    Synopsis


    The Next Three Days
    His wife convicted of a murder she swears she did not commit, a college professor plots to break her out of prison in this thriller starring Russell Crowe and Liam Neeson. John Brennan (Crowe) and his wife, Lara (Elizabeth Banks), were happily married and raising a family when their lives fell apart in the blink of an eye. Lara has been charged with murder, and despite every effort to prove her innocence, the judge sentences her to an extended prison sentence. Meanwhile, on the outside, John files multiple appeals while struggling to raise their children and maintain his career. Lara's future starts to look especially grim, however, after the final appeal is rejected, and she admits that she'd rather commit suicide than spend the rest of her life behind bars. Determined to save his wife after the justice system fails her, John seeks the advice of ex-convict Damon Pennington (Liam Neeson), who staged his own daring prison escape, in order to draw up an airtight plan. Later, John prepares to put his life on the line for the woman he loves, and sets the plan into motion with the knowledge that one false move could be their last. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Russell Crowe plays a man who's wife is convicted of a murder he's convinced she didn't commit. After she tries to kill herself, he decides to break her out of jail. Although the movie felt somewhat slow for a portion of it, ultimately I have to say that I enjoyed it, and can highly recommend it. Here's why: 1. It's a smart movie. It makes you think, and you're not told every last detail up front. In fact, you don't even know if the wife was innocent of murder or not for most of the movie. You're led through the story with pieces to the puzzle, and by the end it all comes together. It was really interesting. 2. It was not predictable. I found myself constantly evaluating what was happening, and trying to figure out what would come next. When you think you know what's coming, you realize you don't. It had some interesting turns and twists. Although it started out slow, I think the way it progressed was important for the development of the characters and the story. It was, in my opinion, a good decision to develop the story this way, and worth sitting through. 3. It challenges your values. I had to keep wondering if I thought Crowe's character was doing right or not, and I found I kept evaluating whether I wanted him to succeed. Was he a desperate man who was forced to become a hero? Or was he a man who has gone over the edge into darkness? It certainly makes you think. 4. The acting was amazing, as you'd expect from Crowe. We think he's one of the very best actors of our time. Elizabeth Banks played the wife, and she was so believable. I was surprised that Liam Neeson had such a very tiny role, and Brian Dennehy, a powerful actor, barely said anything. Still, their presence in the film added to it. 5. There was some good action. Not a ton of it though, but enough to keep your adrenaline rushing once in a while. The last portion was edge of your seat exciting. Ultimately I'd say this is a very satisfying movie experience. It's different, not a formula, and by the end you're on the edge of your seat

      Good movie SHOULD have done better at the box offi

      I was VERY DISAPPOINTED this film did NOT do well at the box office. Mistake of the studio, released in the USA same day as a Harry Potter movie. I enjoyed the movie. Russell did his usual great job. Good to see Liam IF ONLY FOR 1 SCENE. Yes, you have to buy the plot of a movie that a school teacher is going to get training & skills to break his wife out of jail, etc. There are plot holes. FILM MAKERS, I DID NOT NEED THE THROW UP SCENE. Could have cut away. Russell did a song in it. I had NOT seen Brian Dennehy in ages. Been 20 years since "Presumed Innocent". And, you have to know your stuff. Trudie Styler Sting's wife is in here briefly. A bit long. The ending drug out. I will not input big spoilers here. For a DVD, glad to see some extras on it. Now, complaints on DVD package. One with the card board slip covers. AND, THIS ONE HAS TWO HOLES IN IT, FOR PRICE …….. STUPID MAKES NO SENSE. AND, I KEEP COMPLAINING ABOUT THESE, THE PLASTIC CASES WITH THE INTENTIONAL HOLES IN THEM SO YOUR DVD CAN BE DAMAGED. If you are a fan of Russell’s you will enjoy the film.

      A well conceived and engaging thriller

      This taut thriller is skillfully presented by director, Paul Haggis and carried expertly on actor, Russell Crowe's shoulders like an athletic actor. It is a story of a normal family whose wife/mother is accused and convicted of a murder she says she didn't commit. The tension lies in the moral dilemma of what path the husband (Crowe) will take with his wife in prison. Packaging, blu-ray, picture and sound are good quality. There are four featurettes and deleted scene extras. The movie is presented in 185:1 aspect ratio.

      A great action film

      I purchased this film not knowing what to expect, but what I got was wonderful. It was a very intriguing movie that literally had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. This is definitely Russell Crowe's best movie since Gladiator as this action packed role suits him perfectly. I highly recommend as this has become one of my most watched movies since it was released.

      Even if you are not a fan of Russell Crowe, he was superb in this film. His co-star Elizabeth Banks was also great in the film. It's well worth adding to your personal collection. Crowe as the husband desperate to free his wrongfully convicted wife is convincing and personal. Liam Neeson, despite being in little more than a cameo role, makes the film even better.

      I thought this was one of the better movies I have seen lately from Russell Crowe and overall the story seemed great...Surely the cops moved too fast in coming after him as if they already knew he was doing something wrong but other than that, very enjoyable...I would definitely recommend watching this one...Enjoy! :)
