Crowe shines in ‘The Next Three Days’

Courtesy of Lionsgate
Elizabeth Banks as Laura Brennan and Russell Crowe as John Brennan star in the new thriller “The Next Three Days.” The film is set to be released on Nov. 19.

The Krikorian Pico Rivera Village Walk 15 held a special screening last Wednesday for the upcoming blockbuster “The Next Three Days.”

The film stars Russell Crowe (Gladiator, American Gangster) and Elizabeth Banks (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Zack and Miri Make A Porno), with a few appearances from Liam Neeson (The Phantom Menace, Taken) and Olivia Wilde (House M.D., Year One).

In the movie, John Brennan (Crowe) and wife, Lara Brennan’s (Banks) lives take a turn when Lara is accused of murder.

John then looks to Damon Pennington (Neeson) for aid in breaking out his imprisoned spouse.

Not knowing what to expect, I left the theater having felt lucky to be able to attend the showing of this suspenseful thriller.

Despite its slow introduction, the compelling story draws you in with its various twists and turns and an ending you won’t believe.

Crowe delivers a truly convincing performance while Banks seals the deal in her seemingly routine co-star role.

With music by Danny Elfman (The Simpsons, A Nightmare Before Christmas), the score was set to lure the audience into the movie’s dramatic, suspenseful nature. The supportive music brings this production to a full circle in audio/visual balance in which the music engulfs the viewers as they are drawn into the visual translation of script to screenplay.  

The film made for a great storyline and was supported by big-name cast.

This blind-siding thriller is rated PG-13 and is set to hit theatres this Friday.
