Criminal Movie Review 

​CIA agent Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds) dies while traveling to a secret location to meet a hacker who can launch missiles at will. Desperate to find his whereabouts, officials turn to an experimental neurosurgeon who can transfer memories from one brain to another. The guinea pig for the procedure is Jerico Stewart (Kevin Costner), a violent and dangerous death-row inmate. Now gifted with Pope’s skills and knowledge, Stewart must race against time to stop a sinister international conspiracy.
I did not like this movie very much. Well, the story itself is pretty intriguing and well written but it just felt like something was missing from each actors’ performance. Ryan Reynolds character doesn’t have a lot of screen time and dies way too early. Kevin Costner attempts to portray a bad ass psychopathic criminal but… the role doesn’t really suit him.
For me, the best performance comes from Gal Gadot who portrays Jill Pope, Bill Pope’s wife. Gadot delivers a surprisingly believable emotional performance.
I also found most of the action in this movie to be sparse and anticlimactic. The ending is the best part of the whole movie. Mostly because it wraps up everything in a nice little package!
I’d only recommend watching this movie if you’re really bored or really drunk. Or both.
On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give Criminal 6 tamales! 😎
