The Infiltrator

(2016)

The true story of one man against the biggest drug cartel in history.

Bryan Cranston leads this true-story crime drama as a US Customs official who discovers a money laundering scheme connected to Pablo Escobar. From the director of The Lincoln Lawyer, co-starring John Leguizamo (American Ultra), Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) and Benjamin Bratt (TV's Law & Order).... More

Federal agent Robert Mazer (Cranston) goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent Emir Abreu (John Leguizamo) and a rookie posing as his fiancé Kathy Ertz (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant Roberto Alcaino (Benjamin Bratt).

Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world.Hide

  • Bryan Cranston gets a film role worthy of his ability to break bad in a tensely exciting true-life drama of undercover drug agents. Full Review

  • Cranston turns every moment of duplicity, which is to say nearly every scene of The Infiltrator, into an emotionally textured high-wire act. Full Review

  • Cranston... continues his rewarding post-"Breaking Bad'' big-screen career with another juicy real-life role in the highly entertaining "The Infiltrator." Full Review

  • It's Cranston's most accomplished and subtly layered film performance to date. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review

  • Composer Chris Hajian breaks out the percolating Jan Hammer synthesizers, and the '80s decadence wafts offscreen like a stink. Full Review
