This is one of those political intrigue movies which, if you have to take a restroom break, you may well be totally in the dark when you return. The film takes place everywhere from the Sudan to Spain to Toronto and L.A. as well as a few other geographical sites. Samir Horn (Don Cheadle) is a Muslim who is against extreme Islamic terrorist acts. However, due to a few slip-ups, he winds up responsible for several people dying by the detonation of a bomb. He attempts to make up for it by betraying his terrorist companions (hence the title “Traitor”) and helping the FBI to bring them to justice. He makes an interesting comment that one person who kills one innocent man kills the entire human race. He is feeling guilt when the son of a Baptist minister says that he who saves one life saves all of mankind. Along the way there is a lot of violence and corpses left in the wake.
Due to some strong language and the violence level, this film cannot receive our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
