Excerpt: La tercera aventura de Bryan Mills, el asesino que trata de ser buen padre y ex-esposo enrollado, baja el nivel aún más que su hermana previa. Aburrida, mal presentada, con una edición demencial y un reparto en modo ahorro de energía. Luc Besson en horas bajas.
Excerpt: They’ve run out of ideas and the threequel is tired and tiresome – an unimaginative affair from beginning to end, even to the point of adding yet more crazed Russian gangsters, surely the most overused cliché of modern gangster movies.
Excerpt: Old habits die hard in “Taken 3,” which doesn’t welcome a “Taken 4” but isn’t unwatchable, either. Besides, when’s the last time you saw a movie make hot bagels an important plot point that would have cleared up everything in the plot?
Excerpt: Liam Neeson’s third outing as over-protective family man Bryan Mills sees him on the run for murder after his ex-wife (Famke Janssen) turns up dead in his apartment. Forest Whitaker heads the investigation, which soon enough uncovers the involvement of nasty Russian gangsters, but Olivier Megaton’s uneven, anaemic direction ensures Taken 3 fails again to recapture the magic of the original.
Excerpt: Nothing makes a lick of sense, with a hackneyed script that so often makes leaps of logic and jumps to conclusions to the point where the suspension of disbelief snaps in half, and it doesn’t have the effective action-packed goods to work in spite of that. It once again proves that the whole Taken saga should have retired after its first assignment.
Excerpt: Liam Neeson is back in action as retired ex-covert operative Bryan Mills in Taken 3, a preposterous but entertaining sequel that tops the previous outing but fails to come anywhere close to 2008’s lean and well-executed original.
Excerpt: Olivier Megaton regressa à saga sem a convicção da primeira sequela e abusa na procura do líquido (sangue) quando falta algo sólido. Os velhos actores já acomodados aos papéis estão em modo automático, Forest Whitaker dá alguma frescura, mas não chega para entusiasmar.
