Critics Review

Times of India (TOI):

Mills is not your ordinary tough guy. He possesses deadly skills thanks to his military and CIA background, but is also extremely ethical and discerning about when and how to use those skills. His prime concerns are his ex-wife and daughter. And when someone messes with that, he as we’ve seen in the previous Taken movies, he finds them and eliminates them.

DNA:

Bryan Mills (Neeson) was to meet his ex wife Lenore (Famke Janssen), armed with hot bagels. Except, by the time he reaches his apartment, she’s already dead – her throat slit by an unknown assailant.

In a recent interview while promoting the film, Liam Neeson said: “It would be insulting if someone got taken in Taken 3.” Evidently the 62-year-old star of the money-grabbing action franchise is aware of just how ridiculous these movies keep getting. After rescuing his daughter who was kidnapped by a gang of Albanian sex traffickers in Paris in 2008’s surprise hit Taken, Neeson’s character, ex-CIA operative Bryan Mills found himself chasing after abductors who’d picked up his wife during a family holiday in Istanbul in that film’s underwhelming 2012 sequel.

The Indian Express:

A retired CIA operative who comes out of hibernation only when his family is threatened was the starting point of Taken. By the third film, the daughter Kim (Grace) is still holding strong despite the beating she has taken, which is more than can be said about this film.
