  • Critic Reviews
    "[This] wild ride of a movie takes surreal comic aim at the debased values of our society. The laughs sting like hell."
    Rolling Stone

    4 stars out of 4 -- "THE INFORMANT! is fascinating in the way it reveals two levels of events, not always visible to each other or to the audience..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Set in the early '90s, Soderbergh suffuses it all with a Marvin Hamlisch score, which lends a certain nostalgic feel....[Damon] carries the film with considerable aplomb..."
    Box Office

    "The goofy tone and a cast sprinkled with comedy ringers hint that the film is headed down the rabbit hole well before Soderbergh stops playing it straight." -- Grade: A-
    A.V. Club

    "[A] smart, cynical movie....Anger fuels THE INFORMANT!, giving it its pulse and reason for being."
    New York Times

    The eccentricity, experimentation and sheer chops that have come to define Soderberghs best work all come to bear on THE INFORMANT!, a smart, funny, off-handedly efficient corporate espionage thriller.
    Washington Post

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Steven Soderbergh's in his super-slick mode here....[Damon delivers] one of the year's stand-out performances."

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Damon is superb as a demonically smart guy who comes across as rather dim....Undeniably compelling."
    USA Today

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- There is devilish fun in this look into 1990s white-collar crime....This is Damon like youve never seen him, and he goes for broke.
    Rolling Stone

    [A] groovy-looking, chuckle-baiting, fact-based movie from protean director Stephen Soderberg....Scott Bakula makes an appealing FBI agent.
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Director Steven Soderbergh crafts a complex, clever, and hilarious movie out of annual report source material."
