The Whistleblower Movie Review


Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
'The Whistleblower' is a gritty, disturbing film based on a true story, but treated with the urgency of a thriller. I'm going with three out of five for 'The Whistleblower'. The film is no doubt well-intentioned and, like Michael Mann's The Insider, it makes a point of humanizing the victims instead of treating them merely as statistics. By giving us back-stories for at least two young girls, and a peek into the homes and families they were uprooted from, you get a sense that these are real people, and that emphasizes the heinousness of the crimes against them. It's a film that will anger you. But despite its strengths, it doesn't quite pack the emotional wallop required for it to stay in your head long after the end credits have rolled.

Ratings:4/5 Reviewer:Nikhat Kazmi Site:TimesOfIndia

It's never been easy for a whistleblower. Even if the one in question is the real-life inspired character of Rachel Weisz. She plays Kathy Bolkovac, a former cop who once served as a peacekeeper in Bosnia and got on the wrong side of the U.N. for covering up a s** scandal. Watch it for Rachel as a body of patience, calm, determination and composure even during moments of helplessness while she is stripped off her last power. Special mention: the only time she actually bursts into fits of rage against the system -- she questions the system, she questions humanity, she questions countries and their policies.
