Seasoned CIA spook/cleaner Ethan Renner (Kevin Costner) is a highly skilled badass for the U.S.; but, with the recent diagnosis of a fatal cancer, his outlook on life is shifted amd a desire to connect to his wife and daughter is now a priority. Alas top agent Vivi Delay (Amber Heard) has other plans for Ethan, she needs him to stop one more set of international terrorists, The Albino and The Wolf (Tomas Lemarquis, Richard Sammel). Balancing home life and work life has never been easy for Ethan, but perhaps this last job will pay off with big dividends?3daystokill Partially written by Luc Besson this latest spy/action thriller has all the bits we’ve come to expect from films such as Taken, Die Hard, The Transporter and so on; unfortunately, the actual dialogue and execution of all of these bits just comes across as stale, formulaic, derivative, and laugh worthy. Meanwhile the discord between plot lines and haphazard story structure makes things messier, by the final act eye rolls and question marks probably sum things up best. Questionable editing and production choices increase the cheap factor further. More of a rental or a pass all together. 3 Days to Kill is rated PG-13.
