Review: Some stories are just too true to tell. Kill the Messenger tells the tragic true story of a journalist/reporter, Gary Webb who works for the San Jose Mercury News, uncovered a shocking scandal after he wrote a series of articles in 1996 claiming that the government and CIA was partly responsible for bringing crack cocaine to the U.S. in the 1980s to secretly fund an illegal war to stop communism. (Since its a true story, theres nothing to spoil.)The serious implication that the U.S. government had deliberately spread cocaine to African-American neighborhoods to help finance a secret war supporting the contra rebels in Nicaragua evoked outrage among the African-American community and create racial tensions at the time the articles was published. However, all began to fall apart when some of the countrys well-known newspapers (The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times) made personal attacks against him. Gary Webb paid a huge price for writing the articles. Soon, his own life and past mistakes became the focus of the mainstream media and his articles are under heavy scrutiny by various media and the public.Since the film is actually based on a true story, the film most likely take a few liberties with the story (there might be some factual inaccuracies) and the events depicted mostly likely dramatized to make it a far more interesting movie, it still doesnt eliminate the fact that most of the events occurred in the past.Jeremy Renner gives his best lead role performance in portraying Webb as a real, flawed human being. The film takes time to explore the characters life, showing how his obsession to uncover the truth slowly consumes and destroys his life…His decision to reveal the story has created a serious blow not only to himself, but to his family as well, as people who knew him slowly turned against him and drove him into depression. This essentially provides the necessary character development required for the audience to relate with.Kill the Messenger is not a typical thriller you normally see on screen. Truth to be told, the film is rather slow-paced and it really lags in the mid section. Theres barely any action to excite the casual moviegoers. Throughout the film, there are no government officials or CIA agents threatened him with violence. Instead, they choose to let the mainstream media destroy the man by destroying his credibility as an investigative reporter. Soon after, his reputation was tarnished and his career was ruined. Its a cautionary tale that shows us things are never what it seemed to be. If this film was made 15 years earlier, it could have vindicated Webb and ultimately prevented his suicide in 2004. Its a shame that it took so long for this film to appear in cinemas.Rating: 7.5/10http://yjcool.blogspot.com/2014/10/movie-review-kill-messenger.html
