    Synopsis


    Taken 3
    Former covert operative Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) must race to protect his daughter while tracking down the criminals who framed him for killing his wife in the adrenaline -fueled third chapter of the Taken saga. Bryan and his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) are taking their first tentative steps toward reconciliation when she is viciously murdered, and he is targeted as the prime suspect. Now, with the CIA, FBI, and every cop in the country hot on his trail, Bryan realizes that it's only a matter of time before his enemies get to his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace), too. Determined to keep her alive at any cost, he realizes that his only hope for saving her is to clear his name before he is captured. But while Bryan does possess the "particular set of skills" to stay one step ahead of the men who want his entire family dead, proving that he's innocent of murder and seeing that the real killers face justice might be the last thing he ever does. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I'll be honest, I have both Taken and Taken 2 in my collection. I did not really see a need for a 3rd, but we all know movie studios (namely Fox) capitalize off of a franchise they see to be successful. And that being said we have the movie Tak3n. Tak3n brings back Bryan Mills who again is trying to live a normal life. Bryan's ex-wife Lenore is having second thoughts about her current marriage to Stuart-and beginning to rekindle her feelings toward Bryan. After Bryan later receives a text from Lenore requesting to meet at his place to bring bagels, Bryan buys the bagels and arrives home; but what he arrives home to is something not even he saw coming. Liam Neeson is fantastic once again as the character Bryan Mills. Possessing both uncanny intelligence and elite fighting skills, he shows an unstoppable determination to solve the mystery of the movie. Maggie Grace does a great job too as his daughter Kim-which in all the movies, I think the bond they share gives these movies a more emphatic vibe; a man going high and low to ensure the safety of the people he cares most about. Famke Janssen returns as Lenore and does a good job, while Dougray Scott plays her ever so insecure husband Stuart. And Forest Whitaker does a Really nice job playing Inspector Franck Dotzler. He's not as easily fooled as the other cops in the movie are, and he and Bryan go back and forth with each other in terms of who's telling the truth and who isn't. The action in the movie is similar to the action scenes in the others, but there are still a few more explosions and surprises to be had in the movie. The story progresses mostly as it should; BUT at a point in the movie I kept telling myself things are becoming a little too predictable which is not exciting for a movie of this caliber. Sometimes the lines an actor says just feels like it can be a bit too much/'unnecessary for the type movie this is. Then too, the primary villain just is uninteresting and does not look exactly threatening. Even so, Taken 3 or (Tak3n if you prefer) manages to still be a worthy successor to the 2nd movie even if it's not better than the first; due to the lead actors/actresses, the action sequences, and the different direction of the (not entirely satisfying) but still good story. All this being said, while Taken 3(or Tak3n if you prefer) is nowhere near the quality of the 2008 film, my sincere hope is that you enjoy it because Taken 3 is An Above Average Experience

      A good sequel, tepid ending to a series

      I saw Taken 3 in the theaters before buying the DVD and to be honest I only bought it to complete my set. I was blown away by the first Taken and was excited for the second, (while not as good as the first it was a decent sequel). So I was really excited about a 3rd movie in the series, but my excitement was mixed with trepidation as I realized this would be the end. And thus I expected a Slam! Bang! Finale, and what I got (it's rare when what we expect and what we get actually mesh) was a B-level finale. Liam Neeson seemed to telephone in his performance, as if to say "if you're watching this then you've spent the money, the joke's on you". Even with a plot twist no one could see coming (which they ruin by putting in the trailer) there was just nothing in the movie to get excited about. They say the concluding act of a trilogy goes back to the beginning and this follows the formula to a "T". All things considered I think the movie would have been more aesthetically pleasing if Xander Berkeley had returned as Famke Janssen's estranged husband Stuart, whom she was divorcing while trying to reconcile with her ex-husband Bryan (Neeson). We see Dougray Scott in the role of Stuart this time out, ( Good, solid actor) I think I would have enjoyed it more if the original cast could have ended the series instead of having lead roles swapped out. All-in-all a fair sequel, but a barely lukewarm, rather tepid ending for the series. C.

      Justice In The Making.

      I know recently we like to see the good guy suffer, or at least get beat up a few times. While this does tend to make for a more exciting finale when the good guy finally comes out of the trenches to give us all a bit of what's lacking in our society today, JUSTICE! But when I watch TV or go to the movies to relax and have some fun, in particular I like the good guy (if he truly is GOOD) to win and the couple to get together and get married & live Happily Ever After. May not be looking at life realistically but do we really go to the movies for more of what we, ourselves unfortunately have to put up with in our daily routine of unfair living? I, personally think not. I go to the movies & watch TV to follow the way of GOD & have good win over evil, man & woman come together in Holy Matrimony. Bring it on TAKEN 3 & hope for TAKEN 4, 5, 6 as long as the end results are the same! If you believe as I do you won't be disappointed with this TAKEN 3!

      A movie that only has face value

      Let me start off by saying I enjoyed Taken 3 much more than Taken 2. But it suffers from the same problem that all three of the movies have. While action movies are not really intended to be held up to close scrutiny and deep thought, this one stretches and snaps the limits of credibility. Brian Mills is a walking Dooms Day Machine. In this movie, he leaves a trail of wrecked cars, destroyed buildings, shot up bodies (living and dead), and angry cops (though he is very careful not to shoot any cops). As long as this was happening overseas, it was easier to rationalize. But happening in LA it doesn't work as well. Without revealing the resolution, at the end of the movie he and the detective shake hands and he goes his merry way. While he may not have committed the murder (no spoiler, it is in the ads) he still broke 1000 other laws in the process. The movie is great for into the eyes, pass through the brain entertainment, but don't retain any of the information or it all falls apart.

      The third (and hopefully last) movie in this franchise. The first one was very good... the second was equally thrilling and changed the rules and some basics to keep a fresh start. This last one, did change some basics and had some interesting plot twists but I am thinking there is only so much they can do with the same family and friends and such. I feel the creativity was not as developed in this third one compared to the first two. It is still worth a watch (watch the first 2 if you haven't seen them before watching this one) though and if you can get it cheap enough, I would recommend buying it.

      Here we have the 3rd and final installment in the Taken series and it is just as enjoyable as the others. Granted, my favorite is still the original, but that was because it was such a great concept that I hadn't seen before and it was executed wonderfully. This movie plays off of the same concept of Brian's family being put into danger, but over the course of the movies I've grown to really feel for this man and the relationship he has with his ex and daughter. There is action galore all throughout and it's a great ride to be on. Sit back and enjoy the ride because this is what it is, an action movie with some feelings thrown in there for good measure and an overall enjoyable experience.

      Taken Again?

      aken, as a whole, is a good series of movies. It started out as a very good movie with a new and interesting concept. The second movie was a bit of a let down for me in a lot of ways but primarily in that it got lazy. Taken 3, the movie here, is a good movie and a much better effort at telling a new story. It ups the stakes a bit with a plot that makes you want to know more but I graded it down because the main "bad" guys are not well developed. You don't feel like you know them enough to hate them and physically they just aren't dominant on the screen. Neeson is great and he carries it well.

      Taken (2006) was a great movie and provided an iconic role for Liam Neeson. The studio was quick to take advantage of its popularity by releasing a sequel- Taken 2, which I had high hopes for but it turned out to be a huge letdown. With the third movie in the franchise, I hoped the studio would redeem itself but it seems clear that both Neeson and the studio are just milking the Taken franchise for all it's worth. There is a saying.. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." Well... I allowed myself to be fooled a second time by giving Taken 3 a chance, and I won't be fooled again if there is a Taken 4.
