Are you a fan of thrillers? If you are, then you are going to love it. Here I have come up with one of the best spine-chilling thrillers that will blow your mind, that is “Taken 4”.
Do you know there is one crazy thing about Taken 4?
It is that in all three parts of the movie 1, 2 and 3, either daughter or someone in the family of Bryan Mills, a former CIA operative, gets kidnapped.
I think this is hilarious, but at the same time, it is concerning, right?

Taken 2 & 3 are sequels for Taken. Taken 1, 2 &3 are well received by the audience, and it has done great at the box-office as well.
Bryan is a former CIA agent who relocated to California to be closer to Kim, his daughter. Kim lives with her mother Lenore and her millionaire stepfather Stuart in the same house. Kim persuades her sceptical father to let her go to Paris with her friend Amanda. But when Bryan says bye to them at the airport, he gets to know that Kim lied to him. The girls planned to follow U2 While they were on their tour.
But we all know the harsh reality about how much our parents suffer while giving us a good upbringing. Every parent goes through a tough time when their kids are in their teenage years. The same struggle of parents has been shown in this movie.
When the ladies arrive in Paris, they take a taxi with a man named Peter, and Amanda casually mentions that they are alone in the city. Using this information, an Albanian gang of human traffickers kidnaps the girls.
In the coming section of the movie, you will see the journey of both the girls didn’t come out the way they wanted it to be.
Upon arriving at Amanda’s apartment, Amanda is kidnapped, and as Kim answer’s Bryan’s phone call, she is being dragged out from hiding. But being the daughter of a CIA, she acts smartly by telling the description of the abductor on the phone. On the other side, Bryan hears breathing on the phone and gives two conditions to the kidnapper: either release her daughter and no action will be taken against the kidnapper or failing to do so may lead to their death. Listening to this, the only reply Bryan got was “good Luck”.

On the show called “The late show”, Neeson had said that there will be no “Taken 4”.
Neeson discussed his holiday plans, his excellent acting history, and the possibility of a Taken 4 sequel during a visit on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday. “Is there any chance of a fourth?” Colbert inquired.
“No, there isn’t. There are only so many times your daughter can be kidnapped,” Neeson jokes, before adding his take on a fourth film, “Actually, if we have another, it will be, ‘Please, can you take my daughter?’”
Another reason that makes the argument of canceling Taken 4 more strong is the earning that Taken 2 and Taken 3 achieved.
Taken 2 earn $139,854,287 from Domestic and $236,298,168 from International
Talking about Taken 3 earned $89,256,424 from Domestic and $ 237,222, 717 from international
Seeing such a gap in Taken 2 and Taken 3, we can infer that fans of Taken should not expect Taken 4.
Furthermore, the second and third films received mostly negative reviews, with some identifying the artificial storylines of those latter parts as major flaws. While an action franchise like Taken doesn’t strictly rely on positive reviews from reviewers to stay afloat, when the third film only receives a 12 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, it certainly casts doubt on the likelihood of future releases.
Taken, Taken 2 & taken 3 were released in 2008, 2012, and 2014 respectively. It has been a long while since the release of Taken 3 and there is no official statement yet, apart from Liam’s interview statement. So, maybe there will be no Taken 4.
