The Insider Blu-Ray Review
 


Synopsis: Experience the celebrated film The Insider on Blu-ray for the first time with an all-new digital restoration. Nominated for 7 Academy Awards, including best picture, best director, and best actor, this gripping true-life drama features an astonishing cast, including Oscar-winners Al Pacino (best actor, 1992, Scent Of A Woman), Russell Crowe (best actor, 2000, Gladiator) and Christopher Plummer (best supporting actor, 2010, Beginners). Witness the incredible chain of events that pitted an ordinary man against the tobacco industry and dragged two people into the fight of their lives. When former tobacco executive Dr. Jeffrey Wigand agrees to blow the whistle on the alleged unethical practices within the industry, and forms an alliance with veteran 60 Minutes producer Lowell Bergman, he starts an all-out war that could cost both men their reputations.and much, much more. Relive every unbelievable twist and turn like never before on Blu-ray.

Review: I remember all the hype over this extremely oscar nominated film back around the turn of the millenium!  In fact, I was going to see it, because I love Russell Crowe, but I just never got around to it.  Now, the film is coming to blu-ray for the first time and I finally get the opportunity to check it out..and in high-def no less.  This film is a fantastic dramatic feature about a whislteblower in the tobacco industry..an industry that since this film came out has been exposed and exposed again in the mainstream, as smoking declines and regulations on public smoking have tightened.  The movie has an amazing cast and its very well acted.  I found it to be suspenseful and full of great plot.  Very enjoyable film indeed, and I recommend it to all.  The movie looks great in high-definition!

Interest Range: Drama
