Heading security is Captain Chuck Connors and after the Ambassador Karol Brown is taken Connors is being reamed out for failure by Admiral Van Johnson. Van gives Chuck three days to get the Ambassador back or else.
Connors then hires Fred Williamson a soldier of fortune who then recruits both Bo Svenson as an explosives expert and Kim Dakour who used to be involved with drug lord Henry Silva as part of as team. Dakour was so involved with him, she bore him a son.
In this 90 minute film, everything that can go wrong does for Williamson and Svenson and Dakour. If you can't figure out what the problem is or who, you haven't seen too many of these films. Which in this case is probably fortunate.
Three Days To Kill is one sad action feature and not something that two long standing veterans of Hollywood would have wanted to go out on. But Connors looked ill during the film, he died later in the year. Johnson just retired and maybe there was nothing better on the horizon for him.
Lots of gun-play and explosions for those who like that stuff and two Hollywood veterans who've been in a lot better films.
