I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a nice cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, even if the movie itself was not really amazing, I’m afraid, it still turned out to be a fascinating story though.

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

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 ;)

A good movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a nice cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, even if the movie itself was not really amazing, I’m afraid, it still turned out to be a fascinating story though. Basically, as long as they were focusing on Gary Webb’s investigation, the whole thing was slightly difficult to follow because of the rapid-fire dialogues and the number of characters involved but it was ultimately quite spellbinding to behold. However, at least half of the movie was about vindicating Gary Webb’s name who definitely deserved it but, to be honest, it was not as interesting as what he had discovered which was truly quite mind-blowing. The main issue, as far as I was concerned, was that Webb himself complaine” read more

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."
