Three Days to Kill - Movie Review

Who's in it?


What's it about?

Kevin Costner's ex-CIA agent is dying of cancer and returns to Paris to see his family when Amber Heard's Operations Head offers him a life saving drug for each kill he makes in a final job.

Any Good?

There's a couple of things in this movie that don't 'add up', and by don't add up I mean they're totally ridiculous. A man who lived in Paris, got married and had a child there not speaking a single word of French may sound like an American cliché, but come on now, adding in that all the French speak fluent English 24/7 was just stupid.

Kevin Costner is a cowboy CIA I'm too old for this sh*t type, but he can be funny at times even through his angsty father style. He is brilliant in some scenes as Liam Neeson in Taken saving his daughter, while the daughter is kind of like Kristen Steward with a little more range and a lot more annoying script. Mitat is hilarious, all his dialogue is as funny as the trouble he gets himself in.

Even for what I said at the beginning, I enjoyed this movie because it was an entertaining with all the action scenes and it was funny more often than thrilling. The whole father-daughter thing had one good part of the film but the rest was annoying because of the annoyingly written daughter part.
