The Bad: The plot twists, though mild, were a tad bit predictable. (But who cares, you want to see Liam kick butt anyway) Forest Whitaker's character seemed a little too obvious, in my opinion. Maybe I paid too much attention to it, but I thought it was just overly cliche' that he kept playing with a random chess piece. (Where did he even get that from??) It just seemed like the director kept whispering really loudly to the audience, "Hey...HEYYY!!! Did you see that? Forest and Liam are playing a game of chess in this movie! It's so symbolic!".
The Reason: More than likely, you're interested in watching this movie because you loved Taken but maybe didn't really enjoy Taken 2 so much. Well I'm here to tell you that this installment made up for Taken 2. I don't think I can say it's better than Taken 1, but if they never made a Taken 2, Taken 3 would've made a much better sequel. Anyway, if you're in the mood for a good action film, by all means don't hesitate to watch this.
The Rating: 7.5/10
