The Man Inside

Based on the true-life story of German investigative journalist Gunter Wallraff (Jurgen Prochnow), who got hired incognito as a right-wing reporter for Germany's leading newspaper in order to uncover its corrupt practices, this is a rather lackluster thriller that loses plausibility the minute that the overblown editor-villain (Dieter Laser) makes his first appearance, cackling like the meanie in a Flash Gordon serial. It's a pity, because the subject is a vital one, but writer-director Bobby Roth is clearly out of his element. With Nathalie Baye and Peter Coyote, the latter clearly uncomfortable with his German accent.
