Storyline

At a Chicago-area naval base, an ambassador is kidnapped. Later, a Navy officer calls his friend Cal for help. A Colombian drug lord is holding the ambassador, and the officer wants Cal to rescue the man. Cal convinces the officer to get a pardon for imprisoned explosives expert Rick, and together Cal and Rick form an uneasy partnership. They travel to meet Yolanda, a stripper who supposedly knows the location of this drug lord, named Perez (who looks like a creation out of Madame Tussaud's). Our threesome then sets about to rescue the ambassador. Cal, Rick, and Yolanda meet resistance at every turn; apparently Perez's men have the drop on them. After multiple shootouts, Cal convinces Yolanda to use her son as a pawn to draw Perez away from his home, and then all hell breaks loose. Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

One Sad Action Feature
1 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

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 those folks.

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.
