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.

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

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.

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.

[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.

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.

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.

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

It is no comfort to reflect that The Whistleblower would be a first-rate thriller even if all of it were fiction.

It's a powerful and engaging film which gives no easy answers but tells an important story.

It's a story that should be told and Rachel Weisz's knockout performance is filled with integrity. My only reservation lies in the storytelling which never elicits the heartbreak it should.

a film so tough, anguished and emotionally devastating that you can safely assume that Kondracki has scratched words like "compromise" and "safe" from her personal vocabulary.

The inherently compelling real-world subject matter of The Whistleblower ensures that the film remains somewhat engaging, though largely by default.

As vital as the message is, director Larysa Kondracki is making a movie, with the conventions of the thriller genre occasionally stifling the story's inherent terror.
