Ex-covert operative Bryan Mills’ 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.
I would never try to claim that Taken 2 was a good movie, but I was one of the few people who wasn’t completely disappointed by it. I mean, come on, any sequel to a flash-in-the-pan success like Taken was bound to be pretty stupid, and really, as long as Liam Neeson kicks some ass in it and someone gets “taken,” it lives up to my expectations for a Taken follow-up. But now we have Taken 3, or Tak3n, in which no one gets “taken,” but Neeson continues to kick ass. So that’s really only 50% of the requirements for a Taken film – not a good sign. But an even worse sign is the January release date.
Tak3n comes out January 9, 2015.
