Detailed plot synopsis reviews of 3 days to Kill

An international spy named Ethan Renner works for the CIA as an agent. He has been told that he is dying. Ethan decides that he wants to give up his dangerous lifestyle and reconnect with his estranged wife and daughter who are living in Paris. However, he's been persuaded out of retirement for one last job in exchange for an experimental drug that can potentially save his life. He has been keeping his dangerous career a secret from his wife and daughter in hopes of protecting them. He feels as though its time for him to become a good father and husband. When arriving to Paris his wife tells him she needs to go out of town for a few days and wants him to watch their daughter. A woman named Vivi happens to call Ethan and offers a life saving cure in exchange for capturing a terrorist he's been on the look out for. He hesitantly accepts, but now he needs to find a way to juggle two tough assignments; looking out for his daughter who he has not looked out for in the past ten years and capturing a cold blooded terrorist.

Best part of story, including ending: What I enjoyed about the movie is the amount of suspense and the ability to keep me engaged in the movie. I also happened to like the engaging father and daughter story line.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene would be when Ethan has an Italian man captured in the restroom and asks him, " So you're Italian right? so you must know a little about spaghetti sauce." the main replies with, " Oh spaghetti sauce, red or white" and Ethan picks up the phone as asks her daughter which sauce she prefers for dinner.

Opinion about the main character: What I like about the main character is his willingness to want to reconnect with his daughter and wife. You can sense the love he has for his daughter and wanting to be the father she deserved. I respect his strength in fighting through his challenges in the film.
