Miracle drug is a reel drag; NOW SHOWING.

Byline: Chris Hunneysett

3 Days To Kill Cert12A

GRIZZLED and growling Kevin Costner stars as a retired CIA hitman in this numbskull thriller.

Ethan Renner (Costner) is told he has brain cancer and three months to live, so he goes to Paris to reconnect with ex-wife Tina (Connie Nielsen) and teenage daughter Zoey (Hailee Steinfeld). Then vampish CIA agent Vivi (Amber Heard) arrives on the scene and offers him an experimental drug that may prolong his life.

But he'll only get it if he agrees to track down an arms trafficker nicknamed The Wolf (Richard Sammel). There are humdrum car-chases, shootouts, kidnaps and beatings that take place in tattoo-parlours, nightclubs, stripjoints and the streets of Paris.

The valiant cast give it everything they've got.

But even if I had a year to kill, I wouldn't want to suffer this nonsense again.
