Sure, I may be biased on saying that this is a buy but the crew came back with a bang and showed how 3D can be used for films. While it may suck for you rich bastards that got their hands on a 3D HD TV not getting a Blu-Ray 3D release, this gives everyone a chance to laugh their ass off, which easily makes this a buy.
The Next Three Days
Life seems perfect for John Brennan until his wife, Lara, is arrested for a murder she says she didn’t commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately risking everything for the woman he loves.
Starring: Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Brian Dennehy, Olivia Wilde and Liam Neeson.
Directed by Paul Haggis (Walker, Texas Ranger; Crash)
Extras include: Making The Next Three Days; The Men of The Next Three Days; True Escapes for Love, Cast Moments; Deleted Scenes; Extended Scenes; Full-Length Bump Key Video.
Oh look, it’s another American remake of an European movie. While the situation and what Russell Crowe’s character does in the film is outrageous, it’s not a bad flick as well. If you got the time and are looking for something that can help kill the time, then check this flick out.
