In Taken, which became a global box-office sensation, distinguished actor and multi-award winner Liam Neeson, became the cinema’s newest and perhaps most unexpected action hero. At the same time, the gravity he brings to the role of Bryan Mills provides added depth to the film series, which constantly flirts with the codes of the genre. In a manner that’s original for a thriller, Mills is as much defined by his love for his family as he is for his lethal skillset.
Now in the third instalment to the franchise, Neeson returns as the ex-covert operative, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Taken 3 sees Mills 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.
