Ever since 2008, Bryan Cranston has been an acting force to be reckoned with. He’s been in the business a long time, but it wasn’t until AMC’s Breaking Bad hit TV screens and everyone became obsessed with it that people realised just how damn great he is. The sheer intensity he can bring into a role is matched by only few on television. In films, he’s now starting to take more lead roles than he was before, bagging an Oscar nomination for Trumbo. Now, he’s taking the lead in new crime drama The Infiltrator.
A U.S. Customs official uncovers a money laundering scheme involving Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar.
Joining him in this film is John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger and Joe Gilgun, so there’s definitely no issue with the cast. There is an issue however with the fact that it looks like every single cartel movie ever made. It’s a very hard topic to be original about these days, but this film just doesn’t look interesting at all. It may well be a good film, but from this trailer, The Infiltrator looks like absolutely nothing new.
