Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It ends here! He's back, again, for another round of phone threats and high stakes action. In theaters now is Taken 3, bringing back Liam Neeson for a third time as Bryan Mills, father of Kim, played by Maggie Grace, the one person he will kill anyone to protect. The cast in this sequel includes Forest Whitaker and Dougray Scott, and involves a twist where Bryan is framed for the murder of his wife Lenore, played by Famke Janssen. How is it? Any better than the first two or more of the same? Once you've seen it, leave a comment with your thoughts on Megaton's Taken 3.

Editor's Note: I haven't seen the movie myself yet, but to open up the discussion anyway, here's a scathing quote from Edward Douglas' review of Taken 3 on ComingSoon.net: "Besson had something good going with the original Taken and as is often the case with far too many of his original ideas, they get diluted the more times he goes back to the same well. Taken 3 is absolute garbage and unfortunately, if it makes money, they’ve already set up what can be done in a fourth movie." Do you agree with him or did you enjoy it?
What did you think of Olivier Megaton's Taken 3? Another fantastic action film or too much?
