  • Richard Roeper

    Without Costner’s movie star equity, this thing could have fallen apart in the first 30 minutes. He keeps us involved, even as we’re thinking: Wait, WHAT just happened?

  • Drew Taylor

    3 Days to Kill might not be art, but it's better than most of the overtly violent action fare that litters the multiplexes these days, thanks largely to the fact that its heart is almost as big as its explosions.

  • Steven Rea

    Like Liam Neeson's "Taken" series, Costner's 3 Days to Kill finds its absentee-dad action hero facing off against hordes of goons and gorillas - not to rescue his loved ones, but to prove himself to them, and maybe get a little extra quality time, too.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Daft and sloppy as it is, 3 Days rarely fails to entertain.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    It’s all absurd in a way that is typical Besson. But it’s also undeniably entertaining, and it marks a relatively pain-free way to kill, if not three days, at least a couple of hours.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    The film’s tone is wildly uneven. Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Of course, the movie doesn't work. But Costner does. No matter now nonsensical and uneven 3 Days to Kill gets, he's miraculously consistent.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    If the movie had been content to replicate the Taken formula, and left the fatherhood angle as a subtext, it would be easier to take. Instead, even for Costner admirers, it’s a hard 2 hours to kill.

  • Mick LaSalle

    Actually, the only truly obnoxious thing about 3 Days to Kill is that the violent scenes are more congenial than the family scenes, because the teenage daughter (Hailee Steinfeld) here is presented as a sour, nasty brat.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    A comic-tragic-sentimental genre hodgepodge that wants to make you feel all the feelings amid all that action spectacle. It doesn’t entirely deliver, but at times you can’t help but admire its strangeness.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Costner responds by bringing an easy integrity and seemingly effortless humanity to his part. And hence making a messy, meandering and silly movie rather more watchable than it deserves to be. Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    3 Days to Kill is a comic variation on the "Taken" movies, which Besson also co-wrote and produced, starring Liam Neeson as a daughter-rescuing spy.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The film is helped by Costner's self-deprecating, aw-shucks charm. The actor is game whether he's being asked to fight off truculent teens or treacherous terrorists.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    By any reasonable standard, 3 Days to Kill is a terrible movie: incoherent, crudely brutal, dumbly retrograde in its geo- and gender politics. But it is also, as much because of as in spite of these failings, kind of fun.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Alan Jones

    McG may strip down his approach and serve up a variety of slick, well-paced shoot-outs and car chases, but his technical skill can't quite overcome the story's lazy sense of humor and incomprehensible account of international espionage.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Although it’s not impossible to mix humor and violence, as “Midnight Run” proves, it isn’t easy — as 3 Days to Kill proves. Points for effort all the way around, and welcome back, Costner. Let’s hope things get better from here.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The movie never finds a way to blend the emotional and the rat-a-tat-tat into one seamless package the way that Besson did in his one and only good movie, The Professional (1994).

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Psychologists would doubtless have a field day with the film’s lumpy brew of semi-incestuous paternal angst, midlife machismo, all-American dick-swinging and moderate racism, but we imagine most of them are too busy to waste two hours on this sludge.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    The central conceit in 3 Days to Kill – the family man moonlighting as a gun-for-hire – is hardly a fresh one. It worked in films released 10 or 20 years ago (see True Lies or Mr. and Mrs. Smith), but here it feels played out, clichéd.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The end result is still not a very good film, but it is one that boasts some enjoyable moments -- but only if you find yourself with two hours to kill.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It’s artificial, annoying, and boring.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    The result is a convoluted mess that has one good twist and two good car chases. But it's hardly enough to bring this spy flick in from the cold.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    3 Days to Kill feels like two very different movies, neither of which is particularly good.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    It’s many different films at once—all muddled, all unsatisfying, and all crying out for Liam Neeson’s participation.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Geoff Berkshire

    The lukewarm family dynamics sit awkwardly alongside equally underwhelming action sequences.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    It's a movie that's races from no place to get nowhere.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Costner, by contrast, is too laidback to intimidate; he seems less battle-wearied than simply weary, nailing only half of the profitable “aging ass-kicker” equation. Firefights and car chases just don’t suit this movie star of advancing years.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    3 Days to Kill is pretty terrible, but it’s not really Kevin Costner’s fault.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Besson provided the story and co-wrote the screenplay for a film directed by McG, who does his usual McGhastly job with action and is McGruesome when it comes to comedy.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    It only comes alive when the star briefly shows the casual looseness that once was his calling card.
