A dangerous international spy is determined to give up his high stakes life to finally build a closer relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he's previously kept at arm's length to keep out of danger. But first, he must complete one last mission - even if it means juggling the two toughest assignments yet: hunting down the world's most ruthless terrorist and looking after his teenage daughter for the first time in ten years, while his wife is out of town.

From beginning to middle to end, 3 Days to Kill is really a joyride! The team that delivered this is first rate at knowing how to develop a great story. It has shades of The Bodyguard, romance as touching as Message In A Bottle, relationship problems with kids like in The War---so many great aspects and elements that I can't begin to name them all. The one thing I do know is that Kevin Costner is one great and talented actor. Every scene he is just amazing in. He delivers lines with gentleness or gusto, gruff or tender. He knows how to call it every time. Critics do not understand what he is all about. You have to see every movie he's done and you will understand what a good and awesome actor can do and does achieve. If you are bad at what you do, you don't last. Kevin Costner will last and be legendary forever. Amber Heard was given a lot of flack over this too, but she is beautiful and quite the dominatrix and makes a perfect heroine and in no way need of rescuing. Hailey Steinfeld is going to go very far in the biz. She's beautiful and extremely talented. She was amazing in her scenes with Kevin. I just can't rave about this movie enough. I loved Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, but this is ten times better. Don't be put out by somebody saying negative things about this. They're wrong---like they usually are.
