On the surface, Criminal sure looks like another lame attempt at re-branding a former superstar (Kevin Costner, in this case) as an action hero. The Liam Neeson route, if you will. But this trailer, which shows off an incredibly impressive cast, might have a little more to bring to the table than post-Taken Neeson junk.
Here’s the trailer:
The quick synopsis of Criminal reads: “The memories & skills of a deceased CIA agent are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous convict.”
The cast is tremendous, no matter what the final priciest may be. Gary Oldman, Ryan Reynolds, and Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot! Tommy Lee Jones is along for the ride, as is Michael Pitt and apparently 80s villain stalwart Robert Davi is somewhere in there.
Criminal will be released April 15 this year. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
