The Informer (Netflix disc):

An ex-convict working undercover intentionally gets himself incarcerated again in order to infiltrate the mob at a maximum security prison.

Solid cast, great acting. The big names (Rosamund Pike and Clive Owen) actually take a back seat overall, compared to Common (rapper/actor) and Joel Kinnaman (probably best known as playing Rick Flag in Suicide Squad). The plot does well, inserting twists and turns at the right times, without it being over the top. There’s a lot of action, without there being any action, if that makes sense. You will definitely find yourself figuring out the long game at times, and that’s an asset to this movie. Very much worth the 2 hours viewing time.
