  • There are times when a Kilmer performance is like watching a clock move: well-timed and oddly compelling, even though it's totally predictable. That's the case with Felon, which doesn't belong to Kilmer but which he steals anyhow. show more

  • The most startling performance comes from Val Kilmer as Wade's hardened cellmate, a man who combines bitterness with wisdom. show more

  • Kilmer and Dorff, who was also an executive producer, immerse themselves in difficult roles. show more
