The Infiltrator introduces a dizzying ensemble of characters into its overstretched duration to weave a tale we already know too well.
October 18, 2017
The film begins in 1986 and is based on a true story, and you have to wish that it had either been told earlier or, if it is to be told now, told with a lot more style.

The Infiltrator is what I like to call a decent Saturday laundry film, something that you can put on, walk away from it and let it run on it's own for about 10 minutes, return to it and not be lost at all.

A film that's worthy of our time, but isn't one that will offer us anything special, not even the Cranston's good performance. [Full review in Spanish]

It's an over-familiar story and lacks tension.
October 31, 2016
Even though the characters are very charismatic, the film lacks the depth it deserves. [Full review in Spanish]

A decent, well acted film with some beautiful shots. Too bad is not a well made story. [Full review in Spanish]

The set-up couldn't be better primed for tension, but director Brad Furman doesn't supply as much clammy suspense as you might hope.
September 15, 2016
There's a lot of material to get through and pacing becomes a real problem, the story flashing forward one minute and then becoming ponderous and meandering the next.
September 15, 2016
Cranston's talent - and Furman's - go a little to waste.
September 13, 2016
Unlike its undercover hero, plays it very safe.
August 19, 2016
Despite some crackerjack work from Cranston, this story of agent Robert Mazur's infiltration of the Colombian drug cartels often feels rushed and perfunctory.
August 12, 2016
The film seems to have forgotten, however, that it's still a movie, not a documentary - a detrimental misfire that cancels out its own charms.
August 12, 2016
It strives to deliver the painful truths of Sicario, but with none of that film's vicious elegance.
August 12, 2016
...the film grows more and more tedious as it slowly progresses...
August 11, 2016
There aren't enough adrenalin moments to supercharge a film that gets bogged down in exposition.
August 10, 2016
Feeling long at slightly over two hours, The Infiltrator is a patchwork of elements that tantalize us without satisfying.
July 20, 2016
As an undercover crime thriller, Brad Furman's The Infiltrator only barely works. If anything, it makes a life of crime look gloriously entertaining, aside from the occasional brutal murder that happens in your presence.
July 20, 2016
... the courageous true story behind The Infiltrator deserves much more than the coat of beige paint it's smothered in.
July 15, 2016
Good, solid acting can't overcome a fuzzy script and poor editing.
