Marty and I had HIGH Expectations for “3 Days to Kill” and we were not disappointed. We both enjoyed this film. Will you miss a lot by waiting for the small screen? Not in the sense of technology or visual effects. However, you will miss a chance to see an entertaining film and possibly good popcorn with cheddar cheese salt and a Diet Coke.
I was a sucker for this plot! An older fellow who was really good at what he did in his career and then turned out to pasture too soon – only to find himself drawn back in by a young and sexual woman! Hey, I wasn’t taking her home – just looking at her.
I won’t lie and say the plot was complicated but it did have some interesting twists and turns and emotional development of the characters that filled the 1 hour and 57 minutes. The development of the re-acquaintance of Kevin’s’ Ex-Wife and Daughter was excellent. There was also some good role play by some of the minor characters that added depth to the film.
If you like Kevin Kostner don’t miss this one in the theater!
