Trivia

Goofs

When the first ballistic missile is fired from the submarine, the officer in charge refers to it as a "fish'" A fish is Navy slang for a torpedo. The torpedo runs in the water just like a fish, thus the name. No submariner would ever call a missile, such as the UGM-133 Trident II being fired here, by that name. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jericho Stewart: [narrating] They messed with my brain. Thought they knew what they'd get, but they were wrong. They don't know me. I do not know what happens next, but this I do know: you hurt me... I hurt you worse.

OK flick
17 July 2016 | by 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.
