Pete Koslow (Joel Kinnaman) is a former special operations soldier working as an informant for the FBI to help dismantle the Polish mafia's drug trade in New York. But when the FBI's operation goes wrong, resulting in the death of an undercover NYPD cop, Pete is coerced into returning to Bale Hill, the prison he previously served time in for manslaughter, to take down the cartel from the inside.
This is a taut, propulsive thriller about an FBI informer who has infiltrated a Polish mafia gang in New York. He is forced to go back to prison to carry out orders of the mafia boss. What follows is the informer, played very well by Joel Kinnaman, desperately trying to stay alive. There is strong violence and betrayal. Rosamund Pike plays a conflicted FBI agent. It is all done extremely well. Recommended.
