  1. I gave up after 45 mins of this turd. I don’t know if the intention of the director was to have viewers “understand” why terrorists kill people or not. I was so disgusted by it and the anti-Americanism in the movie, I would have thrown it away if it had been mine. All the subtitles were equally annoying. Nothing like a religion that glorifies killing others.

    Thank God, not “Allah” I didn’t waste my money buying it.

    God bless America!

  2. Good movie on Blu-ray…..This Blu-ray disc + Digital copy earned one star…….Reason, the digital copy ONLY works with WINDOW base computers.

    NO where on the package is this stated.

    You only become aware of this. when you attempt to down load this digital copy……DVD’s you open can NOT be returned unless the disc is defective.

  3. Some might not agree, but I thought this movie was one of the most boring movies of the year. Every movie I have ever seen with Don Cheadle has been terrible. I turned Traitor off about halfway through as it was like watching paint dry.

  4. I am rating the quality of the Video on Demand version of the movie, not the movie itself.

    I downloaded this movie and played it on my 42″ wide screen TV. The picture only occupied about half my screen. I tried increasing to full screen, but the images were excessively pixilated. I’ve rented other movies from VOD that were okay, but this one was terrible. I’m amazed that VOD would post such a poor quality version of this excellent movie.

    If this rating is removed by the VOD folks, I will post it elsewhere on Amazon.

  5. 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 year 2008 (soon to be 2009). People are educated. We know the difference between full screen and widescreen. Widescreen TV’s are almost common now.

    This whole “black bars” complaint nonsense should be behind us. Yet it’s not. Here I sit with a new movie, “Traitor,” staring Don Cheadle, and the movie starts with the dreaded words I hoped to never read again: This film has been modified from it’s original version. It has been formatted to fit your screen. When the title starts it’s in it’s 2.35:1 aspect ratio, but once the titles are over and the movie starts it switches to 1.78:1, the size of a widescreen LCD/plasma. I couldn’t believe. We’re finally at the point where most studios are refusing to released cropped and modified DVD transfers, and here we have a movie that’s been released on DVD in a cropped only version? Not only that, it’s cropped for widescreen TV’s, an audience who likely knows what the black bars are for.

    This is offensive on so many levels I can’t tell you. I have no idea if the BluRay edition has this problem, but if it does, then buyers should return it and demand a refund. Altering the image, even when it’s altered 25% as opposed to 40%, is not allowed under any circumstances.

    Opps, it appears I forgot to review the movie.

    Well, the movie stars Don Cheadle as an FBI agent who’s accused of being a traitor to the United States. And the movie…well, the movie pretty much goes on from there. Depending how early you figure out the secret will determine how much enjoyment you get out of the film. I found it pretty predictable myself, but your millage may vary. Sadly, even if this was Oscar worthy material I couldn’t recommend this DVD with it’s cropped image. I suggest you stay away and let studios know that we, as true movie fans, will not accept cropped transfers, widescreen or not. We want the original images, the way they were supposed to be seen.
