“3 Days To Kill”

MOVIE ONE STAR

Rated PG-13

1 hour 45 minutes

Kevin Costner, Amber Heard, Haillee Steinfeld

You know, there was a time when Kevin Costner would have fired his agent for even considering a dumb thriller like “3 Days To Kill”.

Now, Costner’s got to swallow his pride and take what he can get, which isn’t much. Costner’s worried that he’s getting too old to go cavorting around Europe killing for the CIA.

Costner’s caught between ridding the world of bad guys and having a clear conscience trying to properly raise his teenage daughter Haille Steinfeld, who by the way also deserved a higher quality movie on her resume than “3 Days To Kill”.

You can tell there’s something about “3 Days To Kill” that just doesn’t feel right. The uneasy mixture of mirth and mayhem, and Costner’s far away look, back to a time when he had his pick of much better movies. The storyline struggles to balance his family and patriotic responsibilities.

Kevin Costner can wave good-bye to what’s left of his once stellar career if he keeps making sub-par movies like “3 Days To Kill”.

Which I like to call Costner’s catastrophe which makes the movie good for one star.

“3 Days To Kill” might only appeal to moviegoers with too much time on their hands.
