Taken 3 Movie Review

Image by www.impawards.com
The Good: Liam Neeson hasn't lost a step. He's still just as dangerous as before, except this time this film did a good job at highlighting his strategic abilities much more than just his Bourne Identity fighting style. It was nice to see how he challenged his "particular set of skills" against that of the police in an effort to save his daughter. There's plenty of action and, unlike the previous Taken films, there are better suspenseful car chase scenes. Thankfully the story is more of a loose continuation from the last movie, so you don't have to worry about the exact same story line being repeated. There are a few plot twists thrown in towards the end as well.

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
