Trivia

One of the most fascinating aspects of playing Jerico Stewart was figuring out his tricky relationship with Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds)'s widow, Jill Pope, played by Israeli actress Gal Gadot, who unexpectedly lures Jerico and introduces him to feelings of love, loyalty, and regret, that he's never encountered. Kevin Costner found an unusual rapport with her, with both characters deeply unnerved by one another, yet drawn to each other. Costner commented: "Gal is an actress I was not aware of before this movie, and I had a great experience with her. Her character brings femininity to a movie that is hard and cold in parts. On day one, we were thrown into the really rough scene where my character starts to assault her. I walked onto the set with a shaved head and nasty four-inch scar and had to bind her with tape, but Gal was so prepared and so generous. I think at first she is scared and revolted by Jerico, but her curiosity gets the better of her, and they find a connection." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jericho Stewart: [narrating] 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.

OK flick
17 July 2016 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"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.
