The Good & The Bad - Movies Watched In 2017 (196 movies items)

"This is a movie that I was on the fence about seeing, simply because it seemed like just another movie about a whistle blower. It is so much more than that. It is about journalistic integrity, corporate greed, good vs. evil, and standing up for what you believe in, no matter what the cost. It pulls no punches about how far the tobacco industry would go to hide the truth from the American public about cigarettes, but it never seems propagandised. Russell Crowe and Al Pacino give top notch perform"

"Russell Crowe is the insider trying to expose the truth of the mega-business of tabacco and Al Pacino is the outsider who finds himself involunteerily pitted against the corporate politicks of the media which both men were counting on to help in the cause. Watching both actors on screen is an example of the kind of movie chemistry that can result from the combination of solid acting abilities along with the directing and writing prowess of Mr. Mann. And all this without the need of any special "
