The Next Three Days Review

DoBlu
8 March 2011
  • Excerpt: In a world full of high-tech security and police work, the obvious has become secondary. We need DNA evidence, because fingerprints no longer exist. At least, that’s what The Next Three Days apparently wants us to believe, introducing a gaping plot hole with regards to a bump key that goes completely unchecked. That leaves Three Days to make it based on character alone, and you can’t say much for them.

The Next Three Days

High-Def Digest
22 February 2011
  • Conclusion: As a brainless action movie, 'The Next Three Days' does a good job at keeping your attention. If that's all you want, then this is the movie for you. However, John's plight, and his descent into the criminal world, are the more fascinating aspects of this movie, ones which are completely left in the background. He looks nervous a lot of the time, but his mood doesn't really change. He doesn't really change, and the plot works conveniently with him so he doesn't have to.

The Next Three Days Blu-ray Review

20 February 2011
  • Summary: Have you ever experienced a recurring dream or nightmare? Strangely, humans seem almost preprogrammed to undergo several categories of this odd phenomenon. Most of us have had the occasional foray into the "unprepared" dreamscape, where we're suddenly back in school on a big test day, without having studied, or conversely find ourselves in our workplace where some project is due and we don't have a clue how to complete it.

The Next Three Days

Cinema Blend
19 November 2010
  • Excerpt: The Next Three Days isn’t a prison break movie. It’s a heist movie in which the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been in any other robbery. What John Brennan (Russell Crowe) sets out to steal is more precious than any amount of money or gold. He’s stealing his wife. Locked away in prison for a crime he doesn’t believe she committed, John’s wife Lara (Elizabeth Banks) has lost hope. After their last appeal is turned down, Lara attempts suicide.

The Next Three Days

DVD Talk
18 November 2010
  • Excerpt: With "The Next Three Days," writer/director Paul Haggis steps into the thriller genre after losing himself to matters of the heart with films such as "Crash" and "In the Valley of Elah." The change is needed, but the demands of drama have bent his sense of timing, leaving his new picture a perfectly stimulating jailbreak movie that doesn't know exactly when to start or when to quit.

The Next Three Days

AV Club
18 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Adapted from the 2008 French thriller Pour Elle , Paul Haggis’ The Next Three Days runs nearly half an hour longer, and in genre movies like this, every extra minute is a lost one. Attempting to pivot from the weighty self-importance of his last two efforts, In The Valley Of Elah and the Oscar-winning Crash , Haggis tries to fashion a straightforward, relatively unpretentious prison-break thriller, but old habits die hard.
