    Actually, the only truly obnoxious thing about 3 Days to Kill is that the violent scenes are more congenial than the family scenes, because the teenage daughter (Hailee Steinfeld) here is presented as a sour, nasty brat. show more

    The result is a convoluted mess that has one good twist and two good car chases. But it's hardly enough to bring this spy flick in from the cold. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Like Liam Neeson's "Taken" series, Costner's 3 Days to Kill finds its absentee-dad action hero facing off against hordes of goons and gorillas - not to rescue his loved ones, but to prove himself to them, and maybe get a little extra quality time, too. show more

    It only comes alive when the star briefly shows the casual looseness that once was his calling card. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    It’s all absurd in a way that is typical Besson. But it’s also undeniably entertaining, and it marks a relatively pain-free way to kill, if not three days, at least a couple of hours. show more

    The film’s tone is wildly uneven. show more

    Without Costner’s movie star equity, this thing could have fallen apart in the first 30 minutes. He keeps us involved, even as we’re thinking: Wait, WHAT just happened? show more

    Daft and sloppy as it is, 3 Days rarely fails to entertain. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    3 Days to Kill is a comic variation on the "Taken" movies, which Besson also co-wrote and produced, starring Liam Neeson as a daughter-rescuing spy. show more

    Alan Jones Slant Magazine

    McG may strip down his approach and serve up a variety of slick, well-paced shoot-outs and car chases, but his technical skill can't quite overcome the story's lazy sense of humor and incomprehensible account of international espionage. show more

    I had wanted to see the movie but walked out after 25 minutes. The action scenes were poorly edited and it was a thriller wanna-be. So sad I spent the money.

    This movie is a disjointed , hard to follow, poorly written and edited piece of movie making. It's a wanna-be thriller with patchy chases & poor syntax. Shame on you Kevin. RAF

    Great flick. Don't listen to those snob critics. Costner was great. Lots of action and humor (which worked well)

    The story line was great but felt someone else would of better been suited for the part Amber Heard played. Maybe a older actor like Sean Connery and have it played with some comic but more serious. Would of made the movie more of a reality. Either that or changed her character to something less ************ was ridiculous to have her as Costner's lead. Took away from the movie. It was good until she came into play.

    Had its moments but just did not deliver the story in any believable fashion kind of drab rather than exciting I would wait for the video release

    This movie is a good example of why movies real people want to see are always trashed by critics. Critics like movies that are full of artzy fartzy crap. 3 Days to Kill was full of action mixed with a little comedy. My wife and I both laughed and enjoyed this movie. It's a good mixture of action and fun. I find it's easier to watch movies critics hate then to try and watch ones they love.

    Kevin Costner was the sexy, but everything else was blah...

    The image and life style of a tough CIA killing agent and a loving father/husband just don't mix that well in real life... You don't teach your daughter to dance and ride a bike, then go killing some one. That simple! Go, go write a better screenplay.
