Taken again?

When I saw that they were coming out with a Take 3, I thought it was a joke. Sure it’s fun to see great special effects and Liam Neeson kicking butt and taking names but come on, a third movie is way more than unnecessary.

The first one was entertaining but nothing we hadn’t seen before. My biggest critique of the first two is Maggie Grace, the actress who places Neeson’s daughter, is clearly not a teenager.

I mean that in no disrespect whatsoever. Grace is an extremely talented actress and an attractive woman, a 31-year old woman, not a 17 year old high school girl. She by no means looks old and I’d say she could easily pass for 23, maybe 22, but not 17.

Also, as entertaining as the first one was, it was extremely predictable and this trailer looks to be similar in that regard.

Aside from that, the plot is the same and we get the point already. In the first movie, his daughter gets kidnapped. In the second movie, his ex-wife and daughter get kidnapped. Really?

Just because a movie was good doesn’t mean there should be a sequel. In fact, it’s quite the contrary. Movie makers should have the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it mentality.” Who knows, maybe a third movie is the attempt to fix what they broke after trying to fix it after the second movie.

Let’s hope it really does end here, finally.
