Review: Taken 3, 2015, dir. Olivier Megaton

“Like 2008’s Taken and 2012’s Taken 2 before it, Taken 3’s meat-and-potatoes approach to filming action is about as basic as action filmmaking can be: no fancy pants martial arts tussles, no daring stunts, no gimmicks. There’s only growling, punching, and shooting, served upon a bed of collateral damage and suffused with car chases. Thus, a no-frills film deserves a no-frills review, so without beating around the bush or getting poetic, let’s make one thing clear: Taken 3 isn’t a good movie. Against all logic, it isn’t a bad movie, either. Instead, it’s so casual and indifferent to itself it lapses into something altogether appalling.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
