Mini Review - The Next Three Days

The Next Three Days (out now) is about a teacher (Russell Crowe) who sees his wife jailed for a murder she didn't commit. He then goes on a quest to break her out of prison. The film is a little too neat in places but this is still a tense thriller that goes down some unexpected paths. I'm now keen to see the 2007 French film (Pour Elle) on which it is based. Grade: B+.
