Family Movie Review: 3 Days to Kill (PG-13)

3DaysToKill ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): half-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13         Length: 113 minutes

Age Appropriate For: 14+. An American spy/assassin shoots his way through Paris while trying to reconnect with his teenage daughter and avoid the come-ons of his increasingly scantily dressed CIA handler. Sigh. So lots of (mostly bloodless) violence, including a decapitation and torture; weird racist overtones involving African and Muslim characters; cursing; an almost-rape scene; implied sexual content; and sexual innuendo, like a CIA meeting at a burlesque club. If you want stupid things, this movie has got them.

Kevin Costner really needed a paycheck, right? In fact, everyone involved must have needed a paycheck, because there is no other excuse for ‘3 Days to Kill.’

By Roxana Hadadi

The world already has one older action star, and that man is Liam Neeson. Yet no other man approach his mantle! Bruce Willis embarrassed himself with “Red 2” and “A Good Day to Die Hard,” and Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables 2” wasn’t as good as its predecessor, and Arnold Schwarzenegger really shouldn’t have taken “The Last Stand.” They’re all trying to usurp what Neeson has done with this later stage of his career, and to that dogpile can go Kevin Costner, whose turn as a spy in “3 Days to Kill” is only one bad part of a phenomenally bad movie.
