Storyline Heading

.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Crime Drama - While Kevin Costner plays the hero in this action thriller with science fiction elements, his role is a lot rougher than most of his roles. other known faces in the cast such as Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, and especially Ryan Reynolds only have fairly small supporting roles. Constant violence and language make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor "Criminal” is the kind of dunderheaded enterprise that leaves viewers reeling from the idiocies they have just endured, wondering how something like that could possibly get made in the first place. ...an unusually strong cast for a film that might have otherwise gone the VOD route...

NY Post Full Review
Below Average The main character in "Criminal” is afflicted with "frontal lobe syndrome,” which impairs higher brain functions like judgment, attention span and motivation. You could make the same diagnosis of this very silly movie: Kevin Costner, bad man. Then, Kevin Costner, good man! Brain happy.
