Taken 3 continues the story of Bryan Mills, a man with a specific set of skills that make him a nightmare for the bad guys. And for men, especially, his story is one that resonates.
What man doesn’t want to protect his family? What man doesn’t want to see justice extracted from evildoers? What man doesn’t want to be the hero?
This is why the Taken movies have resonated with me and many others. They hit on a theme that is central to men. The desire to protect.
When Taken 3 was announced, I was stoked. The previous entries in the Taken series provided great entertainment and had me sympathizing with what Mills had to do.
Knowing part 3 was coming out was icing on the cake.
As usual, I try to look for the leadership lessons contained in current pop-culture movies. While there were leadership lessons in Taken 3, I had a much harder time picking them out.
