100 Word Review – Kill the Messenger

I’ll admit straight away that I have no idea how much of this well told tale was true, but with Jeremy Renner in Hurt Locker form I don’t mind.

Kill the Messenger is a powerful story that really only begins at the point many would end. The discovery of the CIA’s shady activities in Nicaragua and California is shocking enough; it’s really the way in which they completely undermine Gary Webb’s professional and personal lives that is truly frightening.

A strong sense of tension and well-cast support combine with an interesting premise to make this a fine showing from Renner.
