Don Cheadle, as an American Muslim ex-intelligence-op explosives expert gone over to the Islamic jihadist dark side, spends much of this fitfully entertaining thrillers time when he isnt carrying out bombing missions against the US professing his faith and wrestling with his conscience. Which means it isnt exactly Bourne but what else is? Director Jeffrey Nachmanoff (he wrote The Day After Tomorrow) cooked up the plot with actor-turned-writer Steve Martin. It zigzags through a sub-Bourne list of world locales with Guy Pearce, Saïd Taghmaoui, Jeff Daniels, Archie Panjabi, and Neal McDonough in its wake (114 min.).
