The Next Three Days (2010) Reviews
#974 in DVD


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. Lionsgate presents a Hwy 61 Films / Lionsgate production. The Next Three Days stars Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Brian Dennehy, Olivia Wilde and Liam Neeson, and is directed by Paul Haggis from a screenplay by Paul Haggis. The Next Three Days is produced by Michael Nozik and Paul Haggis, and Olivier Delbosc and Marc Missonnier.

    I watched this movie yesterday and I enjoyed every minute of it. At first I was a little sceptical about another Russel Crowe movie - especially with a love story aspect to it - I'm not a huge fan of Mr. Crowe so I really wasn't sure.

    The movie is about a man trying to complete and execute the perfect plan to get his wife out of jail (after she has been wrongly accused and convicted of murdering her boss). The story follows the husband’s attempts to clear his wife's name and to try and provide a "normal" life for their son who doesn't understand any of what is going on. In my opinion the producers did a great job outlining the husbands progression through hope for his wife's release, and then determination to get her out and then to complete madness when he has to commit various crimes along the way (including arson, robbery, and murder) just to get her out.

    I was glued to the screen the entire 2 hours, and I would probably watch it again to catch bits that I missed the first time. Definitely a must see movie and a great one to watch with guys or girls. The movie is the perfect mix of a love story (how far would you go for the person you love and your family) and an action movies (there is a large portion of fighting/gangs/chase) and mystery (you never really find out who committed the murder.)
