  • Critic Reviews of "The Insider"

    New York Observer
    April 27, 2007

    What I didn't expect was an intelligently absorbing entertainment that ran for two hours and 40 minutes, during which I didn't once look at my watch -- just about the highest praise I can bestow upon a film these days.

    Time Out
    February 09, 2006

    The movie reveals Michael Mann's unparalleled ability to fashion taut suspense from unpromising material.

    Globe and Mail
    April 25, 2003

    Pumped up with sharp editing, vivid performances and a damning true story to tell, it's a morality tale with a hard contemporary punch.

    New York Magazine/Vulture
    June 18, 2002

    It's a good thing Wigand isn't a conventional, come-to-the-rescue hero in The Insider, because, although Michael Mann tries for a victory dance, there's ultimately little cause for cheer.

    Rolling Stone
    May 08, 2001

    Mann turns a moral issue into riveting suspense.

    Washington Post
    March 21, 2001

    Mann, who mastered style in his TV series Miami Vice and previous films like Heat, adds substance to the formula with the intensely dramatic, fiercely principled Insider.

    Common Sense Media
    December 28, 2010

    Fascinating whistleblower story for older teens.
    November 29, 2009

    A supremely suspenseful and riveting dramatic tour-de-force.

    Antagony & Ecstasy
    June 24, 2009

    Not a single shot could be improved in either lighting or framing; nor is there even a single cut that could be moved by so much as a frame without damaging the exactitude of its placement.

    Decent Films Guide
    October 29, 2008

    A sobering examination of corruption, courage, cowardice, and the sometimes catastrophic costs of telling the truth.

    Dark Horizons
    January 15, 2008

    Despite having no action scenes, a 2.5 hour running time, and based around the tired subject of tobacco, The Insider manages to be one of -- if not the best thriller of the year.
    September 24, 2007

    It has a buzz of excitement and complexity -- the sense that we're seeing the actual back-room decisions that affect lives.
