Ethan Hawke Has ’24 Hours To Live’ And We Wish Him The Best

He’s too serious to be the next Nicolas Cage.


24 Hours To Live (NC16)

Starring Ethan Hawke, Rutger Hauer, Xu Qing

 Directed by Brian Smrz

An assassin (Ethan Hawke) is killed while working on a job but is revived by an experimental treatment. Alas, his resurrection expires in 24 hours. And the hired gun wants to spend his last day tearing his foes a new one. 

Despite its countdown-to-oblivion premise, this thriller is rarely exciting; it spits and sputters, and when ready to rev up, it moves into the slow lane. Hawke’s a brilliant actor who can do action, but to embrace his role in this silly story, he’s required to go bat-shit crazy. Translation: he needs to go full Jason Statham (or Nicolas Cage).
