- MadMax: Fury Road
20 years ago, Josh Hartnett was starring in big Hollywood movies. You could have seen him in The Faculty, Pearl Harbor, Black Hawk Down, Wicker Park, Sin City, Lucky Number Slevin, and a bunch of other films. However, he is out of the radar nowadays. Josh Hartnett decided to devote more time to his children. He acts in small indie movies now.
Ashton Kutcher wants to spend more time with his wife Mila Kunis and their children. He had founded a venture capital film and built a successful Silicon Valley investing career. After the 2013 biographical drama film Jobs, which received poor reviews, he has not been acting in big movies.
Robert Patrick did not abandon his acting career. He starred in hundreds of films. However, nobody has seen the vast majority of these movies. Robert is mostly known as a deadly cyborg from the 1991 action film Terminator 2: Judgment. He has not received any big roles since then, maybe except ‘the X-files’
This comedian with a funny face used to play the leading roles in comedy films. He starred in Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, The Hot Chick, The Benchwarmers, and many more movies.

This actor was only 30 years old when he starred in the 1997 disaster film Titanic. However, he slowly went out of the radar after this blockbuster despite the good looks and young age. Unfortunately, Billy Zane went to star in Uwe Ball’s BloodRayne and other questionable B-grade movies.
I picked the best crime films where protagonists do bad things.

However, there is no unsolvable problem when you have a cold head and a strong character.
The film is based on a true story of George Jung, one of the biggest drug traffickers and smugglers in the USA. He became incredibly rich and lived a life full of luxury. However, his story did not end well. There are no happy endings for criminals, so Jung’s is not the greatest role model.
