Editorial Reviews

In this heart pounding action-thriller, Kevin Costner is a dangerous international spy, who is determined to give up his high stakes life to finally build a closer relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he's previously kept at arm's length to keep out of danger. But first, he must complete one last mission- even if it means juggling the two toughest assignments yet: hunting down the world's most ruthless terrorist and looking after his teenage daughter for the first time in ten years, while his wife is out of town.

Ethan (Kevin Costner) has sacrificed his relationship with his family to be a super spy for the CIA. On his most recent assignment he was to kill "The Albino" (Tomas Lemarquis) while Vivi (Amber Heard) was to kill the Wolf (Richard Sammel). Ethan breaks down as his brain cancer has entered his lungs. He is given 3-5 months to live.

Ethan returns to his Parisian apartment only to discover a poor family of squatters from Africa living there with the police unwilling to evict them. He attempts to reestablish his relationship with his estranged wife playing the death card and that of his daughter, by not telling her.

Vivi shows up with an experimental drug that may work, but in doing so he must renege on his promise to his wife and kill "The Wolf" as he is the only man who has seen him. Ethan now attempts to re-establish his estranged relationship with his moody teen daughter while trying to kill the world's most wanted man...and on occasion using parenting advice from people he is attempting to extract information.

I love a film that shows originality and good dialogue. Amber Heard played a great, even if unrealistic, femme fatale noir. The film breaks from the formula of utilizing the daughter as an asset. It is a funny heartwarming action film. Something for everyone.

I have seen this three times now and each time gets better and better. I love the concept of this movie about a CIA agent dying and having to step aside important assignments. Along comes a sexy, dominatrix type agent who can make Ethan's life go on so that he may reconnect with his wife and daughter. The action is thrilling and suspenseful; the story is heartwarming and you are rooting for the good guys through it all. Kevin Costner makes this worth while and Hailee Steinfeld is a great little actress who will go far. Ignore critics, buy 3 Days to Kill, have a bowl of popcorn and enjoy.

this movie is smart, clever and fast paced..the actions scenes are first rate,..this is so obviously a Luc Besson film...if you liked "The Professional" you will recognize the brilliant economy of speech in this film..this film is for people with a 3 digit i.q. it's not the Transformers...you can't sleep through it. i really enjoyed it. The director of Charleys Angels..with a script from Luc Besson...Kevin Costner at his best. and the young girl from True Grit and Enders Game as his daughter. ..as soon as it ended, i wanted to watch it again.

Went to see this in the theaters, and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It switches from over-the-top (and a little offbeat) action / violence to sly humor on a dime. It's sort of a character study of an aging CIA operative suffering from inoperable cancer. The basic plot is simple. Do one last job for a chance of receiving an experimental drug that may save his life. The protagonist's best days are clearly behind him, yet he's still no one to mess with. And being an operative, his family life has suffered, especially the relationship with his daughter. Knowing his days are numbered, he tries to reestablish that relationship. Some of the best moments involve this attempt and helps to insert the right amount of humor at often unusual and critical times.

I have always gravitated to this type of movie. Serious at times, but offbeat with surprising humor at other times. Joss Whedon (no he didn't direct this) is famous for this type of flavor. Whedon's Firefly, Serenity and The Avengers come immediately to mind.

Between 1 and 10, I give "3 Days to Kill" a solid 8 (or a 4-star rating). Looking for something a bit different with some aptly applied humor to break the tension? This film fit the bill for me. I'll be happy to add this movie to my blu-ray collection.

After viewing the blu-ray: For picture and sound quality, Oblivion is my reference blu-ray. That being said, here are my thoughts on 3 Days to Kill:

Picture quality: 8 out of 10 -- very good to excellent, but had a couple of minor problems with some of the editing choices.
Audio quality: 8 out of 10 -- A surprising bass monster (rattled everything in sight) and in general very good throughout, although a bit exaggerated in certain scenes.

"3 Days to Kill" is an intriguing if uneven spy thriller starring Kevin Costner. Costner is Ethan Renner, an aging CIA agent who learns at the end of a botched operation that he has terminal brain cancer. Renner returns to Paris for an awkward reunion with his estranged wife Christine (Connie Nielson) and daughter Zoey (Hailee Steinfeld). However, the CIA isn't quite finished with Renner. Vivi Delay (Amber Heard), the rather exotic agent who has picked up the botched operation, knows Renner is the only person who can identify an illicit WMD dealer known as the Wolf. She offers him an experimental drug for his cancer, in return for just one or two more little jobs...

The movie is an odd mixture of elements. The core of the movie is a string of extremely well-staged action sequences. In between is the family drama of Renner's reconnection with a rebellious daughter, parts of which ring true; the sometimes laugh-out-loud humor of Renner's dealings with the string of suspects who will lead him back to the Wolf; and his evolving relationship with the African family that has squatted in his apartment. The location shooting in Paris is quite good. There is a strong element of betrayal built into the story; it is unclear right to the end who Renner can trust or how things might, or might not, work out for him. Recommended as an afternoon's entertainment if the viewer is a Costner fan.
