October 2, 2019
Well told, nicely paced, and beautifully acted, The Infiltrator, left me craving more at the end.
July 17, 2019
Outside of the dense character work and exemplary performances from even the bit players, The Infiltrator is lackluster in every other stylistic aspect.
March 13, 2019
Unrelentingly tense, it lets the audience blow off steam with well-timed humour. It certainly gets the heart pumping, but there's nothing much for the brain to do after you've left the cinema.
January 15, 2019
A crime thriller that has plenty of familiar elements in play but also has an ace-in-the-hole in the form of a dynamic lead performance from Bryan Cranston.
August 30, 2018
Picture this as a "Goodfellas" with Bryan Cranston.

[Cranston is] a joy to watch as he glides from Colombia to Miami to London, swirling whiskey in a crystal glass while flying on a private jet or smashing cake into the face of a waiter for bringing his wife the wrong order.
August 22, 2018
"The Infiltrator" is a semi-entertaining drug cartel film that allows for a two hour escape into its world of violence and high-stakes suspense.
August 22, 2018
I generally despise films that end in a wedding -- too lazy a finish for dippy rom coms. But this wedding's pathos and suspense are unlike anything we've seen since The Godfather. The Infiltrator is a cinematic offer you can't refuse.

Bryan Cranston just has 'it'. This now iconic character actor commands attention.
March 30, 2018
The daring Brad Furman is still looking for his style among Heisenberg and Narcos. [Full review in Spanish]
November 5, 2017
Although the ensemble and energy of The Infiltrator are good, the film as a whole comes up a little short.
October 16, 2017
The Infiltrator is entertaining enough, and makes for solid summer counter-programming.
August 29, 2017
This is an Oscar worthy performance beautifully supported by numerous good actors; for example, he's joined by John Leguizamo as the explosive and unpredictable Emir.
February 22, 2017
The Infiltrator just manages to stand out amongst modern films. Bolstered by a strong cast and an engaging, based on true events story, it is a surprisingly enjoyable experience.
December 28, 2016
Cranston shines in a fact-based yarn that treads well-worn ground with enough panache to excuse the dj vu.
December 28, 2016
[Bryan Cranston is] the most watchable, dangerous, frangible thing in The Infiltrator, a B-standard crime thriller based on the exploits of undercover "narc" Robert Mazur.
December 28, 2016
Despite the viewer knowing (largely) where the film is headed, The Lincoln Lawyer director Brad Furman squeezes plenty of white-knuckle tension from the details.
December 20, 2016
A suspense film in which the violence is blunt and has a suitable distribution of the cast. [Full review in Spanish]
December 20, 2016
A film that has a protagonist above any adjective, with the perfect fit between the facial gesture and voice modulation without fuss. [Full review in Spanish]
December 19, 2016
'The Infiltrator' manages to entertain in its two long hours of duration, while exposing things that we have already seen thousands of times. [Full review in Spanish]
