Ugh, do we really have to do this again?
So Liam Neeson is doing Taken 3 (marketed as Tak3n because of f*cking course it is), which just seems ill-advised. I mean, he defended his family twice already, and then he fought those wolves, and then didn’t he fight an airplane or something? And then he kind of got back on track with the solid A Walk Among The Tombstones.
And now this. Go ahead and watch, it’s more punchy-kicky-shooty, with a healthy dose of phone calls. Lord, does the Taken franchise love to show this man talking on the phone. All he does is kick ass and use up minutes. And glower. Neeson gives good glower.
Anyway, this time, someone he loves is murdered. Maggie Grace is there, looking worried and/or scared, like Maggie Grace does. Forrest Whitaker is also there, which makes me really sad. It comes out on January 9th, so you know it’s gonna be good. That’s when all the best stuff comes out.
