Three Men to Kill is a French thriller from 1980 directed by Jacques Deray and starring Alain Delon, Dalila Di Lazzaro, and Michel Auclair. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Jean-Patrick Manchette. The movie begins with a young man named Gerfaut (Alain Delon), who is a damaged, cynical, and deeply unhappy individual. Gerfaut has a strange job transporting corpses from one place to another. One day, he is approached by a strange man who offers him a job. The job is simple. Gerfaut must go to an island and destroy a factory run by a wealthy industrialist named Mr. Leca (Michel Auclair).

With nothing to lose, Gerfaut accepts the job and travels to the island. There, he meets a beautiful woman named Sarah (Dalila Di Lazzaro), who is a former lover of Mr. Leca. Gerfaut soon learns that Leca is not just an ordinary industrialist. He is a ruthless, violent man who will do anything to protect his business, and his life.

As Gerfaut works to destroy the factory, the job becomes increasingly dangerous. He is pursued by Leca's henchmen, and the island becomes a battleground for the two sides. Along the way, Gerfaut and Sarah form a strong bond, but their relationship is complicated by their pasts and the danger they are in.

The film is beautifully shot, with stunning cinematography that captures the isolation and danger of the island. The characters are complex and intriguing, particularly Gerfaut, who is a man on the edge, capable of extreme violence but also capable of great tenderness.

The action sequences are well choreographed, with intense shootouts and thrilling chase scenes. The violence is brutal and graphic, but never gratuitous. It serves a purpose and adds to the tension and stakes of the story.

At its heart, Three Men to Kill is a story about power, corruption, and the human cost of greed. It is a dark, gritty, and uncompromising film that explores the darker side of human nature. The acting is top-notch, with Alain Delon giving a standout performance as the troubled and complex Gerfaut.

Overall, Three Men to Kill is an excellent thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

Three Men to Kill is a 1980 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 37 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.3.
