She's like, 'Yay, s**t!’” But I'll take that any day over like, when we go to the park and we take off our socks, for some reason she doesn't have her 'sh' for 'socks,' she has a 'c' for ‘socks.”

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.

Ben Affleck, Ryan Reynolds: The Actors Who Went From Bad To Good Superhero Movies


Ben Affleck Ryan Reynolds Nicolas Cage Chris Evans

When Ben Affleck was announced as taking the role of Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, many comic book fans rolled their eyes. It wasn’t necessarily because they disliked Affleck, it was more because there was still a bad taste in their mouths from 2003’s Daredevil. But as Ryan Reynolds proved earlier this year, redemption in the world of superhero movies is entirely possible and these actors have certainly repented for their past comic book sins.

MTV Movie Awards: What Will Be Named Best Kiss And Best Fight Of The Year?


Mtv Movie Awards Leonardo Dicaprio Ryan Reynolds

The MTV Movie Award nominees are upon us and with it a few more stars that haven't yet been recognised for their 2015 efforts at the major film events so far. Of course, we went straight to the Best Fight and Best Kiss list - and we weren't disappointed.

Leonardo DiCaprioLeonardo Dicaprio can take on any bear

Of course, the number one contender for Best Fight is Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, who's character Hugh Glass fought a bear in 'The Revenant'; a jaw-dropping scene for anyone who got chance to see it at theaters. But then you've got Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa and Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky in 'Mad Max: Fury Road' which was pretty intense, with the former putting up a damn good fight against the ultimately glorious latter. More girl on guy action came with 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' - Rey (Daisy Ridley) vs. Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) - which actually leads the list with 10 nominations.

Ryan Reynolds Goes From Deadpool To Just Dead In 'Criminal'


Ryan Reynolds Kevin Costner

Ryan Reynolds goes from Deadpool to Dead Operative in his new crime thriller 'Criminal', starring Kevin Costner. While he's not the subject of the medical experiment this time (and doesn't survive into much of the movie), he plays a CIA agent whose mind is lost in the head of a psychotic killer.

Kevin Costner and Gal GadotKevin Costner and Gal Gadot star in Criminal

Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner) is one of the most dangerous criminals America has ever seen, with an absolute lack of empathy and no regards for the consequences of his actions. In other words, he is the definition of a psychopath. Thus, that makes him the perfect candidate for a secret government operation - literally. He is forced to take part in one neuroscientist's (Tommy Lee Jones) experiment to transplant the mind of a respected CIA agent (Ryan Reynolds) who is now deceased into his own mind, in a bid to uncover vital information from the agent Bill Pope's incomplete mission.
