“3 Days to Kill”, written by Luc Besson & Adi Hasak, is a new movie filled with intense action scenes mixed with a little family conflict.

CIA agent Ethan Renner (Kevin Costner) is an experienced CIA agent on assignment when he collapses and is unable to move or shoot his gun at his target. He ends up in the hospital and is told he is terminally ill with a few months to live.

With the news of his upcoming demise, Ethan travels back to Paris to spend the rest of his time with his wife Christine (Connie Nielsen) and daughter Zoey (Hailee Steinfeld). But when an experimental drug comes to the attention of Ethan by an elite CIA assassin Vivi Delay (Amber Heard), he feels like it’s a risk he has to take – even if it means going back into the field.

The story takes a few unexpected turns thanks to the Albino (Tómas Lemarquis) and the Wolf (Richard Sammel), the two people he is after in order to earn the use of the experimental drug.

The movie had a well-developed plot line, and had a balance of drama, action and comedy mixed into one.

The movie includes some gory scenes, but not enough to take away from the plot. The movie also was set in Paris, which made for beautiful shots of the scenery.

The acting in this movie was well executed from all of the characters. “3 Days to Kill” keeps you on your toes every minute of the movie from beginning to end. The ending of the movie is well, ironic, but you have to see the movie to figure it out.
