Review

Our Score
This tense, thought-provoking thriller follows an FBI agent as he infiltrates a gang of white supremacists. Played by Daniel Radcliffe, the agent is introduced as a bookish, bespectacled outsider who is casually disrespected by his co-workers. In spite of this, a senior colleague (Toni Collette) believes that he has the skills to succeed as an undercover operative, so she recruits him to penetrate a "white power" organisation. Indeed, after he gets close to a group of thuggish skinheads, he earns the trust of the organisation's key players. First-time director Daniel Ragussis moves the plot forward from there in a way that will feel familiar if you've seen your share of undercover movies. Happily, though, the film has a sense of authenticity (the story is credited to a former FBI agent), and Radcliffe is convincing in the lead. There is very little action, but Imperium has some intense sequences and offers more complexity than you might imagine.

Summary

An undercover FBI agent infiltrates a white supremacist movement to prevent their planned terrorist attack. Crime thriller, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Toni Collette.
