Joel Kinnaman is a bit of a void when it comes to charisma as a leading man. Perhaps his stoic style of acting will suit the kind of character he’s playing here. Surrounding him is a fantastic cast in a story that can either be compelling and complex or straight-forward and unremarkable. Only time will tell where The Informer will land.
