    It's damn hard to enjoy a thriller when you don't, won't, can't believe a word of it. show more

    If The Next Three Days were just a little more mindless, it might have been more joyful. show more

    Far-fetched is fine in most action flicks. And it would work here if Days were a straightforward police story. show more

    How you feel about Paul Haggis's new film may depend on your contrivance threshold. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The Next Three Days is genre fare - no pretensions, no nonsense. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    It's laughably, eye-rollingly absurd. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    Although involving, this remake of a recent French film never reaches the anticipated heights of excitement and suspense. show more

    The plot is worked out with care, and it takes its time, unapologetically, in a manner that's perfectly suited to thinking adults. The whole enterprise reeks of class. show more

    I didn't buy how The Next Three Days plays out - but I almost bought it, and that's good enough for a thriller. show more

    Offers enough suspense to make it worth the price of admission. show more

    Great movie and it keeps you guessing right up to the last minute. Good to see more than once.

    Okay, this is tough for me because Russell Crowe is my favorite actor. It was just....OK. There, I said it. Crowe did the best he could, but, the story was lame. The protagonist, a cop that shows up half way into the movie seems to have ESP in trailing Crowe's character, always a step behind. Rent it, don't buy!

    i kept thinking it was about to get good, ************* boring almost the whole way through.

    Probably one of the best movies released lately. Amazing chase scenes, and whitty escapes. Very well planned out in almost every aspect, including the ending.
