“" The Whistleblower", gripping and unflinching thriller manages just that,to shock beyond comprehension.
“ Overall, 'The Whistleblower' is a very well-made, compelling and informative film, recommended for those who want to learn more about this difficult subject matter.
“ Though the film is genuinely compelling at times, its few risks make it a standard and unremarkable thriller.
“ In a simple powerful scene she walks through the empty club and finds wads of American currency, girls' passports, polaroids of sexual abuse and in the back-room filthy mattresses, syringes and a large cage complete with manacles and leg-irons.
“ Overall, a good but long movie that is worth watching if you can handle it.
“ This is compelling viewing and it's heartrending.
“ Heartrending and compelling .
“ She is stunning, absolutely gorgeous.
“Rachel Weisz does good work in this compelling story.
“ Her scenes with Rachel Weisz are a fascinating contrast of styles, with Weisz a more physical actor, more expressive and although some of the dialogue is not the strongest Vanessa Redgrave never sounds like she is reading from a script at all.
“ If you want to watch a well made movie which has some very good actors in and can cope with some sickening scenes (that have to be shown to show how the girls are treated) it is worth watching.
“ Predictable and quite slow.
“Kept me on the edge of my seat, feeling ashamed that we call ourselves civilized.
“ It is a magnificent and mind-boggling achievement, of the highest professional standard and level of excitement and intense nail-biting drama.
“ I really wanted to say good things about this film, but I found it confusing, slow and not as engaging as I had hoped.
“ A well-intentioned but formulaic thriller that sticks a little too closely to the script .
“ Whistleblower -- powerful, compelling and insightful .
“ Compelling and informative thriller .
“ I believe there is a way, but to Hollywood it would just be too boring.
“ When the film finds some energy, it's a lot more exciting.
“ The screenplay is fascinating, and it kept me in suspense the whole time, because even though it does not have the structure from a traditional thriller, the crusade undertaken by the main character demands a strong emotional response; and as well as we share her hope of a positive solution, we also feel her frustration when she faces the constant obstacles she finds from the mafia, the bureaucracy and even the enslaved young women, who are too scared in order to testify against their captors.
“ Plus I'm sure the way it happened in real life was much more exciting than this.
“ Worth watching .
“ Riveting performance by Weisz .
“It's the film's obvious predictable nature that makes my task of writing a brief plot outline without giving anything away a difficult one.
“The film is action packed from start to finish and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
“Fighting workplace conspiracy that is fueled by apathy and greed can be lonesome and Wiesz portrayal of a gritty professional is engrossing.
“ There's a subplot with Monica Bellucci's character that is a little dull and eventually inconsequential, but when the Weisz side of things is so gripping, it's easy to look past.
“ The Whistleblower is a fast paced, well made thriller well worth your time.
“"The Whistleblower" is a powerful, gripping and heartbreaking movie about corruption and human trafficking in a country devastated by the war.
“ It's well-crafted story, with stunning performance of Rachel Weisz.
“ I think it was a good plot,good acting and great to see a film about another whistleblower but by the words at the end nothing happened to the guilty and intimated the same is going on in Iraq and wherever we fire guns
“ So "The Whistleblower" is made to be just as exciting as the crimes are horrific, which can leave you a little detached from reality.
“ A smart and gripping political thriller.
“ These days it's become a rarity to find a political thriller that is intelligent, intense and intriguing.
“ How thrilling for Weisz's daughter.
“ It was a riveting moment to realize that these clubs were established for the men coming on international contracts and UN Peacemakers.
“ As a result, I find the film confusing.
“ A very emotional but long and slow true story about a former cop who uncovered a sex trafficking ring in Bosnia.
“ Based on a true story the concept is just fascinating and disturbing that something like this could happen.
“ Overall, despite the benefits of Weis' powerhouse performance and the uncompromised subject matter, this remains a well-intentioned but formulaic thriller that sticks a little too closely to the script.
“ Powerful, Gripping and Heartbreaking .
“ Keeps you on the edge of your seat to the very end.
“ It is a shame that her strong efforts and such potentially powerful material are contained in a highly formulaic narrative trajectory.
“ A powerful lead performance and a riveting story makes this a must see film.
“The only complain I might contemplate are the slow and confusing beginning, too much explications.
“ On the other hand it is a very slow moving movie that is at times hard to get through.
“ Even with all it's flaws, it is a very entertaining, although sad, movie.
“Sadly, in real life, practically nothing happened after the story hit the headline news.
“ The Whistleblower is equal parts entertaining as it is educational.
