Weekend Review: 3 Days To Kill

A review of the film "3 Days To Kill."

This weekend movie review is going to be relatively short mainly because there was not a whole lot of content that came out of this weekend's review, 3 Days to Kill. It was safe to presume that this film's preview could have been Kevin Costner's version of "Taken." However, this film falls short of that presumption and would end up on the lower end of a scale if I ever choose to use one. The only good thing that came from this film was how they deceived the audience into thinking it would be good to watch.

"3 Days To Kill" can be assumed that the lead character, Ethan Runner, has for the title's sake, three days to kill. He does, but not in the manner in which one was first led to believe. No, it's three days spent to reconnect with his daughter. The film continued to spiral out of control. It twisted and turned into something that just shattered in the end. So much so that the only thing I looked forward to in the film was the random appearances by Amber Heard.

It seemed like the director took really bad notes from M. Night Shyamalan films and mixed it with random story lines from assorted action movies. I should have used my sixth sense and went with the slightly higher rated film, Pompeii. Then again, I was not in the mood for a history lesson with a sappy love story.

I wish there was more to say about this film, but it wouldn't be worth the read. I asked WOWT photographer Justin Cheney's thoughts of the film based off the trailer. I wish I had him around to tell me his thoughts before I went out to watch this movie. Hopefully, next weekend's movie experience will be better.
