Last Three Days is an indie action film that makes the most of its limited budget.  The cinematography and style are very well done, with camera work and effects that belie the indie nature of this movie.  It is an exciting mystery film that lets you slowly put together what happened to this cop as he tries to piece together his missing time.  But the film initially starts with some nice backstory, and I really appreciated this part.  It lets you get to know the characters, especially lead Robert Palmer Watkins.  I really enjoyed Watkins's character, a sort of perfect cop who seems to have the perfect life.  That is, until you get under the surface and see what else is going on.  And the chemistry between him and his partner Dave (Brown) is fun to see.  The two are very different cops and the different ways that they approach things helps the overall story.  It's a good cop, bad cop mentality that really gives this film some much needed layering.  

However, the story itself is a little hard to follow.  It starts off well enough, but when it gets into the missing days it starts to get a little confusing.  Flashbacks are half explained and sometimes it was tough to tell what was present time vs. past time.  The whole time mechanic is half explained and I was confused about how much he was aware of it during the time.  Additionally The Last Three Days can occasionally feel a little overly dramatic.  But overall the film has a lot going for it.  It has good special effects, really enjoyable music, an exciting cast, and an interesting story that should keep you hooked as you try to find out what happened.  It also has some great cinematography and shot choice that are surprising to see from an action indie.  

Last Three Days will hook you with its good cast and characters, standout performance from Watkins, interesting story, and exciting action.  

Rent it.
