Ex-government operative Bryan Mills is accused of a ruthless murder he never committed or witnessed. As he is tracked and pursued, Mills brings out his particular set of skills to find the true killer and clear his name.
Mobster and hit man Jimmy Conlon has one night to figure out where his loyalties lie: with his estranged son, Mike, whose life is in danger, or his longtime best friend, mob boss Shawn Maguire, who wants Mike to pay for the death of his own son.
Disgraced Secret Service agent (and former presidential guard) Mike Banning finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack; using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President from his kidnappers.
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.Written by

Sam Spruell (Oleg Malinkov) and Liam Neeson (Bryan Mills) have played together in two films. One was this film, and K-19: The Widowmaker (2002), where Liam Neeson was a Captain on the K19 Sub in Russia during the Cold War, and Sam Spruell was a crew member aboard. See more »
In the police station, signs misspell Police Department as "Police Departement," using the French spelling of the word. See more »
I am very pleased to know that's at last the final chapter of this juicy, fancy crap trilogy. Product one more time of Europacorp crap factory. Luc Besson's crap factory. Except for jewels such as THREE BURIALS or HOMESMAN, pure masterpieces. So, back to this one, I'd begin to say that I prefer WID CARD, that I watched last week. It was a simple B picture without any pretension, except the one to entertain, nothing else. But TAKEN 3, this big, fancy juicy crap cost at least one hundred and fifty millions dollars and that remains predictable from the very beginning. Action sequences are killers not for the characters but for the audiences. I nearly left the theatre. I was through only after ten minutes. I did not want to disturb the people sitting around me, so I stayed. But I thought all long this crap that I wouldn't make it.
Get away from this at all costs, like a plague. Unless you're a big, a die hard fan of Liam Neeson. OK, he's very fit for his age. But that's all. I highly preferred Denzell Washington in EQUALIZER, back in October. But Antoine Fuqua is not Olivier Megaton.
