24 HOURS TO LIVE

Cert 15 Stars 2

This desperately silly redemption thriller sees Ethan Hawke stars as a hallucinating hitman with a conscience.

He’s offered a million dollars a day to kill ‘a whistle-blowing do-gooder’, but when the mission turns deadly, a special serum allow him 24 hours to live and finish the job.

Handily a digital clock is implanted in his wrist so he can watch his life wind down along with our interest.

There’s an impressive sweep from China to Africa and the US but even Rutger Hauer’s appearance as a philosophising beach bum can’t raise the script and leaden direction.
