3 Days to Kill

Ethan Renner (Kevin Costner) is a spy – estranged from both his wife Christine (Connie Nielsen) and daughter Zoey (Hailee Steinfeld) – who gets diagnosed with brain cancer early on in the movie. With months to live, he decides to get his affairs in order and go to Paris, where Christine and Zoey live, to reconnect with his family for whatever time he has left.

But when Christine leaves for a business trip, and he’s tasked with three days of babysitting the daughter he barely knows, he’s pulled back into the game by a CIA handler named Vivi Delay (Amber Heard) who promises him an experimental drug that may potentially save his life in return for killing a mysterious villain named the Wolf (Richard Sammel).

Roger Moore of the McClatchy-Tribune News Service writes, “Daft and sloppy as it is, 3 Days to Kill rarely fails to entertain. From the bike riding lessons on Montmartre to dopey interrogation of the Italian ‘Accountant,’ interrupted for a marinara sauce recipe, it’s all part and parcel of the madness of writer Luc Besson’s, From Paris, With Love, filtered through McG and slapping a new stamp of ‘cool’ on the aging Oscar winner, Costner.”
