Kill the Messenger Reviews

In Captain Phillips, the filmmakers make the protagonist the good guy, but in Kill the messenger, they leave a gray shade over the hero in question. Sure, he gets to drive a motorcycle like a Hollywood action hero once, but he's not the uber clean guy one can rely on. That in itself makes it one of the better films we have seen this year.

Tanaya Ramyani


​If you are a fan of Jeremy Renner, don’t miss the film. He gives a fine performance as the staunch journalist, Gary Webb. ​Kill the Messenger is a vital story in the history of modern journalism and media ethics, that mustn’t be missed.
