Wonderful character development!
Waste of time
Each character in this movie — down to the smallest one — is an individual rather than a type, prone to spontaneous changes of mood and sometimes amusing outbursts of pettiness or ill humor.
After all the excitement of the first two films one might think the Bryon Mills and those close to him deserved a break but inevitably they are caught up in further mayhem. Bryon's ex-wife is murdered in his apartment and moments after he finds her the police arrive and assume he is the killer. Bryon manages to escape from their custody and sets about finding the real killers. The police are one step behind him and as he closes in on the killers he finds himself targeted by them too if that wasn't enough he is concerned that they may also target his daughter.If you just want lots of mindless action then you could do a lot worse than this; there are numerous fight scenes, shootouts, car chases and explosions. Despite that there isn't the sense of threat that one might expect Bryon gets out of apparently unsurvivable incidents more than once; at one point he crashes his car down an elevator shaft and somehow survives. There are some twists which aren't bad. The ending is a little cliché Mills may have proved his innocence in the murder of his wife but would he really be allowed to walk free after kidnapping police officers and causing serious, possibly fatal, mayhem on the freeway?! The silliness is somewhat salvaged by Liam Neeson's fine performance as Mills. The rest of the cast is solid enough. Overall this isn't a must see but if you want some brain in neutral action you could do worse.
If you thought Taken 2 was bad, try this one.The movie literally opens with the murder of a guy WE DON'T KNOW, committed by a guy WE DON'T KNOW. After that some shots of Mills settling into life, then stuff happens, and it's all really confusing.The real problem with this is the director has taken it too far. Some things are only good in small doses and Taken is one of them. How many times can you seriously do this? The only good part is Liam Neeson and even he looks tired of this. The reveal that the new boyfriend is the murderer seems forced, and the sniper guy doesn't even make sense, and his character seems forced and is completely pointless. You could have written him out of the story and it wouldn't make a difference. It's horrid.
Beautifully shot and amazingly mind stimulating. Never a dull moment. This movie touches on a subject many are afraid to talk about. A topic that should be at top of the list of importance not only in America, but, unfortunately everywhere. Doesn't hide behind smoke screens, yet, has the effect of exposing the truth without having to guide you to it. Taken is a movie that everyone should see with an open eye.
Despite the fact that I was wary about seeing this movie based on word-of-mouth and reviews, I decided to give it a try because its immediate predecessor—Taken 2—had still held my interest. Though I wasn't expecting anything like the spectacular original, I was hoping that "Taken 3" would bring closure (as advertised) to such an interesting concept.For a basic plot summary (minor spoilers nothing not seen in the trailer), "Taken 3" sees Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) trying to reconcile his relationship with ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen), what with Kim (Maggie Grace) now being off on her own at college. When a meeting between the ex-lovers ends up with "Lenny" dead, however, Bryan is framed for the murder and must flee. On his tail is Detective Frank Dotzler (Forest Whitaker).The main, glaring problem with this film is as simple as it is obvious: In this trilogy, there really was only one excellent story to tell. In the first Taken, a unique plot is bolstered by very well- created characters. That EXACT same tact is used to create a carbon-copy sequel with "Taken 2". That flick still manages to be mildly entertaining because the characters are so strong. However, that well couldn't be gone back to a third time and have been believe-able. So, it goes off course and manages to get even worse. One could argue that only a exercise in screen writing perfection could have made this enjoyable. It was just running on fumes.Perhaps the most disappointing part of the experience, though, is that the trailer/advertising for the film depicts much more background on the Bryan Mills character. That is why I thought the movie might have some redeeming value, but it was not to be. That was obviously a ruse, as it doesn't come up in the film at all.It is also a bit disheartening to see the main actors of the piece try so hard but have so little to work with. The entire project is beneath Whitaker, Neeson is just a carbon-copy, and Grace absolutely acts her heart out in and provides really the only great scenes of the whole experience. I'm surprised she has not received more major roles in Hollywood after this franchise & LOST, as she is a great actress.Overall, "Taken 3" managed to suck every last penny out of a franchise built on a single story. In the future, when I recommend "Taken" to people, I probably won't even mention the two sequels (if maybe just to discourage their being watched). They just do not serve a purpose besides butts in theater seats.
