3 Days to Kill [DVD]
3 Days to Kill [DVD]
Dvd ~ Kevin Costner
Price: £4.95

4.0 out of 5 stars I really liked this film, 29 Mar. 2015
This review is from: 3 Days to Kill [DVD] (DVD)
I really liked this film. Nothing particularly new, but Costner is a very likable leading man, and holds the film together in both the action stakes, and the quieter scenes. There's also a nice vein of humour running through the film, good sporadic action and excellent production values. S top film in my book, and sits happily in my collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blakes 10 out of 10!, 17 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An incredible show in many ways.I wont bore you with plot synopsis,and the like,but this is an overlooked gem in the sci-fi arsenal.The true value of the show,comes from the chemistry of the characters,and the actors who played them.The show has a certain magic for me,as I had fond memories of it as a child,but recent viewings helped me appreciate it on a whole new level.Yes,the scipts lose sophistication,as the season goes on.Terry Nation had probably run out of ideas by the end,but the dialogue is still sharp on occasion.By the end of the season,the viewer is totally engaged by the characters,and the plots seem secondary,somehow.Special mention must go to Michael Keating as the thief,Vila,who will do whatever it takes to survive,and especially Paul Darrow Avon.There cannot be a more perfect melding of actor and character as this.It's no exaggeration to say that Avon is THE most interesting character to EVER appear on british tv!He's worth the price of entry alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE best sit-com EVER, 16 Sept. 2010
I grew up on the exploits of the On The Buses characters,but on revisiting the scripts and shows 40 years later,it shows what an incredible stroke of luck was involved to create such a piece of pure entertainment.For a start,the initial premise involves an ordinary cockney bus-driver,who despairs of his disfunctional family,his dogs life at work,and his never-ending persuit of women and love.Not much on paper,but,the scripts are surprisingly fresh and relevant.A show ahead of its time,in many ways.It can appeal across the board.My own young children love the show.A lot of the credit must also go to the actors.Special mention must go to the following;Stephen Lewis(Blakey),who is awesome as the exasperated inspector.I just love the way he says "Butler".Just a name or word,but he's SO funny!Bob Grant,as Jack,the randy conductor.I can't beleive he could 'pull' any woman,but he's great nonetheless.Finally.special accolades must go to Michael Robbins,as Arthur,Stans brother in law.He's nothing short of magnificent,giving,in my opinion,THE most comically amazing performance in ANY show/film/whatever EVER!Just a look,grimace,or abarked line is enough to reduce me(and my family to stitches!)Perfect scripts,perfect cast,perfect fun!
