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.

At 1:17, Jericho is being shown how to play a piano. Emma tells him to put up his hands on the keyboard, and he mimics her by using his right hand. The shot cuts to show her hand guiding his left hand to the keys, then back to show his right hand on the keys and his left hand back on his lap. 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.
