A married couple's life is turned upside down when the wife is accused of a murder. Lara Brennan is arrested for murdering her boss with whom she had an argument. It seems she was seen leaving the scene of the crime and her fingerprints were on the murder weapon. Her husband, John would spend the next few years trying to get her released, but there's no evidence that negates the evidence against her. And when the strain of being separated from her family, especially her son, gets to her, John decides to break her out. So he does a lot of research to find a way.
Fairly solid thriller from director Paul Haggis, this is a remake of the 2008 French film Pour Elle. Normally I always try and watch the original first but I've broken my rule here.
Russell Crowe plays a school teacher whos wife is arrested for the murder of a colleague. The evidence all points to her and she is sent to prison for life. Her husband maintains she is innocent and when all hopes of getting her out legally are exhausted, he decides to break her out and puts together a masterplan.
A pretty solid film if I'm being honest, and seems to be fairly highly rated judging by the reviews. Interestingly it has a higher rating on imdb than the…
I am unhappy when I don't have much to write about a film, but I blame movies like The Next Three Days for lulling me into such a sense of boredom that I just don't care to even think about them.
I want to say that I hated everything about this film, but that wouldn't be accurate. I think it would be better put if said that I was apathetic towards everything in this film. I didn't care about the story (which is terrible), I didn't care about the characters (which are one note), and the Paul Haggis' directing is so vanilla that literally anyone could have directed this film and done just as good of a job.
Russell Crowe for some will always be Ridley Scott's Maximus Decimus Meridius. For me he shook off that hard-man image a long time ago with more complex and rewarding roles that showed a more rounded side to his skills as an actor.
The Next Three Days is a Paul Haggis film that was a minor box-office hit that pitted a vulnerable and emotional Crowe against a system that had incarcerated his wife for murder. A victim of coincidences she maintains her innocence but fights a losing battle for freedom. As their lives fall apart Crowe's schoolteacher plans an audacious escape attempt to reunite his fractured family. With some small roles for the likes of Brian Dennehy,Olivia Wilde and a real…
If your spouse was locked up for a crime you were convinced they didn't commit, and you believed you could break them out, would you do it? That's the central moral question at the heart of The Next Three Days, Paul Haggis' remake of Fred Cavaye & Guillaume Lemans' French thriller Pour Elle (Anything For Her), and a film you always feel has loftier aspirations than its reach ends up grasping. Russell Crowe almost feels neutered in the lead role of John Brennan, the mild mannered college professor in Pittsburgh whose life ends up being destroyed when wife Lara is jailed for murdering a work colleague, leaving him to take care of their young son. You sense almost that despite Haggis'…
The Next Three Days is a somewhat mediocre thriller by Paul Haggis, director of Crash (which I couldn't even finish) and In the Valley of Elah (which is definitely better than this one). When a man's wife is accused of murder, he's convinced of her innocence. But when all evidence suggest that she's guilty, he decides to break her out and flee the country with their young son.
Russel Crowe does a pretty good job, and carries the movie well. Other than that it's a run-of-the-mill, average Hollywood thriller, where a regular guy suddenly becomes a master vigilante because he's desperate. The character isn't very well written, but his motives are obviously clear, and we do sympathize with him.
"The Next Three Days" has a solid lead performance from Russell Crowe, and a great third act but everything else about the movie is unfortunately boring and rather standard. It has some tense moments but the overall final product is predictable and dull. Nothing awful or anything but with the cast, I expected a lot more.
Started off promising, but got boring less than an hour in. The movie is over 2 hours long, but probably shouldn't have been more than 90-100 minutes
i don't remember watching this movie, so it must be good
is this the prequel of Iron Man 3?
I did not like the french version, the original. This was pretty much the same, frame by frame, but somehow a bit more speedy and exiting. This also did not have annoying Vincent Lindon in it, but Russel Crowe. But again, so not to believe it would be possible to do all those things.......
The most emotionally distressing movie I've ever seen
Elaborate plan with some unexpected twists.
A wow surprise in the car, though not realistic.
