‘The Infiltrator’

infiltratorA focus on the relationships built in a major undercover Florida cocaine bust lifts director Brad Furman’s (The Lincoln Lawyer, Runner Runner) true-story adaptation above average.

Anchored by an empathic Bryan Cranston (Trumbo, Argo), The Infiltrator is a character-driven narrative whilst boasting plenty of action. At 127 minutes, it fairly zips along – and whilst it’s hardly challenging, The Infiltrator is an enjoyable crime drama. It’s also the perfect companion piece to 2014’s Kill the Messenger which blew the whistle on the CIA importing cocaine from Colombia.
