Here's my quick take on 3 Days to Kill.
- It's fun to see Kevin Costner in an action film
- The film has some really nice relational moments
- This movie is a by the numbers cliche action film
- Some of the humor falls flat
This is a light hearted action film that kids every plot point you're expecting. The previews attempted to portray it as if it's like the movie Taken (they have the same writter, Luc Besson), but in reality the two films have very different tones. They share a writer and aging lead taking a turn as a trained killer with a daughter. That is where the similarities end.
RATING - 6.5 out of 10 - I liked the movie, but it's a cliche film you'll forget quickly.
