Product Description

Amazon.ca

The powerful presence of Russell Crowe and the skillful writing and directing of Paul Haggis (Crash) give The Next Three Days an emotional heft to match its taut suspense. Schoolteacher John Brennan (Crowe) is stunned when his wife Laura (Elizabeth Banks, W.) is sentenced to life imprisonment for murder. As he watches her emotional decline behind bars, he becomes determined to break her out of prison--and The Next Three Days tracks his meticulous efforts, including wrong turns that threaten to capsize everything. The movie is most compelling in how it follows Brennan's wrenching emotional changes. He's not some cold, focused secret agent--he's torn between his painful devotion to his wife and the frightening possibility of what could go wrong, including the possible cost to their son. The outstanding supporting cast includes Liam Neeson, Brian Dennehy, and rapper RZA, but the vast majority of the movie rests on Crowe's shoulders and he carries it like an athlete. There's something deeply physical about Crowe's performances--his emotions seem to fill his entire body, even as his expressions are incredibly subtle. It's a gripping performance by a remarkable actor, anchoring a well-conceived and engaging thriller. --Bret Fetzer

The general plot is that John Brennan's (Russell Crow) wife is sentenced to life in prison for murder. Convinced of her innocence, he exhausts every alternative until the only option left is to break her out.

The movie starts off slow, it takes about a half hour for John to decide that he will break his wife out of prison. The next hour is him planning and then the last hour is the attempt. I personally really liked the pace to the movie, it built then exploded in the same way as "Taxi Driver" or "Cop Land", or more recently "Drive". It depicts a very realistic approach to how a man with no criminal background would go about trying to break someone out of prison. And coincidentally how imperfect his approach is is really what makes this movie a thriller. He makes so many mistakes along the way, that the break really seems un-doable. And that's why this movie is so great: you're not watching Matt Damon in Bourne Identity who will obviously overcome every obstacle, you're watching a real person in a real world. You're not sure if his wife is in fact innocent, and you're not sure if John has the guts of the ability to do what he has to. A great watch with a great build for an edge of your seat finale!

Lara Brennan (Elizabeth Banks) is convicted of murdering her boss. Overwhelming evidence proves this. Her husband John (Russell Crowe) naturally assumes she is innocent of the dastardly deed. They go through the court system and run out of appeals; so that is that.

Well maybe not. No one realizes whom they are up against. John is a junior college instructor and knows a little bit about human nature. Soon he hones some new skills needed to extricate Lara. What looks like bumbling attempts may alert the authorities prematurely. However most of what looks like mistakes may be part of the big plan.

A small but crucial highpoint in the movie is John's father George (well played by Brian Dennehy) who knows about the plot but is closed mouthed.

Can John outwit the authorities and escape their containment skills? We get the thrill of being part of the chaser and the "chasee".
