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 convict Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner). When he wakes up with the CIA agent's memories, his mission is to find The Dutchman and make the deal with him before the hacker launches ICBM's and starts World War III. But complications soon arise and the mission turns personal.
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 »
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.

Surpasses hopes of not being the same old action flick....
I had this film on my mind to watch it definitely as soon as it comes out when I watched the first trailer released last year & to be very Frank in this I should say that neither Ariel, Ryan nor Kevin disappoints in getting same old stuff on the screen. The basic thing that intrigued me was the concept and premise but as I write this review I should say that they just averaged across where the acting especially of Costner sir was worth praising. Others like gal, Gary, Tommy just stood as ever bringing nothing more new to their characters or actions. I should say that you should definitely give this one a look to let the judgement come from yourself.
