Trivia

During filming in Ireland, the working title "Johnny Loves Suzie" was used so as not to attract the attention of any terrorist groups. However, it hardly could obscure the fact that armored vehicles and armed police and soldiers were featured in the film. See more »

is informing the right thing to do?
6 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie is by far the best of its kind. It is the most accurate description of the troubles in Northern Ireland i have seen. Unlike "Michael Collins" and other such movie's, The Informant did not idolise the I.R.A yet showed them for their true selves. Criminals, terrorists... But the movie didn't only focus on violence. It focus'd on a family, trying to get away from it all, trying to turn over a new leaf and start over. but to do so, the man of the family must "Inform" the R.U.C of names of the I.R.A members. In doing so he brings trouble on his family. Shame to his name, being a former I.R.A member, the lead of this movie really played his character to full potential.

I would have to rate this movie 9 out of 10.
