One Sad Action Feature
bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
1 May 2011
This HBO made for television feature film has the distinction of being
having the farewell performances of both Chuck Connors and Van Johnson
albeit in feature roles. Three Days To A Kill is a rather mindless
action flick where a Columbian drug lord captures a US Ambassador who
is on a special mission to Columbia to help the Colombians deal with
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
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.
