Fans who have followed Taken through the past two movies can attest to the adventure and thrill in watching them as well as the concept of someone getting kidnapped, but Liam Neeson said that if another person was taken, he wouldn't have done the third movie.
Though fans would expect that someone would get kidnapped in the third movie of the series, Liam Neeson told Radio Times on Tuesday that it wasn't even a possibility.
"I said the second one wouldn't happen and I said I wouldn't do a third one if someone got taken," Neeson said.
Not only was he sick of the storyline, he said it was insulting: "It's insulting to an audience as well as me."
Rather than Neeson trying to save someone who has been taken away, he is running from the police, CIA and FBI as he is framed for his ex-wife, Lenore's, murder. Though they changed the storyline, Neeson still has some complaints.
"I hate trailers... there's no mystery anymore," he said.
Neeson also expressed that he has heard some negative feedback on the redundancy of the movies.
"Just the other day I got a letter from a school teacher in Texas who had tried to take sixty students to Europe. The families of forty of them got the kids out of it because they had seen Taken 2. Then this year she wanted to take twenty of them and the parents all said, 'No, because we've seen that movie!'"
Regardless, the Taken movies remain wildly popular and this is supposed to be the final movie. It has even been officially subtitled It Ends Here.
Taken 3 premieres on January 9, 2015. Watch the official trailer below.
