Movie Review by Martin
June 2nd, 2010

Sometimes you sit through lots of rubbish movies and eventually watch 2 reasonably great ones in a row. That is true tonight. I watched the rightfully high-praised "Up in the air" first, and now the lesser known, but just as good "The Informant!" Both movies were great for pretty much the same reasons.

"The Informant!" is about just that - an Informant. A Well-meaning guy who decides to land his criminal bosses in it for their wrong-doings, only to end up as a worse off bad guy himself.

It takes a while to get going, but when it does "The Informant!" is tragically funny, as Matt Damon (brilliantly playing against type) thinks he's acting like some sort of 007, only to forget he himself is involved in some of his works dodgy past, and have to constantly lie to try and get himself out of it.

You won't be constantly rolling about with laughter at this, but Damon is playing such an idiot here, you should chuckle at some moments in what is a complicated and intriguing flick. If you don't laugh at the leads stupidity, you will at some off the 70's style random cheesiness of the whole thing. Ace!
