A taut international thriller set in the treacherous world of espionage operations, Traitor stars Don Cheadle as Samir Horn, a Sudanese born ex-soldier with a complex web of international connections being heavily pursued by FBI agents.

The story involves a cat-and-mouse game between Horn, who’s suspected of illicit activities in Yemen, and an obsessed FBI agent, Roy Clayton (Guy Pearce), who’s determined to track him down. When contradictory evidence emerges regarding Horn’s activities, Clayton is forced to question whether his quarry is merely a disaffected former military operative or something far more complicated.

With relentless pacing and plenty of twists and turns, the pursuit crosses several continents with a highly anticipated face-off. An action-adventure juggernaut, Traitor is an impressive spy thriller that will keep audiences guessing until its stunning climax.

Grade: B+
