this whole "black bar" issue? Growing up as a fan of widescreen was not easy for me. Having to deal with VHS, for many years I couldn't watch movies any other way except for the 1.33:1 aspect ratio (full screen), when some of my favorite films were filmed in 2.35:1 (cinemascope). Then DVD came along, as well as some informative sites, and widescreen was finally getting some much needed attention. Now we live in the …

"The truth is complicated," says the tagline to this latest Don Cheadle film. Too right it's complicated, especially in a movie like this, where the line between good and evil, right or wrong, is not so much a line as it is more of just...      Cheadle plays Samir, a man who was born in Sudan. In 1978 his father, a devout Muslim, was blown up in a car-bomb attack. Shortly thereafter Samir moves to the USA and is raised by his American mother. He then goes for a career …
