Crim­i­nal

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

The setup of this high-con­cept, low­brow thriller – a death-row con­vict has the mem­o­ries of a dead CIA agent up­loaded to his brain in a bid to thwart a ter­ror­ist plot – could hardly be more lu­di­crous, yet a growl­ing, griz­zled Kevin Cost­ner some­how keeps it on track. Nat­u­rally, the oper­a­tion to trans­fer the DNA of Ryan Reynolds’ spy into the semi-va­cant brain of Cost­ner’s un­feel­ing so­ciopath doesn’t go en­tirely to plan, and soon there are re­lent­less CIA agents and re­morse­less bad­dies go­ing into bul­let-strewn ac­tion.
