I watched this movie yesterday. The most positive thing about Greek outdoors cinemas is the fact that they show/screen older movies with very cheap ticket or similar best offers in order to raise their earnings. If someone didn't watch a movie which it was released in late June or early July, he could watch it some weeks later. I wouldn't say that I was crazy about "3 Days To Kill" although it was released at the first week of July and the competition wasn't strong. So, we decided to watch it this time because it had a tempting price and the outdoor cinema is quite close to our homes.
"3 Days To Kill" is an action movie with a CIA agent who wants to quit because he is dying and he tries to reconnect with his family. However, a sexy blonde woman (Amber Heard) offers him a drug that could save his life in exchange for one last assignment. Everyone can understand that the script is not something special. We have watched a lot of movies with these kinds of stories. All of them have similar plots and almost the same ending. Ιn this particular case, "3 Days To Kill" is quite enjoyable although it's not one of the best movies this year. It has a lot of action scenes, funny dialogues and it's easy to watch it. Maybe the participation of Kevin Costner played an important role for this because he seemed that he enjoyed the movie although the Golden Razzies always appreciate his acting..He had some nominations in the past and three winnings for his performances in "Robin Hood : Prince of Thieves", "Wyatt Earp" and "The Postman". Luc Besson is the writer of the story and he is also the producer of the movie. It was not difficult to understand it because the movie was filmed in Paris and the main story was similar with dozens of his movies. As to the direction of the movie, I wouldn't say that it was great and McG's (director) movies are always hit (Terminator : Salvation) or miss (Charlie's Angels / Charlie's Angels : Full Throttle). However, "3 Days To Kill" is somewhere in the middle of them. The positive facts about this movie was the editing, the sexy appearance of Amber Heard and the likeable performance of Hailee Steinfield who was nominated for an Academy Award for "Best Supporting Actress" four years ago.
"3 Days To Kill" doesn't belong to the category of movies which are very successful at the Box Office but for a French-American production, it had very decent earnings. Of course, it's far away from the numbers of "Taken" but with this result would be difficult to achieve it. "Taken" was much better than it. Though it managed to outreach its budget and it would be a good choice for watching it at home if you feel bored or tired. Maybe, it will change your mood. It has a representative average score in IMDB and if I could compare it with other movies, it deserved this rating. Let's hope that Luc Besson will not write another similar story because the peak of his career is "Taken". He could make family movies based on "3 Days To Kill" because the family part was very entertaining..
