4.0 out of 5 stars The French connection..., March 29, 2014
This review is from: 3 Days to Kill (DVD)
"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.
