A thief with a unique code of professional ethics is double-crossed by his crew and left for dead. Assuming a new disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, he looks to hijack the score of the crew's latest heist.
Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds) is a CIA agent on a mission in London tracking down a shadowy hacker nicknamed "The Dutchman." When he gets mysteriously ambushed and killed, an experimental procedure is used to transfer his memories into dangerous convict Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner). When he wakes up with the CIA agent's memories, his mission is to find The Dutchman and make the deal with him before the hacker launches ICBM's and starts World War III. But complications soon arise and the mission turns personal.
The action scenes, filmed at London University, could only be filmed outside of term time, when students were not on campus. See more »

They messed with my brain. Thought they knew what they'd get, but they were wrong. They don't know me. I do not know what happens next, but this I do know: you hurt me... I hurt you worse.

Michael Pitt, who played Jan Stroop, and Gary Oldman, who played bad-ass CIA guy, Quaker Wells, both played Mason Verger, of "Hannibal" fame. Oldman played the elderly version of Verger, trying to trap and torture Hannibal Lecter. Pitt played a young Verger version in the more recent, and now defunct, "Hannibal" television series. While Oldman is a critically acclaimed actor, and widely recognized for his expertise. Pitt has played some very unusual roles throughout the course of his career. One of his most memorable, at least for me, was one of his early roles. As a high school psychopath, opposite his classmate and psychopath buddy, Ryan Gosling, and cop, Sandra Bullock, in "Murder By Numbers". An awesome flick. If you haven't viewed it... You should.
