"The Informers" is a timely masterpiece about how the family unit is at a decline in this country. Those who didn't like it can go back to their fantasy worlds of reality TV and the Easter Bunny.

One of the two worst movies I have ever seen! pathetic, unredeemable, twisted, a-moral and, yes, sick! I left after half an hour. My husband tried and said that while he waited for a way to connect all of the above, it never happened. Do not waste your time.

Walked in and were the only people in the theater. Now I know why. Oh dear, poor acting, undeveloped characters, and a generally lifeless storyline. If I save one person from watching this incredible disaster of a film, I've done my job.

Not just one of the worse movies, it is the worse! Also terrible acting, don't waste your time and money.

A nihilistic, narcissistic, knuckleheaded move about nihilistic, narcissistic knuckleheads, The Informers might have been an interesting exercise in satire, if it only had a sense of humor. Which it doesn't. You'll need one, though, after forking over 10 bucks to see it. Full Review

Nearly every time Mr. Jordan, working from a script by Mr. Ellis and Nicholas Jarecki, tries for similar effects, he goes badly awry, so that you snicker when the movie is trying to be poignant and groan when it aims to make a joke. Full Review

Shocking is the fact that three highly regarded actors -- Kim Basinger, Mickey Rourke and Billy Bob Thornton -- chose to star in this dreadful film. Full Review

The Informers is nihilism for nihilism's sake; a bleak and borderline-unwatchable collage of misanthropes, self-absorbed a**holes, and pathetic weaklings as they struggle to move forward during the early 1980s in Los Angeles. Full Review
