3 DAYS TO KILL is an action thriller about a dying CIA agent who is given a potentially life-saving drug in exchange for taking one final assignment.

Violence

Violent scenes include a man holding a woman's head over a lift shaft before it's implied that a descending lift decapitates her. There are several action sequences with explosions, shootings and fights. There are also torture scenes, although these lack violent detail and there is an element of comedy in them. In another scene, a teenage girl is sexually threatened by a group of men before a man appears and fights them off.

Sex

Topless female dancers move suggestively in a club, with dry ice mostly concealing the nudity. There is also a scene in which a woman's exposed buttocks are visible whilst her back is tattooed.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k') and some milder bad language, including 'son of a bitch', 'shit', 'bastard', 'fricking', 'turds' and 'Jesus Christ'.

In one scene, a teenage girl says she punched someone at school for calling her Pakistani friend a 'Paki'. The film also includes a scene in which a man receives an apparently life-saving injection in the arm.
