Bryan Mills is back. After having his daughter taken in the first film, he and his wife being taken in the second, he is now accused of a vicious murder that he never committed.
Taken 3 takes the serious in a different direction. and thankfully avoids the over-the-top violence of the previous film, rather going for the more relevant action of the first film. For those who take note, the cinematography is not the best, but, you’re likely to be too wrapped up in Bryan keeping ahead of those chasing him, both good and bad guys.
Regulars are back, with Famke Jansen and Maggie Grace, with newcomer Forest Whittaker.
Taken 3 is a great escape, and a thrill ride, for audiences. It’s action packed, while not being overly violent. A good story to carry the on-screen action, and of course, Liam Neeson delivers his usual “A game”.
Taken 3 opens 16 January in South African cinemas, and is sure to thrill viewers.
