“3 Days to Kill” is a whacky killer of a film

Reviewed by Nancy Snipper

Ethan Renner (Kevin Costner) longs to quit his day job as an assassin for the CIA and be with his darling daughter Zoey and his wife Christine, but when a mysterious sexy woman (Amber Heard) who is a covert CIA operative gives him the offer of a lifetime – his life –  to be specific , he can’t refuse the final assignment. He is to find the “Wolf”, the accountant of an evil albino and kill him. The “Wolf” wants to sell a bomb to an international consortium.  He is dying from brain cancer and she has the magic injections to prolong his life. In the film, he kills, saves his daughter from a possible rape and wins back his wife. The big twist comes when he discovers Zoey’s boyfriend’s dad works with the Wolf. The film has whacky humor and Costner plays his role as an absentee dad who wants to mend his ways with deadpan coolness. Director, McG made a thriller that can’t decide if his film should be about a father/daughter relationship or about getting the bad guy.
