Taken 3

"Taken 3" features an action-packed plot line and, considering this is the third film in the series, a pretty interesting story and mystery to solve. Liam Neeson has seemingly lost nothing in his physical arsenal as he elbows bad guys, punches them, races after them in his car, etc. The story [...]

For those of you who have seen prequels I and II, this movie picks up where II left off with some interesting twists (you're probably as surprised as I was to see Famke Janssen among the cast list).

This film, other than this comment and a few violent scenes, including a comment about not fearing God from one character, manages to entertain and is suitable for the family. It is a summer-like [...]
