Babel - another Syriana?

The trailer for this film looks very good! It also has both Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett who are both, in my humble (humble yeah right!) opinion, excellent actors. It also has another actor that many of you may not have heard of and that's Gael Garcia Bernal who starred in Amores Perros and the recently release film about Che Guevara's travels around South America on a motorbike. The book was called The Motorcycle Diaries and the film is probably called the same but I don't recall.

I also respect Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, the director from Amores Perros, who happens to also have directed this movie and is probably the reason that Bernal is in it.

So everything is looking good for this moving EXCEPT the trailer looks just like the trailer for Syriana did and I hated that movie. Okay I'm going over the top. I probably didn't hate Syriana but I certainly wouldn't watch it again.
