Critic Reviews of "The Informers"VarietySeptember 01, 2009
Rating less than zero on the sophistication scale, The Informers is thus a totally faithful adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' novel--and an accurate look at early '80s-era Los Angeles.Time OutJuly 17, 2009
We may not care about these cokeheads, but only rarely does Jordan fall into knee-jerk retribution.At the MoviesApril 27, 2009
This just felt like a bunch of people in 1980s L.A. with blonde streaks in their hair listening to Wang Chung.Entertainment WeeklyApril 24, 2009
It's by far the most slack, ho-hum movie ever made from Ellis' material.New York PostApril 24, 2009
The Informers is a movie so seamy it makes you want to take a bath afterward. Rarely has so much sin seemed so boring.East Bay ExpressAugust 18, 2011
Heaven protect us from any more Bret Easton Ellis versions of Tales of the Empty Lives of Los Angeles.Honolulu Star-AdvertiserJuly 05, 2011
Brad Renfro in his last movie role, playing a wannabe film actor who sprays out filthy perspiration like a collie emerging from a sewer. It's possible this role killed Renfro.Washington TimesAugust 30, 2009
Imagine American Psycho with less violence but more nudity, transplanted from New York to California and stripped of all self-awareness. That's The Informers.Movie MetropolisAugust 23, 2009
...a ninety-eight-minute snooze-fest.Times (UK)July 24, 2009
It has a good cast and a terrific 1980s soundtrack (Devo, Simple Minds), but it also has the superficiality of a TV soap. The Informers is not so bad that you can't sit back and enjoy it, but nor is it good enough to go and see.
