3 DAYS TO KILL

3 Days to Kill” is pretty terrible, but it’s not really Kevin Costner’s fault. He plays a grizzled CIA hitman who learns he has brain cancer and a few months to live so he drops in on his estranged daughter (Hailee Steinfeld) and ex-wife (Connie Nielsen) in Paris while simultaneously trying to track and kill an international evildoer named The Wolf (Richard Sammel) so his hotsy-totsy agency handler (Amber Heard) will give him an experimental CIA brain cancer cure and -- oh, the hell with it. Every so often a bad movie will become so mind-bogglingly, existentially bad that it turns perversely good. Unfortunately, “3 Days to Kill” isn’t that bad. It’s just not any good. Too bad. Directed by McG and co-written by Luc Besson.
