The Informant review

Drug trafficking woes...

Based on the true story of drug trafficking in Gibraltar, featuring two charismatic leads, and written by A Prophet scribe Abdel Raouf Dafri, Julian Leclercq’s French thriller should be unmissable, rather than merely – and sometimes just nearly – competent.

Marc (Gilles Lellouche) is a broke bar owner who starts selling smuggling tip-offs to government spook Redjani (Tahar Rahim) but soon finds himself sailing into stormy waters.

Though there are exciting sequences, the roles are underwritten, the dubbing’s disastrous and the tension lessens even as the net tightens.
