Movie Review: Criminal (NC16)
It's interesting that older actors are getting a new lease of life.
Kevin Costner is the latest to jump on the bandwagon, and he is surprisingly one good mean killing machine.
He plays Jericho, a nefarious career criminal who gets his brain implanted with the memories of Ryan Reynolds' recently-deceased CIA agent Bill.
The idea is for the CIA to use Jericho to stop an imminent cyber-terrorism plot that Bill was chasing before he got killed by the baddies.
With Bill in his head, the once emotionless Jericho starts to experience feelings, something he can't quite comprehend.
Criminal can get rather one-note, but Costner and the other stellar cast, including Reynolds, deliver fine performances that elevate the material.
