Evocative of Face/Off – well, save for any facial removal – the action-packed Criminal goes for more of a brain swap scenario. Actually it’s more reminiscent of 2015’s Self/less, especially considering the fact that it shares Ryan Reynolds as the star. Criminal is more crime flick than sci-fi suspense thriller though, whereby CIA bod Bill Pope (Reynolds) carks it before being able to reveal where’s he’s hidden an important witness. No problem though, they’ll just pop his synapses into the bonce of dodgy type Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner), and have him lead them to their quarry. A dodgy type is always a dodgy type, however. Jericho escapes custody and so begins a massive London-based manhunt.
