5 THE CLOCK IS TICKING AND THE CHASE IS ON!MovieAddict | 23/05/2011 | See all MovieAddict's reviews (1336)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Russell Crowe yet again proves that he can really mix things up from high drama, thillers to action. The Next Three Days is one of the most gripping thrillers I have seen in a long time.I had heard it was good from strong word of mouth but was not expecting it to be as good as this, as the film perfectly balances the the drama driven first half with the thrilling action of the prison break second half.Credit should also go to Elizabeth Banks who plays Crowe's not Guilty/ Guilty ? wife as she certainly gives a brilliant performance of the accused wife and mother facing life in the slammer.Liam Neeson even pops up for five minutes for a coffee and a smoke to give some advice.But it's the get away plan the Crowe's character hatchers that although in the real world improbable, for a movie makes perfect entertainment. The film also has a heart as the scene where Crowe hugs his dad ( Brian Dennehy) for what could be the last time is superbly done.If your a fan of Crowe or just love damn good movies The Next Three Days is a briliantly gripping, thrilling and tense movie that the only being a cerificate 12 the whole family can watch.See If You Like.The FugitiveU.S. Marshalls.Salt.The Town.
