“Taken 3” Review

When “Taken” first came to theaters in 2008, it was probably the most exciting action movie of the year. With a fresh concept and a new spin on a kidnapping story, people fell in love with Liam Nesson’s character, Brian, and his commitment to saving his daughter, Kim.

When “Taken 2” came out four years later, many people feared that Hollywood producers would just recycle the same premise of the first, and that is exactly what they did, except instead of the daughter being “taken,” the parents were this time. Although it was similar to the first, the concept was still exhilarating, and patrons were enthralled by the characters strive to survive.

Now when “Taken 3” was announced people started wondering, “well who would be taken this time?” Well the answer is, no one, instead this time Brian’s ex-wife was brutally murdered, while the two of them are out working on their past relationship problems. Nesson, Brian, is then framed for the murder after fleeing the scene, and spends the rest of the movie searching for the men who killed his ex-wife. A plot that at first glance sounds exactly like Harrison Ford in “The Fugitive.”

Although the plot was new, and it had a new direction the film did not hold up to the previous films because it was missing the same suspense element that the first two had.

The film is set in America this time, unlike the previous two, which takes away the factor that Liam is in a foreign land where he needs to study environment in order to escape. We all know that the character Brian can maneuver his way out of any situation because he has these, “particular set of skills, as he claims that aids being a calm, yet deadly killing machine”. A plot point that at this stage of the game, makes the story boring because we all know that he is going to make it out of this alive in the end.
