The Infiltrator (Brad Furman – 2016) D

The synopsis for this sounds very good, a fact-based story about a US Customs official who brought down a huge Escobar-connected Colombian drug ring in the US by going deep undercover. The execution unfortunately is not so good. It is messy and a bit confusing. It really fails at making us care for the supposed connection our undercover agent forged with his drug trafficking buddies. We care even less about the paper thin characters. The direction is really shaky and it shows even in the performance of these, otherwise fine, actors like Bryan Cranston.
