Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds) is a CIA agent on a mission in London tracking down a shadowy hacker nicknamed "The Dutchman." When he gets mysteriously ambushed and killed, an experimental procedure is used to transfer his memories into dangerous ex-convict Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner). When he wakes up with the CIA agent's memories, his mission is to find The Dutchman and eliminate him before the hacker launches ICBM's and starts World War III. But complications soon arise and the mission turns personal.
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 »
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 »

"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.
