comScore First Taken 3 Trailer Reveals Major Plot Point Liam Neeson | The Mary Sue

The First Trailer For Taken 3 is Here and They’ve Gone and Ruined the Whole Glorious Thing

Taken 3, I am disappoint.

Ok, so the first trailer for Taken 3 ruins a major plot point, just putting that out there before I start discussing why said plot point makes me not want to bother with the film at all. Spoilers, obviously.

Are you kidding me? They kill his wife??? Uggggggggh. Let’s put aside this film not taking the idea I so smartly whipped up of the daughter being a trained badass this time around—you’re just going to get rid of awesome Famke Janssen too? Ugh. Here’s the official synopsis.

Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose 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.

Blah, blah, in theaters January 9, 2015.
