Trivia

Playing Special Agent Esteban Ruiza was Amaury Nolasco. Nolasco was gratified to have the rare chance to work with simultaneously with Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, and Tommy Lee Jones. "Working with these three Academy Award-winning and nominated actors was like going back to school," he mused. "All I did was watch and learn. Seeing their process, watching how they approached every scene and listening to their anecdotes in between takes was all priceless. Don't tell anyone, but I would have taken this role for free just to get the opportunity to work with these three giants." Most of all, Nolasco, whose character tracks Jerico Stewart through London, was moved by his story. "I found it intriguing the way Jerico gets another chance at life. This is a guy who was dealt bad cards. It was not a choice. Life was just unfair to him. But now he gets to see and live a different life. It may not be his, but it sure is better than the one he had," he concluded. "It is filled with emotions, feelings, and the ability to care and love. When he screams to Quaker Wells 'they matter to me' about Jill and Emma Pope, you see who he has become." See more »

Goofs

Gasoline is very unlikely to ignite when a lit cigarette is tossed into it. Gasoline vapors could ignite in this scenario, but as it is freshly poured on a cold day, the amount of vapors would be negligible. See more »

OK flick
17 July 2016 | by (Lithuania) – See 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.
