Taken 3 – a review

Taken 3 (stylized as TAK3N) is a 2014 French action thriller … the third and final installment in the Taken trilogy, and the sequel to the 2008 film Taken and the 2012 film Taken 2. The film stars Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen and Forest Whitaker. …

Despite being largely panned by critics, the film was a box office success, grossing over $289 million.

OK, I’m a sucker for Liam Neeson. That must be it. The film is weak.

Liam’s fight scenes are the most unrealistic since 1960s TV, but I still enjoyed this pic.

Neeson is a critic of the proliferation of firearms in the US and has made calls for gun control. In January 2015, he repeated his views, calling US gun laws a “disgrace” in an interview with Dubai newspaper Gulf News when replying to a question about the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris earlier that month.

One thought on “Taken 3 – a review”

  1. Isn’t it a little hypocritical of Liam Neeson to be using firearms to make a living when he is adamantly against people like his character being able to keep and bear arms?

    He’s another actor whose hypocrisy has convinced me not to support — sorry but I’ll not be watching his movies. Instead I’ll probably put that money toward ammunition or another firearm.
