Did You Know?


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 »

Performance of a lifetime!
12 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

I must admit it's been ages since I saw a movie that gave me the goose bumps and this movie just gave me what I wanted. Kevin Costner, all hands down, standing ovation and hats off! What a performance??!!! Costner was just unbelievable from the beginning to the end. I don't think anyone could've pulled off this role better than him. The camera work, background music, dialogues etc.. are top notch! The movie is more of an action thriller that keeps you curious from the alpha to omega!

More like Face off, just that here it's not the face but the mind that's been swapped from a CIA operative to Costner. All I can say is watch this movie at any cost cos Costner delivered what no man can do to such perfection it's almost impossible to explain. 10/10 at any cost!!
