2014: Week 13 1/2: 3 Days to Kill

3 Days to Kill

Genre: Action, Drama

Main Players: Kevin Costner, Hallie Steinfeld, Amber Heard

General Gist: A dying CIA agent is offered an experimental drug to save his life, in exchange for one last assignment

Deb's Take:  This movie actually has a little "spin" in the title.  This movie has two separate story lines going on at the same time.  In one story line, Kevin Costner is reconnecting with his teenage daughter, Haillie Steinfeld, while her mother is out of town for 3 days...Hence, they have "3 days to kill." In the second story line, Kevin Costner is paired with Amber Heard in an attempt to save his life from cancer, and he has 3 days to kill...literally, the bad guys.  Ok, so the second story line is much more complicated then that, but all in all that's the general idea.

I went to this movie with my high school BFF as Tiff and I were 1600 miles away from each other for the week. We both agreed that the storyline with his daughter was a little unnecessary.  There were some moments that could have been intermingled, but sometimes the whole idea was a little overkilled.  The movie had a lot of unnecessary scenes, that really didn't play into the whole movie itself.  There was a lot of action, fast driving, shooting, and bad guys, but all in all I wasn't really impressed with the story lines.  Kevin Costner is still a great actor, and Amber Heard was decent but this movie just didn't really hit the spot for me.

Deb's Rate: Rent It

Preview: Just catching up on all our reviews. A few more to come.
