The Informer

A film about crooked cops and mobsters

The kind of generic-sounding thriller that came out every other week in the ’90s, The Informer feels like more of a novelty at a time when so many crime stories find a home on the small screen.

Its world of dodgy FBI officers, dedicated NYPD cops and vicious Polish mobsters might have occupied a whole season of The Wire – and its tense, well-mounted early scenes don’t make a mockery of the lofty comparison, even if its intricate plotting eventually dissolves in a daft final act.
But The Informer is a film that favours brawn over brains, punching its way through any plot predicaments.
