What is wrong with us as humans that sex trafficking even exists? Have we lost our way this badly? YES

This movie puts a visual like no other to the corruption, cover-ups, money, and sickness that is prevalent around us. While this movie is based on Bosnia, it is happening on American soil, too.

Through education like this will be the only way we lead ourselves out of this sickening abyss that is destroying massive numbers of lives and putting parents on constant guard for fear of having their children abducted and sold into the sex trade.

Among the sadness of the contents of the movie is the clear danger the whistleblower in any situation can face. It's very ugly! Corruption does not want to be stopped at any level.

Watch this movie for education only because there is no enjoyment to be found.

Heartbreaking and frustrating movie to watch. If you're looking for a happy ending then don't watch this movie.

I had to get this from KCL since the copies from SPL are missing. Didn't know how to rate this really. Stated at the beginning the storyline is based on factual events. I found it so disturbing that supposed 'peacekeepers' are involved in these activities, yet I do not doubt it at all. What we do to one another is inhumane & often in the disagreements of religion.

It was a real eye-opener to see how corrupt world renowned organizations are heavily involved in corruption yet deny and accept these practices because they were profiting from it. It took a brave soul to shake up that complacency and spare those young female victims from exploitation. Sadly it still goes on rampantly. Did it not occur to these men that these women were someone's sister, daughter or mother?

If you are looking for a feel good movie, this isn’t it. You will feel sick and disturbed after watching this excellent movie on sex trafficking. Rachel Weisz does an excellent job in this movie. Well worth the watch.

NOT A MOVIE FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!

Whistleblower is an extremely disturbing movie in that it based on reality. Girls (and guys too) and smuggled into various countries to pleasure pigs as seen in this movie, and so many turn a blind eye to it. This movie sickened me and messed me up in a good way.

This movie is rated R for good reason. Cuss words are used frequently, contains graphic pictures of sexual abuse, one sex scene in shadows, and the raping of a girl with a pipe. I may be forgetting somethings, but that's what I can remember.

Overall, this movie will make you uncomfortable, and I hope that you act on that and get in touch with an organization that helps free people from this type of slavery.
