The Taken series is the new Hangover films, they just never going to stop.
The story is about Bryan Mills, whose 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 can't believe a good film like the first Taken then get squeal's that can turn into a train wreck of a cash grab. I remembered in the first film how brutal the fight scenes where and that's due to the sound in the movie. Every punch sounds rock hard and you can hear all the bones breaking in they bodies, but then Olivier Megaton took the directors chair and I wish he haven't, because Taken 2 was terrible and so was this one.
Olivier Megaton should just stop directing action films. He can't do them right and he's direction for action always feels badly edited and sloppy paste. I thought he learned his lesson by now since everybody talked about how crappy the action was in the second film, but nope, he has learnt anything from his first mistakes.
The action in this movie is some of the worst action I've so far this year. It's the quick cut editing so that means you can't see a damn thing when a action scene comes on. Quick cut after quick cut, it's just painful to watch. How I am I suppose to enjoy the action when most of the time I can't see it and I would blame it on the editing which is just shockingly bad, I mean wow.
The only good thing in this movie: Liam Neeson in this movie is just playing the basic Liam Neeson, once again. He doesn't do terrible job in this film but I can tell that he doesn't want to be in this, it's all about the money to him. The other cast has well don't do a bad performance.
But overall Taken 3 is just a lazily edited, horrible directed and poorly executed action film with zone brain shells and more dumbness to it.
