CRITICS OF "Kill The Messenger"
Rolling Stone

October 10, 2014

It's oversold and under-reported. But Kill the Messenger flies high on Jeremy Renner's all-stops-out performance as 1990s-era journalist Gary Webb. Flaws aside, the film inspires a moral outrage that feels disconcertingly timely.
South China Morning Post

April 06, 2016

The script by former journalist Peter Landesman, who recently directed the medical drama Concussion, does a good job of simplifying a complex real-life chain of events.
Movie Talk

March 07, 2015

Jeremy Renner is on terrific form... but the rest of the movie doesn't quite live up to his impressively nuanced performance.
The Film Stage

February 26, 2016

The film doesn't demand that you now respect Webb or sing his praises, but it does ask you to look at the cracks in that tranquil façade, and to keep looking, no matter how much it seems to fracture.

October 14, 2014

Kill the Messenger does a credible if not dazzling job. In fact, the movie is a lot like the reporting that inspired it: a good introduction to a diabolically tangled tale.
Globe and Mail

October 10, 2014

A resonant journalistic cautionary tale gets packaged as a hokey thriller in Kill the Messenger, a movie with a message that isn't nearly as urgent as it needs to be.
Observer (UK)

March 08, 2015

It's sporadically gripping but ultimately rather frustrating fare, leaving us intrigued enough by the conspiracy-theory backstory to want hard documentary evidence rather than mere dramatic licence.

October 10, 2014

The story of a crusading reporter's determined search for truth, "Kill The Messenger" gains its not-inconsiderable power by not being the kind of movie that particular description might lead you to expect.
New England Movies Weekly

May 12, 2015

The muddled movie contains all the elements of a top-notch muckraker, deployed erratically and to increasingly diminished returns.
Detroit News

October 10, 2014

Drugs, government, truths, mustaches. "Kill the Messenger" is an admirable journalism thriller that takes on a lot of big subjects.
