Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose long awaited reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his “particular set of skills,” to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.
Not being a proper sequel (no one is actually being taken) is awkward. Imagine Eddie Murphy as a chef in Beverly Hills Cop 4…
The plot is good but quite expected. The fight scenes are standard, nothing original. I expected more fight scenes and gadget usage by Brian Mills. I didn’t like the bits of humor in the film, for example a cop eavesdropping Kim in university and not appreciating the lecture. I liked Lenny – it’s a shame she is off in case there will be Taken 4 (you never know…)
Actor I enjoyed the most in this film: Forest Whitaker. Actor I enjoyed the least in this film: Maggie Grace.
Summary: good action film, worth watching.
