The Infiltrator is a crime drama movie based on an autobiography of the same name by Robert Mazur.

Plot: The movie is set in the mid- 1980s. Robert Mazur ( Bryan Cranston) has gone undercover as Bob Musella, a money launderer, to bust Pablo Escobar's drug trafficking and all the banks linked to it. Mazur, his pretend fiance Kathy Ertz ( Diane Kruger) and streetwise Emir Abreu ( John Leguizamo) team up to befriend Escobar's lieutenant, Roberto Alcaino (Benjamin Bratt). What follows is a number of false identities to get closer to the top and win the drug war. But they have to tread very carefully because one false step means death. Will Bob Musella give in to the temptations of easy money, sex, and drugs or will he be Robert Mazur, the self-righteous federal agent? You'll have to watch to find out.

Analysis: Bryan Cranston's acting is amazing; you won't take your eyes off him, and you won't forget him even days after you've watched the movie. The camera shots are bad at places, though. The movie still manages to keep you hooked throughout, with certain emotional or really tense scenes.

Star performances: Bryan Cranston in the lead role is a great choice - his acting is intense and really hits the mark. All that time with "Breaking Bad" has really toned him well. Diane Kruger looks younger than her years and adds glamour to the movie. The rest of the supporting cast are competent and don't give the movie any negatives because of their acting. The director Brad Furman takes a little too literal approach to tiny details. The screenplay is by his mother, Ellen Brown-Furman. Chris Hajian did music for the movie, and it turns out to be quite a requisite. The cinematographer is Joshua Reis.

What's there?

1. The script stays very true to the actual event the movie is based on and thus gives the viewer a clear idea of the ongoings.

2. The acting skills of everybody onscreen are brilliant. A special mention goes out to Bryan Cranston, the jewel of the show.

What's not there?

1. Execution isn't without flaws; it gets quite confusing at times.

2. There are a million cliche scenes that don't work well at all and leave you bored.

3.The cinematography is only so-so, with most shots having a made-for-TV kind of feel.

Verdict: If you're looking for bloody action, this movie doesn't have much of it. If you're looking for good acting, a decent story, and an overall gripping movie, then go for this.
