Watch: The Entire ‘Taken’ Trilogy in 90 Seconds Is Way More Brutal Than the Original
This video contains a very particular set of thrills.
“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.”
It’s with these words that Liam Neeson launched his one-man war against the Albanian emigre population of Paris in 2008’s now-legendary Taken. The trilogy didn’t just deliver some blood-spattered thrills to theatergoers and help reinvent Neeson as an action hero, but gave us a new type of densely-packed action flick. No extraneous dialogue, no drawn-out subplots: Brian Mills has a very particular set of skills, and those skills are used to murder hired thugs and human traffickers without a wasted moment.
If you didn’t think the Taken trilogy could be more brutal, the folks from BurgerFiction are here to blow your mind. The YouTubers spliced together every essential moment from all three movies into 90 seconds of pure chaos. Enjoy, and remember: “At some point this is just bad parenting.”
