not just a superb movie, but also an important historical document, right up there with "All the President's Men", with standout performances by Russell Crowe and Christopher Plummer especially, who both should've received Oscars for this, as well as should've the movie

Excellent film about whistleblowing. Russell should have won this year.
Al Pacino makes this movie come alive. Nice twist at the end.
Riveting. Tense. Best part: Bruce McGill's turn as a courtroom attorney made the hair on my arms stand up.
agreed - first ten minutes is misleading. but the rest-amazing. well-played. kept my interest.
Outstanding acting all around.
Wanted to re-watch to see if my memory of it held up - and it did. Pacino and Crowe may both have won Oscars for other films, but they earned them in this one.
The first 10 minutes is to show that Al Pacino is a kind of TV producer who puts his life on the line, goes wherever it takes and deliver. Powerful, convincing performances by Pacino, Crowe and Plummer -truly professional actors. Also, Bruce McGill's performance, though a small role, as a trial lawyer was outstanding. He will eat you alive!
An excellent film about a whistle blower and the involvement of the 60-minutes TV program to expose the misconduct of several major and powerful tobacco companies in the US a few decades back. Excellent acting by all lead actors, and a tight and gripping plot.
