This is Crowe's movie to carry and he does it with an earthy realism that reminds of the actor he is beneath the persona.

The Next Three Days is kind of a throwback to the classic action movies Hollywood put out in the mid-nineties - the 'one man versus the world' era of thrillers, in which lantern-jawed heroes fight to save their family against improbable odds

It's the kind of edge of your seat thriller that leaves you in constant suspense of how the situation will resolve.

Managing to overcome the contrivances and implausibilities of the storyline, The Next Three Days succeeds through the sheer verisimilitude of the performances and direction.

...The most effective scenes employ the Hitchcockian maxim that you can show a couple kissing for as long as you like provided there's a bomb under the bed. Haggis has plenty of bombs and plenty of beds to put them under.

If it didn't feel like the movie took three days to get through, this could have been a pretty good thriller.

Occasionally preposterous and bogged down by Haggis' usual lack of subtlety, but the film is also captivating and energetic, particularly during the thrilling final act.

Haggis somehow pulls off a delicate balancing act -- a gravity-bound fantasy scenario -- showing us John's desperate, dark, human need while playing out made-for-movie scenes.

Although no hidden gem, Russell Crowe certainly could've done much worse than filling Mel Gibson's family-man-of-action shoes. And Paul Haggis thankfully shelves his sociology-degree sermonizing for this pure-pulp prison-break thriller.

Solid performances, beautiful camerawork. It just would've been nice if they'd included some more twists and turns in the otherwise decent script

There are a few moments which seem a little too neat but on the whole, this is a tense thriller that doesn't always choose the well-trodden path.

A taut yet hopeful film that brings some credibility into the newest of film debates.

A good story well told: solid, meticulously crafted, with that similar, slightly old-fashioned feeling you got from watching a film like Salt.

It's an all-consuming task, and Crowe makes this obsessiveness plausible.

A sumptuous study of grief, ineptitude and desperation, and whilst it might run a little long, it's a decidedly brutal and startlingly human film

While the performances are solid and there are a handful of truly suspenseful moments, this thriller fails to rise above the formula.

It's not your average escape movie, in fact you wouldn't put that label on it,"
