Taken 3 (2014)

Whatever happened to the B movie?  Well the answer might be contained within the Taken trilogy which took Luc Besson’s vision to the tourist traps of Europe and Turkey and reinvented Liam Neeson as an action hero. It comes to a conclusion exploiting the geography of Los Angeles with Bryan Mills promising yet again to find someone … and kill them. And this time it has ramifications close to home. It’s a logical conclusion to an entertaining existential meditation on the geopolitical fallout of Russia’s invasion of Afghanistan back in the Eighties. Really.
