Taken 3 (2015)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Hampered by toothless PG-13 action sequences, incoherent direction, and a hackneyed plot, Taken 3 serves as a clear signal that it's well past time to retire this franchise.

Movie Info

Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his "particular set of skills," to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now - his daughter. (C) Fox

Critic Reviews for Taken 3

All Critics (105) | Top Critics (24)

Forest Whitaker turns in one of his sleepiest performances; no one else seems to be trying very hard either, yet director Olivier Megaton delivers some good chases, fist fights, and shots of Neeson looking glum.

A movie that thinks the way to earn our knuckle-biting is to be as dull as hell for 35 minutes, then send a giant shipping container hurtling along the interstate. But you yawn through that, too.

Nothing gets taken here except your ticket money.

All you need to know about Taken 3 is that Liam Neeson survives an explosive car crash - twice.

The logy screenplay, by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, sags under head-clutchingly banal dramatic scenes. Only Mr. Neeson's appeal somehow survives unscathed, perhaps the most impressive stunt of all.

Audience Reviews for Taken 3

Besson and Megaton have apparently decided that they could come up with any crap to justify another sequel, and so they don't mind insulting our intelligence with a stupid plot full of ridiculous contrivances and awful, chopped-up editing that doesn't let us see anything.

We can only pray that this is the final installment. It is surprising that Kim can even walk out the door without having a mental breakdown!

The only redeeming factor for a 'Taken' film at this point should be the action, but the frenzied editing does not even let you enjoy that.
