Trivia

Sound stages at Pinewood Studios were used for Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds)'s basement, scenes inside a U-boat, and one of production designer Jon Henson's favorite sets of all: Jerico Stewart's prison cell. "It was hard to make the prison cell work, as Jerico had to be chained to the ceiling with a neck brace," said Henson. "Kevin wanted to be able to swing around the room on this chain, but prison cells tend to be cramped environments. We decided he would be housed in a special high-security unit. We built the ceilings very low, which helped with the feeling of claustrophobia. We added a small window in the center of the ceiling, which gave us an interesting light source, and we also based the colorations and ironwork on existing U.S. prison environments, that I think all of that combined, gives it some realism," said Henson.

Goofs

It is a physical impossibility to remotely launch a missile from a submarine.

It literally takes several different safe combinations, known to several different officers, to get the dozen or so physical keys that are then inserted and turned in a dozen different locations.

The sub also needs to go through specific evolutions to prepare for the launch of a missile, such as mandatory depth, speed, and trim limitations, not to mention the launch control must sequenced specific buttons and switches in specific ways at specific moments in a countdown process that takes AT LEAST 12 minutes to accomplish once power has been applied to the launch systems.

It would be IMPOSSIBLE to simple press a button on a remote computer and have a ship launched missile OF ANY KIND fire within seconds of a cold start. 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.

A Great Suspense Movie From Start To Finish.
17 April 2016 | by anopenmindedladySee all my reviews

Criminal is a 2016 American action thriller drama film directed by Ariel Vromen and written by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg. The film is about an ex-con who is implanted with a dead CIA agent's memories to finish an assignment. The film stars Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones in their second collaboration following the 1991 film JFK.

The memories and skills of deceased CIA agent Bill Pope are implanted into gruff convict, Jericho Stewart, in order to finish an incomplete mission.

Handsome Actor Ryan Reynolds plays the role of a CIA agent in London, he struggles to come back to to his home base. Two opponents are chasing him, the CIA and a team of terrorists. When the terrorists come closer to the CIA agent a series of breathtaking incidents will happen and the dramatic climax comes and will definitely please all the audience who love Great Action Movies.
