Holy Columbian marching powder, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more adrenaline-soaked, palpitation-inducing, stress-ride at the cinema.

Furman is obviously working in the long shadow of Martin Scorsese and the Breaking Bad team. Still, he's learned all the right lessons, especially when it comes to music.

Cranston's talent - and Furman's - go a little to waste.
September 13, 2016
Unlike its undercover hero, plays it very safe.
August 12, 2016
The best thing you can say about The Infiltrator is that Cranston and company are entirely persuasive in a film that doesn't make the best use of their stellar efforts.
August 11, 2016
There aren't enough adrenalin moments to supercharge a film that gets bogged down in exposition.
July 21, 2016
This is a summer movie for grownups, the kind that reminds you how gratifying it can be to sit down uninterrupted and watch actors work on the big screen.
July 14, 2016
On its own limited terms, The Infiltrator, like its hero, delivers the goods.
July 14, 2016
When director Brad Furman isn't focusing on huge closeups (which seems to be an awful lot of the time), he's focusing on all the wrong details.

It's distinguished by its craft and verve.
July 14, 2016
Composer Chris Hajian breaks out the percolating Jan Hammer synthesizers, and the '80s decadence wafts offscreen like a stink.
July 14, 2016
The drug of choice here is acting, and the highs in this hurtling, often violent thriller are doubly intense, since two of its stars play flamboyant double roles.
July 14, 2016
After a few initial missteps, Cranston's good-natured character can do no wrong, and The Infiltrator takes cues from his progression by creating the sense that his scheme is so perfectly realized it can just glide along to a perfect finish.
July 14, 2016
Brad Furman, the screenwriter's husband, wrings the maximum suspense out of all this.
July 14, 2016
[Cranston and Leguizamo] give ample reason for a trip to the multiplex, even if director Brad Furman ("The Lincoln Lawyer") can't maintain the film's gritty, immersive tone.
July 14, 2016
Though "The Infiltrator" breaks no new ground in its storytelling, it is nonetheless a riveting piece of work.
July 13, 2016
It sure is fun to watch Cranston at his best again, masterfully walking the tightrope between good and bad.
July 13, 2016
Furman keeps a tight rein on the film's palpable, sometimes suffocating tension. It's one of The Infiltrator's assets. Another is the ensemble cast.
July 13, 2016
Cranston changes his character from regular Joe to raging psycho - and you believe it utterly. He's extraordinary. Too bad the movie settles for being same old/same old.
July 13, 2016
For such an extraordinary story, The Infiltrator, from director Brad Furman, feels very by the books.
