Film review: ‘The Infiltrator’ ★★★

The Infiltrator does exactly what is says on the tin. This Bryan Cranston-led real life crime drama, telling of a lengthy undercover sting operation to ensnare Pablo Escobar’s mid-80s Florida drug operations, may not reach the blood-splattered heights of The Departed or Donnie Brasco but like director Brad Furman’s former project, The Lincoln Lawyer, the success of his latest rests at the more than capable feet of an actor in the form of his life.

The Infiltrator hits UK cinemas on 16th September – read the full CineVue review here.
