The Chico News & Review, 30 Oct 2014 – Nearly two decades after a reporter exposed a connection between the CIA and crack cocaine in America, Hollywood chimes in with a major movie This one has all the ingredients of a dreamed-up Hollywood blockbuster: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist uncovers a big story involving drugs, the CIA and a guerrilla army. Despite threats and intimidation, he writes an explosive expose and catches national attention. But the fates shift. Our reporter’s story is torn apart by the country’s leading media; he is betrayed by his own newspaper. Though the big story turns out to be true, the writer commits suicide and becomes a cautionary tale.

Boston Herald, 10 Oct 2014 – Like that on-the-nose title, "Kill the Messenger," based on a book of the same name, may be too obvious for its own good. The story of reallife San Jose Mercury News journalist Gary Webb, who uncovered a plot by the CIA to fund Contra guerrillas in Nicaragua with drug money, features a powerful turn by actor/producer Jeremy Renner. Is it possible that when Reagan-era America declares a "War on Drugs," the CIA would engineer such a heinous plot, fueling a crack cocaine epidemic and decimating inner cities? It apparently is. Instead of being feted for his investigative reporting skills, Webb, a solid family man with three happy kids and a loving wife (Rosemarie DeWitt), who has forgiven him for a past infidelity, draws the ire not only of the government, but also such "venerable" institutions as The New York Times and The Washington Post because he had the nerve to scoop them.
