Taken 3


TAKEN 3 is everything you think it will be and virtually nothing more. If you loved the first two and would like to see a third variation on the same tune, chances are you'll find this an enjoyable close to the trilogy.

Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills and finds himself accused of killing his wife Lenore (Famke Janssen assuring that she never has to do another sequel). On the run, using his "particular set of skills" to track down who has framed him for her death, Mills never stops.

Forest Whitaker joins the cast, oozing a strange combination of being in on the joke and stretching to find some depth in his role as the Detective who suspects Mills is innocent but is bound by duty to bring him in.

The action scenes are very well executed, the momentum of the film is fast and furious and Neeson is very good retreading the same ground.

He seems to be very self aware that the audience wants to hear the same lines and he finds some fun ways to spin them to this edition's bad guys.

Maggie Grace returns as the most unlucky daughter on the planet and Dougray Scott adds some nice notes as Lenore's new husband who swirls around the plot lines with increasing importance.

Kudos to the stunt team and to director Olivier Megaton (Taken 2, Transporter 3) for delivering the goods and wrapping up the trilogy at a fast pace.

You don't walk into TAKEN 3 looking for a dramatically different take on what's come before and you WONT find anything too inventive here, but its quick, predictable and fun.

Neeson's particular set of skills earn a B-.
