Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Informer has a good central idea but kinda looses it as the film goes on, very much failing to become the sum of its very impressive parts – not least a cast that includes Ana de Armas, Rosamund Pike, Joel Kinnaman & Clive Owen. It’s not bad – the film is tense, smart, well made and violent when it needs to be, but overall it throws in so many story turns that by the end you’re not quite sure what the film was trying to achieve. So for sure it passes the time well but I get the feeling theirs a far better film to be made here.
