Trivia

In the original Taken (2008), Bryan Mills tells the kidnappers on the phone exactly what he will do and what the kidnappers are up against to which they reply "Good luck".

Goofs

Stuart calls the airport from his car and says he'll be there in 15 minutes. The only way someone could get from downtown L.A. to Santa Monica in 15 minutes would be via teleportation. Moments later, Bryan turns onto the northbound 110, which would send him in the opposite direction from Santa Monica, toward Pasadena. See more »

Quotes

Jimy: Every single day, she goes to the same exact store, right off campus, every morning before class and gets the same peach yogurt drink.
Kim Mills: Stop.
Jimy: The fourth one from the back. Not the fifth one, not the third one, right? The fourth one, you know, will stay cold, but not too cold. That way, when she's drinking it as a snack in between classes...
Bryan Mills: It's still cold. I know I would do exactly the same thing.
Kim Mills: Yeah, the OCD gene.

"It ends here" is good advice
11 January 2015 | by rogerdarlingtonSee all my reviews

In the beginning, former special forces expert Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) found that his daughter was taken in Paris while, in the sequel, he himself was taken in Istanbul. Clearly Neeson took a bit of persuading to play the role a third time, but it would appear that three factors persuaded him: first, he didn't want to do any travelling this time (so all the shooting -in both senses of the word - is in the overly-familiar Los Angeles where he goes "down the rabbit hole"); second, apparently he didn't think anyone should be taken this time (and the writers obeyed the injunction until near the end when they just couldn't resist any more); and third, he wanted the money.

This is a movie which divides the critics and the public: the former have been very condescending about it but the later enjoy Mills using his special skills again and again (and you can't really blame them). The bad guys here are (mostly) Russians who have terrible accents and awful clothes (especially underwear), but it is always a pleasure to see Forest Whitaker (an intelligent member of the LAPD who knows the significance of a warm bagel). The tag line in the advertisements for "Taken 3" is "It ends here" and I think that would be a sensible decision (although I wouldn't guarantee it).
