The Informant!

Funny drama from the director of Ocean’s 11-12-13 franchise. There are rumours that Matt Damon increased his weight with several kilos for this movie, and this can easily be noticed in the movie. The guy looks older, and this was the intention too.

It is based on true events about Mark Whitacre, and this also is described in a non-fictions book. Mark became a whistle blower when he confessed that his employer, ADM, is involved in the illegal activity of price fixing. This is also known as Lysine price-fixing conspiracy. Mark cooperates with FBI in order to get fewer penalties. But FBI will later regret this cooperation since their informer tends to be “unstable”…

The movie is funny, but I didn’t found many hilarious moments. Therefore, it failed to be added up as a top favourite in my book.

Rating: 4 of 6
