Movie Info

Robert Jones (Nigel Havers), a Russian linguist working for a British intelligence agency, is found dead, apparently having committed suicide. However, his father, Frank (Michael Caine), fails to believe Robert took his own life so decides to investigate the death himself. Jones' investigations unearth Cold War paranoia and put his own life in danger from government agents whose only agenda is to preserve Britain's foreign relations, no matter what the cost.

Audience Reviews for The Whistle Blower

  • May 11, 2010
    (1987 Director: Simon Langton) Saw this movie for the first time a few weeks ago. But plan to watch it again tonight, Tuesday, May 11 on This TV 3.2 tonight. Sir John Geilgud co-stars in this story of a father in anguish over the unlikely and seemingly unnecessary death of his son--to cover up a secret. Kenneth Colley (Empire Strikes Back), James Fox, Barry Foster, David Langton & Dinah Stabb are among other co-stars in this moving drama.

    Pretty good, and Michael Caine as always is awesome.

    A decent cast try their best to hold together the kind of convoluted and hysterical cold war spy nonsense that looks rather ridiculous in this day and age. And fail.
