Movie Review: The Infiltrator


U.S. Customs agent Robert “Bob” Mazur (Bryan Cranston) goes undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel by posing as a business man out to launder money. He is joined by a fellow agent (Diane Kruger) who acts as his fiancé to make the situation credible. The two get deeply involved in the cartel and gain their trust. Everyone is invited to their wedding.

This is based on a true story that took place in 1985. Watching the movie, I cannot imagine that an agent would take such enormous risks, where the slightest mistake could cost him his life, just to bust a bunch of criminals.

Bryan Cranston, whom we all got to know and love as Walter White in Breaking Bad, does an excellent job acting as Bob Mazur.

Rating - Two Stars
