"Traitor" with Don Cheadle

Before seeing "Traitor" I had seen the trailer which made it seem like a "Bourne Identity"-style kind of movie. It is suspenseful, almost too suspenseful. Lots of waiting around for cool spy moments which are few and far between. Mostly it's watching Cheadle act like a true believer in front of the terrorists he is trying to infiltrate. Cheadle is excellent, but I guess I have been spoiled by "let me hand you the plot" movies. It kinda reminded me of "Traffic" but with just one storyline. Good movie, but needed some small payoffs before the big one at the end. Hey, my mind is mush. Special notice: Aussie Guy Pearce actually has a decent southern accent (according to my Californian ears.)
