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.
During the medical operation sequence, it is not actually Ryan Reynolds, but a doll/dummy made of him out of prosthetic special effects. It would have been more expensive to contract Reynolds for two days work (which is how long it took to shoot the sequence), and also tiresome for him to sit in an operating dentist-like chair.

When the agent is thrown through the windshield during the car accident, he is shown in the overhead shot to be thrown about twenty feet in front of the car, out of the light of the headlights. In the next shot, shown from ground level, he is only about three feet in front of the car, and well illuminated by the headlights. 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.

Great movie to see. Costner does a good job in his portrayal
This was a very good movie I am so glad I went to see it in spite of the spoilers people have been saying about it. Kevin Costner did a great job of transitioning from a bad guy to a guy that was just learning to have emotions love the ending of the movie. You should go see this movie in spite of the critics. I don't want to give too much detail about the movie but I really enjoyed it. In the beginning he didn't do what everyone wanted him to do and I think that is what made the movie good because it wasn't straight up predictable. Some parts you may guess on but not totally. When the bad guys make progress you enjoy seeing g them get what's coming to them. Go see this movie. Great cast too.
