Criminal: Old School Actors/Old School Action
Criminal stars Kevin Coster, Tommy Lee Jones, and Gary Oldham, plus Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot—all great dramatic actors who have done some really great roles in memorable Action Movies.
Coster couldn't have been better in 3 Days to Kill, and with this cast, it's a no fail movie. Add Tom Struthers as 2nd Unit Director (what an incredible list of movies to his credit! He's 2nd Unit Director/Stunt Coordinator on the upcoming Warcraft, was Stunt Coordinator on Redemption, The Dark Knight Rises, John Carter, X-Men First Class, Season of the Witch, Inception, Terminator Salvation, The Dark Knight, and more . . . ) and I think it's going to pack a wallop with old-school Action scenes. Frankly, I'm a little tired of Superhero Movies, bring on real tough guys (at any age).
The script is interesting. The writers are: Douglas Cook (aka Douglas S. Cook, he passed away at just 56 in 2015) and David Weisberg (together they wrote the screen play for The Rock with Mark Rosner—say no more), and Synopsis: The memories & skills of a deceased CIA agent are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous convict. A man who "was "in out of prison more than half his life, [a man who]'s got no impulse or control, [is] unable to calculate the consequence of his actions, [and] has a total lack of empathy for anybody or anything. [A man who] feels nothing." How interesting to awaken such a violent man to morality and empathy. It's such a natural next movie (story wise) after 3 Days to Kill. At the heart of what makes an Action Movie, an Action Movie is a hero who's on the right side—an Action Movie Essential. If you didn't see 3 Days to Kill, I suggest you watch.
Look for it in theaters on April 15, 2016 . . .
3 DAYS TO KILL TRAILER
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi When Grown Men CryMichael Bay and Benghazi: What a story, what a movie!
John Krasinski—such screen presence—at some point he eclipses everyone. That's a good thing, after all, he is the lead character, yet every actor's performance is really good. Even with as little as we know of the characters, we get really attached in a very short time. This "true story" is so compelling that even though there were many entertaining moments of Camaraderie and Dominance, and in-your-face love of America, you can't help but feel the movie's condemnation of those in command in the military/government who sat and watched and did practically nothing.
Here are three of the six real-life heroes, and an interview that drives the truth home:

Shadow Warriors Project—a worthy cause to support.
After such tremendous bravery, what do these heroes get? From their site: Shadow Warriors Project (SWP) is a foundation dedicated to the support of private military security contractors, conducting paramilitary security operations in some of the world's most dangerous areas. It is the only charity of its kind. Although the private security contractor has served in the military he is considered a civilian and does not receive the same support offered to injured active military or veterans. SWP serves the private contractor by offering financial support through heartfelt donations. By easing the load of these injured warriors it allows them to focus on healing, as an individual as well as the family unit.
The individuals receiving support from the SWP are special operatives that were hired either through the CIA or via private security companies. These people are in need of assistance because there is no post-engagement support for them on their return to the U.S. like there is for military veterans. These operatives may have been killed or wounded, and SWP's goal is to serve as a support system to them and/or their family. The individual financial assistance will be for medical bills, PTSD treatment, and other family therapies. We also want to provide education to the public about who these warriors are, and support events that bring the Shadow Warriors and their family members together for events and fundraisers.
