Taken 3 is the final installment to the action movie franchise “Taken.”
Unlike the first two movies where Bryan Mills sets out to protect his ex-wife and daughter, we see Mills take on the task of protecting his name. After his ex-wife has been tragically murdered in a case that he has been framed for, Mills goes on to discover who actually murdered his wife. The movie starts out with Mills’ daughter’s birthday; he decides to get her a gift that seemingly shows how he has struggled with her growing up. His daughter, who is now in college, has a big secret that she has been hiding but we won’t find that out until later in the movie.
“Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative 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.

As the story unfolds, we find out that everything isn’t as it seems. On a mission to discover his ex-wife’s murderer, he founds out that everyone has their secrets. I won’t give away the rest of the movie but it will definitely keeping you guessing until the end. The critics reviews haven’t shown this movie to be too favorable but if you’re interested in suspense, you’ll get exactly that until the end. It’s hard to produce a movie trilogy franchise and make each movie equally as great. However, Taken 2 and Taken 3 are tied for the best out of the three. Although there isn’t as much torture and action as the first Taken movie, Taken 3 has its fair share of violence and car explosions. Not to mention, Liam Neeson’s awkward run provided a few laughs as he tried to escape his death. This third and final installment is all about the details, everything begins to add up towards the end of the movie and the hope of many movie critics is this movie was the official closing of the franchise.
