Three Days To Kill - DVD Review

          Kevin Costner’s back in Three Days To Kill, playing a CIA agent named Ethan Renner.  He’s dying of cancer and he only has a few months to live so he wants to reconnect with his daughter who he hasn’t seen for years.  

           Amber Heard plays Vivi Delay, a woman who may have the solutions She has a drug that that is in the experimental phase and could cure his disease.   Costner will have access to this drug on one condition - he must find the two men that he failed to kill on his last mission.  They are the Albino and the Wolf.  

           Much of the movie is based on a nice blend of action and comedy.  Costner looks fot thees two men by questioning other men.  He captures one man and while he is interrogating him in the bathroom, his daughter calls him and said she wasnt to make him dinner but doesn’t know hot to make the sause for the pasta.  Fortunately, the man that Ethan is questioning knows of a long lost family recepie.  

             The other part of the movie has Ethan trying to reconnect with his daughter.  It seems difficult along the way with Ethan buying his duaghter a bike that she doesn’t want because she doesn’t know how to riide one.  Of course, Ethan gets closer to her by teaching her to ride the bike. 

              I thought this was a good role for Costner.  Most of his movies don’t have that blend of comedy and action but this one was a great hit for me.   It seemed that many other critics didn’t like the blend since it came from Luc Besson, who did the Taken movies.  I didn’t see the confusion that other critics saw since the spy movie was a blend with a family divorce and a daughter who drew close to her father while learning to ride a bike or learning to dance before going to her prom. 

              Of course, this is the kind of movie that is fun and you can check your brain at the door.  Many of these movies get criticized because the plot is absurd and I can agree on that but all in all, it was a fun movie for me and I’m happy to give it five stars.
