3 Days to Kill red light

If it’s meant to be a spy thriller, it’s not exciting. If it’s meant to be a comedy, it’s not funny. If it’s meant to be dumb, absurd, and risible, it’s a success.
I’m “biast” (pro): love Kevin Costner

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer looked ridiculous

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Rented it cheap the other day because I felt like a fun thriller, and I had the exact same reaction. The tone was all over the place. This guy was an amazingly skilled killer, but it kept throwing in comedy and family drama. Both areas suffered for it since it never committed to either. What movie was I watching?

All these reviews your posting up, but not one for Dragon 2. I see you greenighted it, but I’d like to read your thoughts on it. Soon?

I’m tempted to borrow a line from one of MaryAnn’s other movie reviews and call this flick “the first action movie of the Trump era.”

But, alas, it came out during the Obama Administration…
