“..though more brutish than elegant, "The Whistleblower" does have a certain charged, unvarnished power in its examination of how people can harm those they are enlisted to protect..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]
“..this accomplished debut feature avoids most of the usual pitfalls, channeling its outrage into a tense, focused piece of storytelling with a powerful sense of empathy..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
Review rate : B

“..succeeds, even if it hardly rewrites the genre. Based on actual events, it's staged with an understatement that's rooted in the muddy squalor of reality..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..has a choppy, fumbling screenplay that lurches between shrill editorializing and vagueness while sorting through more characters than it can comfortably handle or even readily identify..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
4 of 4

“..a grisly, authentic, meticulously researched, pulse-quickening political chiller about a hot-button topic that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
