After two Taken films, you'd think by now that villains would realize that Liam Neeson is NOT to be f*cked with. But I guess we need another movie just as a reminder. As many of you already know, I was a HUGE fan of Taken (I still watch it every time it comes on TV), but I felt the sequel was painfully awful. So when I heard about this third installment, simply titled TAKEN 3, I had very low hopes for it. I mean, who else could be abducted from this unfortunate little family?
Well, it looks like there's a whole new batch of baddies trying to frame Bryan Mills (Neeson) for --gasp!-- the murder of his wife Lenore (who I have to say I am not sad to see go since she was SO annoying). When we reunite with our favorite man with "a particular set of skills," he's on the run from pretty much every major law enforcement official, while at the same time trying to protect his
Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his “particular set of skills,” to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.
So now it's been confirmed that this will in fact be the last of the series. Which means this film will likely be very, very congested with high-octane action series (I just hope Bryan doesn't die, because then I'd cry). Director Olivier Megaton (with co-writer Luc Besson) also return for this last hurrah. Forest Whitaker joins the franchise as a law official who may or may not be actually trying to help Bryan (based on the trailer), along with Dougray Scott (who I feel I haven't seen since forever).
