“Kill the Messenger”

“Kill the Messenger”

Release Date: October 9, 2014

Jeremy Renner was superb in this movie about Gary Webb, a reporter working at a small time newspaper who digs up the story of the decade. After discovering that the CIA played a part in arming Contra rebels in Nicaragua by using drug money from importing cocaine, Webb becomes the victim of one of the biggest smear campaigns in history. This was a story that I never heard of, but I was captivated for nearly the entire movie. Was expecting a better-quality ending, but with stories about real life, most of the time these type of stories do not end on a positive note.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars.
