I've often wondered whether low budget movie producers actually take the time to research their work or ensure at least some level of quality in their work. "Traitor's Heart" is just one of those films where you have to ask this question.
The plot is simple: solider goes to war, gets sold out (and hit with a TLAM cruise missile, for that matter), suffers from psychological problems, then embarks on a quest for truth.
The dialog in "Traitor's Heart" and the scenes are very poorly scripted, not to mention close to insulting to the intelligence at times. The ending courtroom scene is basically a poor man's "A Few Good Men" where you already know before watching the scene that something stupid and pithy is going to happen that will vindicate the hero in just the span of a few minutes.
All in all, "Traitor's Heart" is tough movie to tolerate watching, and it doesn't even have the accidental, 'comedy of errors' humor of most low-budget films.
If you absolutely must watch a low-budget popcorn movie to get your quota for cheese in, you might want to consider films such as "Escape Under High Pressure", "Storm Catcher", and "Interceptor".
