Taken 3: Blu-ray Review











The Movie:

The hunter becomes the hunted when Liam Neeson returns as former CIA operative Bryan Mills, who finds himself framed for the brutal murder of his ex-wife (Famke Janssen). Consumed with rage, and pursued by a savvy police inspector (Forest Whitaker), Mills must rely on his “particular set of skills” one last time to find the real killers, clear his name, and protect the only thing that matters to him now — his daughter (Maggie Grace).

Here we have another Liam Neeson action film that is actually a Taken film and doesn’t just feel like one. I have to be honest, I talk a lot of smack about Neeson films being knock offs of his Taken films but I actually enjoy ALL of them. The Taken films for instance (especially this one) catch my attention because although I know the characters and all I want to know what kind of situation that Brian Mills is going to get into and how he’s going to get out of it. Of course I waited for the famous phone calls that he makes too. This film however takes the usual formula and tweaks it a bit. It’s still a “cat and mouse chase” kind of film but to a different degree. Other than that it’s definitely the same kind of thing you would expect from a film of this franchise and it’s still a whole lot of fun. Yes, there are moments that will make you scoff a bit but it kind of comes with the territory with these movies. Either way, if you were a fan of any of the other ones then you’ll get a kick out of this one too without a doubt. 7/10

Special Features:

Deleted Scene – The scene is pretty good and offers a bit more on the background of the bad guy of the film.

Sam’s Bunker, A.K.A. The Rabbit Hole – An interesting animated feature that shows the characters’ hideout and various weapons it stores.

Taken to L.A. – A look at the various locations used in the film.

A Taken Legacy – A retrospective of sorts on the franchise.

Rated And Unrated Versions – Doesn’t offer more than a few more minutes of the film.
