There is something about Kevin Costner, you like him as an actor or you don’t.
While I read the taglines of this movie I was interested and I gave it a shot. Movie starts with Ryan Reynolds as a CIA agent in London looking for the Dutchman (Michael Pitt with an incredibily bad Dutch accent!) but he dies and his brain in transferred into the mind of criminal Kevin Costner. Immediately I thought of Face/Off from John Woo, but without switching faces. Despite a fun performance from Kevin Costner, Criminal is a half-baked action/thriller that fails to enter the science fiction part. So many familiair faces in this movie, but the end products fails to impress.
