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

"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
"...a fun look at how even the toughest guys - the baddest asses on the planet - are capable of an emotional evening with the ladies of their lives."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"A goofy, brainless, but undeniably fun ride."
‑ John Hanlon, John Hanlon Reviews
"Costner's calm save "Days.""
‑ Charles Koplinski, Illinois Times
"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
"...the scattered vibe prevents the viewer from working up any interest in or enthusiasm for the central character's ongoing exploits."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Director McG teams up with a grizzled Kevin Costner and a story by French populist Luc Besson for a terrific collision of action, family drama and nutty humour."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Five seconds: That's the maximum length of any uninterrupted shot in McG's action thriller 3 Days to Kill. Call it filmmaking for the Adderall Generation."
‑ Steve Davis, Austin Chronicle
"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
"Just sit back and enjoy. "3 Days to Kill" is big dumb fun anchored by a good actor's refusal to take himself too seriously."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"... tries to string together some stylish action sequences but can't balance them with the muddled domestic drama."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"It's just as ridiculous as it sounds - and, thankfully, played mostly for laughs."
‑ Jake Wilson, Sydney Morning Herald
"An impossibly sexy operative shows up from the Agency - maybe it's a modeling agency? - and Fausts him a bargain: Kill some bad guys and she'll give him some magic beans ..."
‑ Burl Burlingame, Honolulu Star-Advertiser
