A dangerous international spy 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.
Action Drama Thriller - This is an action thriller with some comedic overtones as well as a
strong element of family drama. While there are a number of action
scenes, the pace gets a little slow and talky when the focus shifts
on the family drama. Fans of Kevin Costner should be pleased by this
now-rare big screen starring vehicle. Language, violence, and adult
subject matter make the film too intense for kids.
Roger EbertFull Review Average ...Costner responds by bringing an easy integrity and seemingly effortless humanity to his part. And hence making a messy, meandering and silly movie rather more watchable than it deserves to be.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average The Kevin Costner spy story goes nowhere, and not very fast, either.
Washington PostFull Review Below Average '3 Days to Kill' is two bad movies in one.
NY PostFull Review Poor Costner just killing time in '3 Days to Kill'
