Taken 3

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.

Spoiler Warning: We strongly urge everyone to actually see the film before reading ahead, as there may be spoilers below. We also encourage all commenters to keep major spoilers from the film to a minimum, if possible. However, this is an open discussion from this point on! Beware of spoilers, don't ruin this movie!

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?
We will remove any comments that indicate you have not seen the movie, as this area is meant to discuss the film only once you have seen it and can talk about your thoughts. Please keep the comments civilized!

  • If it weren't for this website, I don't think I would've been aware that the movie premiered today.

      Lol.. I thought the exact same thing when I saw the "Sound off.."
  • tyban81
    Much better than the 2nd one. Not even remotely as good as the first. Entertaining atleast.
    • Well at least thats good to hear. U cant really beat the first one anyways because it was just brand new and no one had ever seen Liam kick ass before.
  • Lagoya
    Pretty standard action film, predictable and average in every way, (I fell asleep half way through in the cinema so I missed about 15 mins in the middle). I haven't seen the second one but it's no where near as good as the first.
  • Chris Amaya
    It was ok. Definitely better than 2 but the first one was the best. They should have stopped after the first one. What is it with Megaton and his obsession with the shaky cam?
  • Some Guy
    The fact that you'd even have to ask proves this site is a joke. I guess it's run by brainless morons who watch too many comic book movies and can't even tell how awful a film is.
    • TK
      The fact that you up voted yourself says a lot about how serious anyone should take your comment.
    • Xerxexx
      look at this fucking guy.
    • Adam Cloud
      Agreed. I mean come on, a movie site that asks people what their opinions of movies are? You kidding me? What's next, restaurant's asking for opinions on their food? Dark days are surely ahead for earth...

      Could we just drop the banhammer on this guy already please.
