The Insider Movie Review Summary

Actors: Russell Crowe, Al Pacino

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Insider

Jeffrey Wigand has just been fired by the cigarette company. So what he decides to do is expose the truth on "60 Minutes." Soon, the company is sending death threats to him, which forces him to move. This then goes on to become the case of the century. CBS though, decides to censor Wigand's interview, which upsets the "60 Minutes" producer, Lowell Bergman. This film is really moving, and wonderfully written. Everyone is great, but the best performance comes from Christopher Plummer for his performance as Mike Wallace. This is a wonderful film for everyone.
