    It's a testament to Neeson's startling charisma as an action star that for all its storytelling flaws, large swaths of Taken 3 remain wildly entertaining.

  • Tom Huddleston

    Taken 3 scores over its predecessor on almost every level: the stakes are higher, the LA locations are nicely photographed and, best of all, there’s an actual plot, with twists and everything.

  • Amy Nicholson

    Taken 3 isn't brilliant, but it's a hell of a lot of dumb, head-smacking fun.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The film dutifully cleaves to the contours of a well-established and viscerally satisfying formula.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    This is a pretty good action movie with the added kick of Liam Neeson in the lead role.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Taken 3 is exactly what one might anticipate from an unnecessary sequel in a mediocre franchise.

  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    So what, exactly, is wrong with Taken 3? A lot of things, most of which can be attributed to the fact that director Olivier Megaton—who also helmed Taken 2—couldn’t mount an action scene if his life depended on it.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Taken 3 is formula filmmaking at its most formulaic, a film that exists only because it makes sense financially.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Liam Neeson cuts a rather sorry figure in what’s less a final flourish for the series than a prolonged death rattle.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Ali Plumb

    Megaton’s choppy editing barely disguises his star’s hatred of running, while a brutal 12A neutering lessens what limited fun remains in seeing Oscar Schindler creakily throw a Russian bad ‘un into some supermarket shelves.

    Empire Full Review
  • Clarence Tsui

    Replacing the first two films' simplistic, man-on-the-run premise with a stuttering plot comparatively light on action and stuffed with red herrings and inconsequential characters... Besson's team has signed off the trilogy with a whimper rather than the kind of unfettered bang delivered by the first two films.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    While this third installment offers a jot more humor (mostly unintentional), the action scenes are disjointed, badly staged and mind-numbing.

    ​I’ll tell you what got Taken. A hundred and twelve minutes of my life got Taken.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Sheila O'Malley

    It's just a frantic, flash-cutting frenzy. Even the slower, more intimate family scenes feature so many swooping-up-from-below shots and so many sudden inserts that moments (emotional or physical) are never given a chance to land. Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    Olivier Megaton (he helmed "Taken 2") starts things off at a sluggish pace and never picks up speed. Even the action scenes, which often are filmed in jittery fashion, don't generate thrills.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Even Neeson can’t rescue this halfhearted shrug of a movie.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Maggie Lee

    A mind-numbing, crash-bang misfire that abandons chic European capitals for the character’s own backyard.

    Variety Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Sadly, the sequel isn't even so bad as to be memorable. Instead, it's vaporous, not even possessing the qualities indicating that anyone involved cared about any detail of the film.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Mills is so clever, he has the cops utterly outfoxed. But he can’t guess where this story is leading as early as the audience does — which is almost instantly.

    Nothing gets taken here except your ticket money.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    This time around the dramatics and dialogue are so laugh-out-loud funny that if there is a "4" — despite the promises that "3" is the final chapter — maybe it should be a straight-out satire.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Mr. Megaton’s direction of action sequences borders on atrocious. Ragged camerawork and editing ruin freeway car chases and hand-to-hand combat alike.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Taken 3 is bad enough that it may just end it.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It’s difficult to know what subtitle to give this. Taken 3: Not Again, or Taken 3: Seriously? or Taken 3: This Is Getting a Bit Much Frankly.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Each individual moment in the film barely seems to be on speaking terms with the rest.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Audiences the world over made Neeson an action star when they fell in love with his “particular set of skills” in the first “Taken,” but this third go-round finds both cast and crew opting not to exercise any of them. Everyone involved seems to be determined to quash anyone’s interest in a fourth chapter.

    Empowerment porn for those who long for the Cold War's clarity of purpose and American dominance in this murky age of terror.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Even Liam Neeson seems bored by the imbecilic, repetitive “Taken 3,” an action movie no one was clamoring for and no one will enjoy.

    Be warned, sequel fanboys: This thing sucks!

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • William Goss

    There isn’t even a moment amid the running and gunning as insipidly inspired as the last film’s idea of using grenade-tossing triangulation to save the day.
