Bryan Mills is back in Taken 3 (or Tak3n as the marketing will tell you), a film which claims to be the final instalment in Liam Neeson’s retirement fund.
Here’s the official synopsis for the Luc Besson produced actioner which sees Neeson score a $20 million payday for kicking ass and being Irish:
‘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.’
This looks like a vast improvement over Taken 2, a film which was apparently made by people who had no idea what made the first film work.
