I have to say until watching this I don't recall seeing anything about it. Although I should have seeing as I find Jeremy Renner a remarkable actor. Oh Ray Liotta is in here too. Not too sure that it's a good thing, but he isn't always in stinkers. Also Richard Schiff and Michael K. Williams in another crime related film I decided to check out back to back. In fact this is the 3rd film just this m... read more

A solid drama film, I understood it perfectly. The start was slow but once the second act got started it became a film that really worked. Jeremy Renner has had a few good roles, but this is probably up there with one of his best. I thought it had tight direction and by far a tight script.

The first hour is great and exciting, looked like it was on a good roll, unfortunately it starts going downhill, however it is still an enjoyable action-thriller film with decent (and good-looking) actors ;)

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- September 2015 (22 movies items)

" HBO Now- 1hr. 51min. First Viewing While it is too slow for its own good, Kill the Messenger works thanks to the inherent emotion of the story and a superb central performance from Jeremy Renner. Had the movie been a little less low-key, then it probably would've a whole lot better. As it is, it's a solid movie on the importance of the fourth estate."
