Critic Reviews of "The Insider"New York ObserverApril 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 OutFebruary 09, 2006
The movie reveals Michael Mann's unparalleled ability to fashion taut suspense from unpromising material.Globe and MailApril 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/VultureJune 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 StoneMay 08, 2001
Mann turns a moral issue into riveting suspense.Washington PostMarch 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 MediaDecember 28, 2010
Fascinating whistleblower story for older teens.TheMovieReport.comNovember 29, 2009
A supremely suspenseful and riveting dramatic tour-de-force.Antagony & EcstasyJune 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 GuideOctober 29, 2008
A sobering examination of corruption, courage, cowardice, and the sometimes catastrophic costs of telling the truth.Dark HorizonsJanuary 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.eFilmCritic.comSeptember 24, 2007
It has a buzz of excitement and complexity -- the sense that we're seeing the actual back-room decisions that affect lives.
