The Next Three Days
Three years ago, his wife was arrested and sent to prison for killing her boss. He believes she is innocent, but the legal options have run out. She is getting suicidal. In three days time, she will be moved to a more secure facility. He decides the only option to save her and his family is to break her out of jail. However, as a teacher, he is inadequately prepared... so he does some homework, gets a weapon, and switches to action mode. The critics found the transformation difficult to swallow.

Roger Ebert quote iconOnce glimmers of Gladiator begin to reveal themselves, a certain credibility is lost. The movie is a competent thriller, but maybe could have been more.

Peter Travers quote iconIt's damn hard to enjoy a thriller when you don't, won't, can't believe a word of it.

C. Fuchs quote iconWhat's offered here is more likely to elicit guffaws, eye-rolling or walking out rather than rooting for the protagonist to succeed.

Tomatometer quote iconRussell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks give it their all, but their solid performances aren't quite enough to compensate for The Next Three Days' uneven pace and implausible plot.
