to to his home base. Two opponents are chasing him, the CIA and a team of terrorists. When the terrorists come closer to the CIA agent a series of breathtaking incidents will happen and the dramatic climax comes and will definitely please all the audience who love Great Action Movies.
This was a really good movie, I don't understand all the critic's pans. Yes, there is a sci-fi element, so what? Jericho is a man who suffered a brain injury as a child that took away the use of his frontal lobe. This left him with the animal instincts of survival with basically no other human emotional traits as well as leaving that portion of his brain as virtually a blank canvas. The movie was action-packed, there were no slow points, the acting was spot on, the photography was great, the characters well defined. Jericho is a human experiment that the government forced to happen. <more>
The results are what one might expect from government interference in such a situation. If the world every goes full on crazy, I want Jericho on my team! I would go to see this movie again with a friend and I will certainly buy the DVD when it comes out. Costner is such a well developed actor and does a great job with the part. Make no mistake, that Jericho dude is one bad...
I absolutely loved this movie. I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through, and I thought I could figure it all out, but I was never able to see the twists and turns ahead of time. The thing I like best about it is that the movie - despite all the action, and gory action at that - is really all about people. People and personalities and knowing good vs evil and wrong from right...and how a person can know wrong from right, and then cherish that knowledge once one sees it. If it was a book it would be a page turner.I was disappointed that few people were in the theater, and I can only <more>
speculate that most of the main actors are...what, too old to draw in the crowd? If so, that's sad, because this one is really worth seeing. Even buying a copy to keep.And Kevin Costner deserves an Oscar.
Great movie to see. Costner does a good job in his portrayal (by cfmmcquillan)
This was a very good movie I am so glad I went to see it in spite of the spoilers people have been saying about it. Kevin Costner did a great job of transitioning from a bad guy to a guy that was just learning to have emotions love the ending of the movie. You should go see this movie in spite of the critics. I don't want to give too much detail about the movie but I really enjoyed it. In the beginning he didn't do what everyone wanted him to do and I think that is what made the movie good because it wasn't straight up predictable. Some parts you may guess on but not totally. When <more>
the bad guys make progress you enjoy seeing g them get what's coming to them. Go see this movie. Great cast too.
From criminal to hero: A journey of redemption (by Yelitza-screenwriting-student)
Please watch this film!! Give it a go! I'm watching it a few times.1. The wonderful: Lots of suspense and thrill! What a journey of redemption! How entertaining and intriguing!! As Jericoh Kevin Costner progressively gets more involved with Pope's sentimental memories feelings of love and kindness , he also develops a sensitivity for humanity: he develops positive emotions. And of course we empathize with JEricoh when we learn the cause of his brain damage--his father throws him off the window of a running car...this marked him forever. I also love how Pope's wife Gadot <more>
connects with this "criminal," because he carries her deceased beloved husbands memories and feelings. Likewise, Pope's daughter bonds with Jericoh. And the emotional climax of the movie is my favorite part! It's a moment of truth and tears. Another thing I liked was the Russian hacker Michael Pitt that have taken control of nuclear missiles system--in the end, he sabotages the system and prevents the wicked Spaniard Molla, the real villain of the film to carry out destruction. The science-fiction portion of the story is such an mind-opener! Can people with no ability to distinguish between good and evil be saved? What if they are exposed to the neural pathways/memories of goodness, of kindness? What if they experience these positive emotions and can then make a choice? This is what Jericoh does. He doesn't automatically turns good, he makes the choice to turn good, because he discovers something he has never experience before, thanks to Pope's memories. One of my favorite lines in the movie is when he tells Gadot he couldn't ever harm her because Pope would never do so. After that moment, Gadot overcomes her fear. Pope's goodness has reflected on Jericoh, and Jericoh has accepted that. I also love Tommy Lee Jones as Dr. Frank! Just love him. AND THE ENDING? Fantastic! I wanted to stay in that moment forever! A shining Kevin Costner.2. The ugly and terrible: Seeing Kevin Costner commit such heinous acts of violence without a trace of emotion in his face is hard to watch. Of course his brain is impervious to emotion or the sense of good vs. evil. Hence that's why he becomes the perfect target for Dr. Frank's experiment. But it's Kevin Costner! Our sweetheart wonderful good-guy actor. Also, Pope Reynolds suffers a brutal death...that's hard to watch or hear .3. What I ponder about: Lots of layers, lots of elements going on. But the whole idea of this Spaniard anarchist having such level of power. He doesn't operate on a global scale or doesn't seem strong enough to have such impact.Overall, this is a film with a positive message. I walked out of the theater feeling good! Give it a try!
Imagine if Robert Ludlum wrote Total Recall. This would be the result.Kevin Costner, whom I really didn't like before this movie, does an absolutely wonderful job as the bad ass protagonist.Gary Oldman is for some reason overacting and plays the role as a theater role.Jordi Mollà is the antagonist, and like Oldman, he is over acting.But still, it's a rock and roll adventure like they used to make them. Solid suspense, good story. It reminded me of The Man from Berlin, even though they have nothing in common. But I remember how that move made me feel when I saw it in theaters many <more>
This movie really got my attention. I wasn't expecting much. Had saw the trailer and also saw the grades here and it all made me expect just a regular movie. The true is the movie story and actions worked pretty good and I just loved it. Was a pretty nice movie to watch and see time passing fast. I do recommend it. Kevin Costner did a great job on that movie, probably one of his best action movies from the last years. They did some aggressive scenes witch easily made my day. They did mixed all this free violence with a impressive love story and it actually worked nice. The main character <more>
and his craziness made me get different ideas from the begin until the end. It's funny how you just hate this guy and then how you became to change your mind during the movie.
I believe so many opinions have polluted the idea of what a film is or should be and always aim to be so much more than just some person thinking they can tell a story people will enjoy.. this I believe is/was intending to be nothing more than a popcorn entertaining flick. This was a great rainy day mid-afternoon Sunday matinée. Sci-fi adventure action - disregarding the plot and holes all over the place - it was a fun ride. I am among those that like Costner and he appears to have had fun making and playing this new character. I am 100% certain once was enough - but it was $5.75 that I was <more>
not disappointed to exchange for 1hr 30 min film. bonus - the young Emma was just an adorable character. I will tell folks - I enjoyed it.
Oscar winning film director Kevin Costner hasn't made a good action movie like "Criminal" since he co-starred with Kurt Russell in the eccentric Las Vegas-heist caper "3000 Miles to Graceland" where robbers were Elvis impersonators. "Criminal" washed the sour taste of dreadful epics like "Three Days to Kill" and "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" out of my mouth. Aside from his supporting roles in good movies like "Man of Steel" and his cameo in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," most of Costner's actioneers have been <more>
forgettable. Basically, he hasn't made a good movie in 16 years, at least nothing that matches his better films, including "Message in a Bottle," "13 Days," "Waterworld," "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," "No Way Out," "The Untouchables," "Silverado," and "JFK." Yes, I enjoyed "Waterworld." In "Criminal," Costner gets a chance to shine with a performance that ranges back and forth from one end of the spectrum to the other end. Mind you, "Criminal" isn't going to clinch Costner an Oscar. Nevertheless, this contrived but entertaining memory swap movie is provocative enough to watch more than once. The London settings add a touch of exoticism, and the cast boasts Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Oldman, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds. Clearly, Ryan Reynolds must have made this movie before "Deadpool" smashed global box office records. If you're a Reynolds fan, you're going to be enormously disappointed with his peripheral role. Indeed, had "Deadpool" not become the sensational hit that it did, Reynolds might have been reduced to minimal roles like "Criminal." Interestingly enough, Reynolds starred in a movie about a year ago with Ben Kingsley where he played the guy who acquired the memories from another man. "Selfless" was a terrific movie. Ironically, the roles are reversed for Reynolds in "Criminal." London-based CIA agent Bill Pope Ryan Reynolds of "The Proposal" has stashed a cunning computer hacker, Jan Stroop, alias 'The Dutchman' Michael Pitt of "Seven Psychopaths" , in a safe place until he can conduct the million dollar deal that the Agency has promised Stroop. 'The Dutchman,' it seems, has pulled a "War Games" and has hacked through the Pentagon's firewalls so he can launch weapons of mass destruction whenever and wherever he pleases. The Agency is not alone in their pursuit of Stroop. Insane anarchist Xavier Heimdahl Jordi Mollà of "Colombiana" has been tracking Pope so he can find 'The Dutchman.' Heimdahl's right-hand man, actually an indestructible, trigger-happy dame, Else Mueller Antje Traue of "Seventh Son" , has been maintaining surveillance on Pope. She nabs Pope with Xavier's henchmen, and Xavier personally tortures Pope in the worst way possible to learn the whereabouts of 'The Dutchman.' Although he shoves a taser into Pope's mouth and singes him to death, Xavier cannot get a useful word out of him. The CIA careens onto the scene at the last moment, but Pope is kaput. What began as an Edward Snowden type thriller takes a crazy swerve into science fiction as the CIA bring in a neurosurgeon, Dr. Franks Tommy Lee Jones , who has been tinkering with the concept of transferring the memories from one man to another person. All this reminded me of the recent predicament that FBI found themselves in with a terrorist's iPhone. Anyway, with clinical trials years away, Franks manages to appropriate Pope's memories and transfer them intact into another man's mind. "Criminal" shifts gears as swiftly and abruptly and goes from probable to improbable. The CIA hopes that this new guy will be able to lead them to whenever Pope has hidden Stroop before Stroop either gives himself up to the Russians or Xavier's henchman can find him. Meantime, Stroop aims to prove to the world that he can really hack U.S. military technology with an example of his derring do.If the CIA and Western Civilization weren't in dire straits enough, the man selected by Dr. Franks for the memory transfer turns out to be a psycho afflicted with a condition known as "frontal lobe syndrome." Meaning, prison inmate Jerico Stewart Kevin Costner of "Wyatt Earp" has no feelings one way or another and does whatever he feels when the occasion arises. Basically, he is a loose cannon without a qualm. The experiment succeeds and Jerico suffers intervals when he speaks French that he has never spoken and has access to Pope's memories. He enters the correct security codes to Pope's London apartment and questions Pope's suspicious wife Jill Gal Gadot of "Batman v Superman" about a case containing millions of dollars. Originally, Pope had planned to use this money to pay off The Dutchman, but everything fell through after he died. Initially, Jerico wants the loot for himself. As the plot of this 113-minute, R-rated epic thickens, he decides to do the right thing. Incredibly, he wants to pick up where Bill Pope left off, and Pope's adorable daughter Emma newcomer Lara Decaro takes a shine to Jerico.The pair who penned the Sean Connery & Nicholas Cage thriller "The Rock" were the minds behind "Criminal." Scenarists Douglas Cook and David Weisberg also collaborated on the Tommy Lee Jones & Ashley Judd thriller "Double Jeopardy" as well as the Patricia Arquette crime comedy "Holy Matrimony." "Criminal" shares similarities with "The Rock." First, when we are introduced to Jerico, he is locked up in maximum security and sports shoulder-length hair, just as Connery did in "The Rock." Against everybody's objections, Jerico is recruited for this radical experiment. Like the Connery hero in "The Rock," Jerico is a Houdini of an escape artist, but he doesn't give a crap about anybody but himself. Second, the man-in-the-middle of "Criminal" is as amoral as Ed Harris was in "The Rock." The Harris character threatened to launch missiles, and 'The Dutchman' is prepared to wield the Pentagon's doomsday arsenal against it. Essentially, the similarities end here. Of course, "Criminal" is incredibly far-fetched, especially its happily ever after finale, but "Iceman" director Ariel Vromen never lets the pace slacken and stages several exciting action scenes.
