Not even Amber Heard's good looks could get me through this pile of laziness. Honestly, I wouldn't even consider her to be a decent actress. I don't have anything against her as a person, but as an actress, well, that's a slightly different story. She's had a couple decent films, like two of them, but that's about it. There's nothing more to really be said here. She's good to look at, but these looks aren't enough to get me to the end of this film's excruciating 117 minute runtime. The film lingers on way too long, never once feeling tightly packed together. It's an overstretched, unfunny, incredibly dull two hours of my life that I'm never getting back. Well, it's an hour and fifty-seven minutes of my life that I'm never getting back, including credits.
This film wouldn't work without giving us a chance to care about the characters. It wouldn't work without dedicating time to setting up their story, giving us a reason to want to watch these events with them. The film wouldn't have worked if the father-daughter relationship was skimmed over and only shown in brief, with stupid shots that are completely irrelevant forced in there to at least try and show character development. Without all these things then 3 Days to Kill just wouldn't work, and guess what, it doesn't work. It literally lacks all these things.
There's even moments of humour forced into this giant mess of a movie. This humour could've been the saving grace of it all (I doubt it, but it could've at least made it a tad more watchable), but instead it makes me despise it even more. The comedy is so forced, unnatural and stupid. The humour's not even good enough to be classified as juvenile. It's worse than that. It's just... it's just all round pathetic. I pity Kevin Costner for acting in a film as bad as this. At least his performance isn't mind numbing, right? RIGHT?!?!
