Taken 3 is exactly what one might anticipate from an unnecessary sequel in a mediocre franchise.
January 9, 2015
The concept is lame, and the execution is lame, too. The more the film advances, the less we care about the plot - or anything that happens to anybody, really.
January 9, 2015
The action sequences are not only visually confusing, but tension free.
January 9, 2015
Mgaton and editors Audrey Simonaud and Nicolas Trembasiewicz take every fist-fight, shoot-out and highway chase and shred them into milliseconds of mismatched visual information like something out of a latter-day Godard movie.

What is laughable here is the extraordinarily clunky way in which the screenplay (co-written by the film's producer Luc Besson) combines family melodrama with random chases and fights.
January 8, 2015
With his third kidnapping caper, Taken 3, Liam Neeson takes self-parody to new lows and the result is hysterically, enjoyably bad.

It's difficult to know what subtitle to give this. Taken 3: Not Again, or Taken 3: Seriously? or Taken 3: This Is Getting a Bit Much Frankly.

No obvious connection to Takens passim other than its focus on a middle-aged man who'll punch or shoot anyone with a Slavic accent.

'Taken 3' scores over its predecessor on almost every level: the stakes are higher, the LA locations are nicely photographed and, best of all, there's an actual plot, with twists and everything.

Besson's team has signed off the trilogy with a whimper rather than the kind of unfettered bang delivered by the first two films.
December 31, 2014
The third and presumably final installment of the Liam Neeson action franchise is a mind-numbing, crash-bang misfire.
