Taken 3**1/2


Ex government secret service person is framed for murdering his own ex-wife. He runs pole to post from cops to prove his innocent, find the truth and save his daughter.

The movie started with a promise but soon fizzled out as it became more and more predictable. Barring the plane scene at the end the action is also what we have become accustomed to from movies featuring super cops and ex CIA officers. Though Liem Neeson is a accomplished actor he fails to hold a stale storyline. Another bright spot in the movie is Forest Whitaker playing the police chief.

The film lacks the suspense and tension the first movie had which also dealt with a serious international issue of women abduction and trafficking. This is no more than a run of the mill action flick.
