Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds) is a CIA agent on a mission in London tracking down a shadowy hacker nicknamed "The Dutchman." When he gets mysteriously ambushed and killed, an experimental procedure is used to transfer his memories into dangerous convict Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner). When he wakes up with the CIA agent's memories, his mission is to find The Dutchman and make the deal with him before the hacker launches ICBM's and starts World War III. But complications soon arise and the mission turns personal.

Trivia

The clean environment, where Dr. Franks performs surgery on Jerico Stewart in the abandoned warehouse, is a modular clean room, and was designed and built by UK cleanroom manufacturer Connect 2 Cleanrooms. It was supplied with wider soft wall panels than is usual, to improve vision for the cameras. See more »

Goofs

When Jerico slips the hook he fashions out of a piece of the car door trim through the metal grate separating the front and rear seats, the "hook" is only about 3/4' across.. When you next see the hook, after it's passed through the grate, the "hook" is now at almost a 90 degree angle. See more »

OK flick
17 July 2016 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"Criminal" (2016) is kinda "been there saw that" type of flick - nothing original, nothing super exciting, but as a one evening guilty pleasure it does it's job, at least partly.

The cast is superb, and everyone did their OK jobs for the material, except for Tommy Lee Jones - this is "you got to be kidding me" type of performance - he goes with one facial expression during whole flick, expression that says "what am i doing here? what is this thing?".

Overall, nice execution and OK story with some fun acting makes this flick work for one boring evening. There is even some descent music in it, the one in the van and the one at very end - closing song was great.
