Criminal Review

Excellent

Almost criminally entertaining, this preposterous thriller mixes buckets of humour and emotion into the violent, twisty action. And Kevin Costner gets his best role in years, a remarkably complex character who's unpredictable and thoroughly engaging. So even as the story grows increasingly ridiculous, the film remains both gripping and a lot of fun.

It's set in London, where hot CIA operative Bill (Ryan Reynolds) is on the trail of an evil anarchist (Jordi Molla) when he's captured, tortured and killed. To stop an imminent attack, the CIA chief Wells (Gary Oldman) needs to know what Bill was working on. So he calls in scientist Franks (Tommy Lee Jones), who has been experimenting with transferring memories from brain to brain in animals. For his first human trial, he copies Bill's dying memories into the only suitable brain available on such short notice: psycho killer Jericho (Kevin Costner), who's serving a death sentence in prison. And now Jericho is desperate to sort out the chaos in his head.

Director Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) keeps everything moving so briskly that there isn't time to stop and think about how silly the premise is. All of these characters act on their basest impulses, never thinking through anything before they charge into the next situation. Viewers who try to make sense of the plot, or of London's geography, will find their brains aching like Jericho's. So it's better to just hang on and enjoy the ride. The film's edgy, urgent tone adds the illusion of depth amid the mindlessly brutal violence, while the formidable cast adds weight to a variety of rather thinly drawn characters, from Oldman's bluster to Jones' wry wit. Only Costner gets some real depth to play with, and Jericho is constantly surprising, mixing a killer instinct with brainy invention and some properly dark emotions. His scenes with Gal Gadot (as Bill's wife) are unnervingly tense and moving.

Kevin Costner Hadn't Met Gal Gadot Before Assault Scene


Kevin Costner Gal Gadot

The 61-year-old actor stars alongside Gal in upcoming movie Criminal. The film tells the story of Kevin's ex-convict character who is implanted with the memories of a dead CIA agent in order to finish an assignment.

Wonder Woman actress Gal stars as the agent's wife Jill Pope, and the very first time she was acquainted with her co-star, they had to shoot one of the film's more violent scenes.

"I showed up with long hair and I go, ‘Hi I’m Kevin’ and the director goes, we aren’t doing that scene," Kevin said during an interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday night (11Apr16). "So I go away, come back and go, ‘Hi I’m Kevin, I’m going to assault you’. I’m going to start off by taping you and throwing a sock in your mouth and then I’m going to have my way with you…"

Gal Gadot: 'I Was Too Skinny Before Wonder Woman'


Gal Gadot

The Israeli actress, who was criticised by superhero fans for being flat-chested, accepts she was "too skinny" when she looked at pictures of herself from five years ago.

The 30-year-old beauty, who made her debut as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice last month (Mar16), will bring her character back to the big screen next year (17) in a stand-alone Wonder Woman movie and The Justice League Parts 1 & 2 .

"I’m actually shooting Wonder Woman now, so I need to keep up the look. I feel really strong. I look back at photos of me from five years ago and I think I was too skinny. It just wasn't cool at all," she tells US Weekly.

Gal Gadot: Serving In The Army Prepared Me For Batman V Superman

Gal Gadot says serving in the Israeli army helped her play Wonder Woman.

The 30-year-old actress donned the superhero's tiara and skirt for DC Comics blockbuster 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and she admits her combat training proved to be very useful when shooting her stunt scenes.

Gal - who spent two years in the military from the age 18 - said: ''(My movie training) reminded me a lot of my time during army training. Part of being Israeli is to go to the army. All my friends went, my parents went and my grandparents went.''

Gal Gadot Talks Female Empowerment In 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice'


Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot stars as Wonder Woman in her first live action embodiment since the 70s when she was portrayed by Lynda Carter. 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice' sees two uber-macho superheroes go head to head, but their rivalry is disrupted by the arrival of a much wiser peer in the form of centuries-old Diana Prince.

Gal Gadot as Wonder WomanGal Gadot plays Wonder Woman aka Diana Prince

We're hardly new to the idea of a strong female superhero in cinema. There's been at least ten in the 'X-Men' franchise, then you've got Gamora in 'Guardians of the Galaxy', Catwoman in 'Batman' and Black Widow in 'The Avengers', but there's still a lot more room for oestrogen in the comic-to-film world and its incredible that it's taken until now to re-boot the Amazonian princess Wonder Woman.

Ben Affleck Has Written Batman Film Script


Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Gal Gadot Amy Adams

The 43-year-old actor, who portrays the caped crusader for the first time in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is contracted to do at least two Justice League movies and his script is reportedly set to be considered for one of those films.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, WME-IMG co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell, whose agency represents Ben, reveal how many movies the two-time Oscar winner has currently signed up for when it comes to DC's Caped Crusader.

"He's contracted to do at least Justice League One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape," Patrick said, adding, "There's a script that he's written that is a really cool (Batman) idea, so that's out there as an option."

'Batman V Superman' May Have Smashed The Box Office, But It Hasn't Convinced Critics


Zack Snyder Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Gal Gadot

Probably the most highly anticipated film of the year, 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' predictably stormed the box office with $170.1 million domestic ticket sales and $424.1m global. That's easily superseding critically acclaimed hits like 'Zootopia' and '10 Cloverfield Lane', and yet it continues to be viciously attacked by critics.

Batman v SupermanIt's Batman VS. Superman VS. the critics

As it stands, 'Batman v Superman' starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill is at just 28% on Rotten Tomatoes, actually dropping from 29% in just a day. Both would-be fans and film reviewers were left feeling more than a little disappointed at the distinct lack of any humour, the controversial ending and a lot of over-the-top production. Our own critics, Rich Cline, explained that the main issue lay in the theatrics. 'The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous', he said.

Before 'Batman V Superman', Wonder Woman's Difficult Journey To The Big Screen


Gal Gadot Zack Snyder George Miller Joss Whedon Megan Gale

Both Batman and Superman have seen various incarnations on the big screen, but in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice they will be joined by a superhero whose film debut is long overdue, Wonder Woman. The story of Wonder Woman’s journey to the big screen could be a movie in itself, as until now writers, directors and studios have tried and failed to make the heroine leap from comic books to film.

Gal Gadot Wonder WomanGal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman’s live-action debut came in a 1974 TV movie starring Cathy Lee Crosby, but she wasn’t quite as comic book fans had expected. This Wonder Woman was blonde and had a very questionable costume, which featured some blue leggings and a red coat with blue and white starred sleeves.

Henry Cavill: 'Batman And Superman Have Different Views On Justice'


Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Gal Gadot

Batman and Superman are clashing on the big screen in Dawn of Justice, where Henry Cavill’s character faces off against the debuting Ben Affleck. The pair are arguably the two most recognisable superheroes of all time, but as Cavill explains, they’ve always been on opposite sides of the spectrum.

“When it comes down to Batman, Clark, Superman doesn't agree with the way he carries out justice,” Cavill said. “He understands that Batman is trying to do this justice thing, but Clark’s view is entirely different.”

Robin Wright Revealed In First Look At Cast Of Wonder Woman


Robin Wright Gal Gadot Connie Nielsen

The House of Cards actress' involvement in the film had been previously speculated. Her daughter Dylan Penn (Robin Wright and Sean Penn’s daughter) inadvertently confirmed the rumour at a pre-Golden Globes party in January (15).

When asked if she’d be attending the big show with her mother, she told The Hollywood Reporter: “No, she’s not going,” she replied. “She’s training to be a super hero for a movie.”

Robin, 49, known for her steely portrayal of First Lady, Claire Underwood, plays General Antiope in the film.
