It probably comes as no surprise to most of you that the up and coming Taken movie will likely conclude the Taken franchise. Following suit from other multimillion dollar film series such as The Hangover, the third film will probably be the last.
The Taken 3 plot will skip to a different beat to that of the first two films, the most significant change seen in the Taken 3 Plot is the fact that no one will be taken. Instead we’ll see the third movie wrapping up the lose ends left by the first two movies.
Its no secret that Taken was never intended to be more than a one hit wonder, the original movie was written as a stand alone story, without the need to follow up with a equal, but the high success of the first movie, and overwhelming popularity of ex CIA man Bryan Mills led the original writing duo to expand on the original Taken plot.
The natural expansion saw Bryan Mills deal with the repercussions of his actions in the first movie – taking on Albanian criminals whose son was killed by Mills during his mission to save his daughters life. Whilst Taken 2 did a great job in expanding on the story of the first film, many have asked (and rightly so) how much more story there is left to tell in Taken 3.
Ultimately, Taken 2 brings Brian to a state where his focus is really now about building bridges with his family, and trying to forget the past. With Taken 3, the focus will almost certainly be in this area, whilst the thriller will still keep audiences on their toes, the objective of the third and final story is to bring this particular arc of Mills life to a more satisfying conclusion.
Whilst we still can’t give away the juiciest parts of the Taken 3 plot, we’re confident it’ll thrill audiences in no small part due to it’s originality and the exceptional cast lead by Liam Neeson.
