Trivia

The one man who sees Jerico Stewart entirely as a tool to get what he desperately needs, is the London-based CIA chief, Quaker Wells, who is portrayed by Gary Oldman, who garnered an Academy Award Best Actor nomination for playing George Smiley in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011). See more »

Goofs

Jericho cuts himself on a piece of glass from the side window of a fairly modern taxicab. Side windows are made from tempered glass, and shatter into little pieces when broken. There wouldn't have been a large piece sticking out for him to cut himself on. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jericho Stewart: [narrating] They messed with my brain. Thought they knew what they'd get, but they were wrong. They don't know me. I do not know what happens next, but this I do know: you hurt me... I hurt you worse.

OK flick
17 July 2016 | by 851222See 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.
