The Whistleblower Reviews

Blake Griffin
We Got This Covered

The Whistleblower offers fantastic performances from the entire cast. It's very atmospheric with grisly authenticity and a truly moving plot.

A dark, uncompromising look into the disturbing world of human trafficking.

Weisz's best role, and best performance, since "The Constant Gardener.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Common Sense Media

The thriller stuff is very soft, and the docudrama stuff is too focused on "Oscar moments" (i.e. huge expressions of outrage and torment).

Yes, The Whistleblower has its heart in the right place. However, that heart is bleeding a little too much.

Eric Melin

The Whistleblower goes off the rails a little -- I guess in an attempt to create more drama out of an already dramatic situation. As the plot devices pile up towards the end, it's a bit frustrating because there's a good movie in there somewhere.

Movie Metropolis

This is bleak terrain, but Weisz's performance helps us get through it. And as real-story films go, The Whistleblower is as accurate as can be.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Weisz is made for this kind of role; from "Constant Gardener" to "Enemy at the Gates," few actors can do absolute, unshakable conviction so well on screen.

A reasonably taut story of political intrigue, international corruption and one woman's determined fight for justice

The Age (Australia)

The closing minutes of the film suggest the most challenging parts of the story still remains untold.

Orlando Weekly

Don't let the impressive cast list, which includes Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci and David Strathairn, fool you: This is the Rachel Weisz show.

A first-rate one-woman-against-the-system drama, a film benefiting from grim recreations of an ugly reality and a stellar cast determined to expose it.

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

It's a good film with a strong central performance. The problem is that the film isn't as strong as the performance.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Structured and shot like a quality premium-cable channel police drama, this fact-based story might have had more impact as a documentary.

Craig Mathieson

[Weisz's] restraint offers a cold, evaluative gaze that makes what transpires all the more telling, and in the absence of direction that can make something more out of these elements than just condemnation, that becomes a strength.

At the Movies (Australia)

Instead of capitalising on a really fine performance from Rachel Weisz in the leading role, Kondracki makes a real mess of it.

Scott Murray
Sydney Morning Herald

This is a truly depressing film, without any sense of release. You may even be tempted to give up on the human race while watching men casually trade and rape girls for a few measly dollars.

Leigh Paatsch
Herald Sun (Australia)

While the facts of the case demand this film can do no more than administer one big booster shot of buzz-kill, it is Bolkovac's ferocious will to right so many wrongs (expertly channelled by Weisz) that keeps you glued to the screen.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

While it's overstuffed with characters - and not entirely satisfying as an entertainment, the film does manage to remind us of the human capacity for rationalizing atrocity. And the human capacity for doing the right thing nevertheless.

If the film occasionally falls into melodramatics, it's hard to see how a story like this could have been told otherwise.
