Lee's Movie Info - Criminal Review (1003 words)
Criminal is the first film in which John C. Reilly has secured a headlining role; for years he has played supporting parts in many films and usually has been memorable as a side guy.
Criminal reminded me of Ash Wednesday, a feature that has been seen by about thirty people worldwide; I rented it when it came out on DVD because I had been a fan of filmmaker Edward Burns’ previous movie, Sidewalks of New York.
Criminal lacks that curiosity factor, as while we have two likable leads, this duo is stuck with an inappropriate script considering their talent.
Criminal Movie Review (641 words)
Criminal is the name of this film and also an apt description of the fact that it wasn’t a sizable theatrical hit.
Criminal, as some may know, is a very faithful English-language remake of a recent Argentinean film “Nine Queens” (Nueve Reinas) and I honestly can’t remember a more perfectly executed con picture since.
This isn’t one of those genre films that rely on a twists and turns around every corner - you pretty much have it laid before you from the start and it’s a hell of a lot of fun trying to decide who is conning who and who's playing on which side.
