Taken 3 (film review)

Taken 3 staring Liam Neeson and Forest Whitaker.

" IMDb  Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose long awaited reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his "particular set of skills," to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now - his daughter"

The film is action from the start, lot of fights, lots of shootouts and a few good car chases thrown in for good measure.
The action is well done and Neeson works well as the tough guy (this is the man who should have played Jack Reacher not Tom Cruise)  This isn't a film you'll doze off in.

A few small niggles for me, yet again the hero never gets hit despite thousands of bullets shot at him, that and the killer was all too obvious from early on, so don't expect to be kept guessing untill the end.

Waynes rating 8/10  well worth a watch on the big screen.
