In this heart pounding action-thriller, Kevin Costner is a dangerous international spy, who 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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Charlie's Angels director McG used to know how to marshal a decent action scene (if nothing else), but that touch seems to have deserted him."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"The movie never finds a way to blend the emotional and the rat-a-tat-tat into one seamless package the way that Besson did in his one and only good movie, The Professional."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"( ... ) a mindlessly entertaining, disjointed, frequently unbelievable hell-for-leather action adventure."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"French filmmaker Luc Besson continues to combine family themes with intense violence (see Taken), but at least this film has a wry sense of humour about it."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"The director McG seems uncertain whether he should concentrate on the action or the family drama."
‑ Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"Every gag is premised on the fact that Renner allows his work and personal lives to overlap, though this contradicts everything we've been told about him and would obviously heighten the risk to his loved ones."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"How did 3 Days to Kill, which doesn't have the worst imaginable premise, turn out this bad?"
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Fine, in a mid-budget, wholly inconsequential way."
‑ Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
"Something very special: a Kevin Costner vehicle that makes both The Postman and Waterworld seem fearsomely substantial."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"If it's meant to be a spy movie, it's not exciting. If it's meant to be a comedy, it's not funny. If it's meant to be dumb, absurd, and risible, it's a success."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Pure trash but it's entertaining as hell."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"To the degree that the film works, it's because Costner plays the straight man."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"3 Days to Kill is a frequently bizarre, never boring mash-up that doesn't come together yet perfectly encapsulates everything both good and bad about Luc Besson's recent output"
‑ Richard Haridy, Quickflix
"This time the Taken formula of ultra-violence and sentiment fails to deliver the same guilty-pleasure thrills."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Far too generic and cliched, and offers very little we haven't seen before."
‑ Stefan Pape, HeyUGuys
