Lee Weathers (played by Kate Mara) is a corporate risk assessment analyst, which doesn’t sound a promising job for an action thriller until you realise that this is Hollywood, where considerable latitude to is given to job descriptions in big companies. She is tasked by her boss (played by Brian Cox) to investigate unsettling events at an isolated scientific laboratory where Dr Simon Ziegler (Toby Jones) and Dr Lui Cheng (Michelle Yeoh) and running an experiment into creating artificial life.
I remember Liam Neeson saying a couple of years ago: ‘Taken 3? I don’t think there’ll be a Taken 3. She can’t get taken again, that’s just bad parenting’. But Taken 3 did happen. Kim does get taken again. And it is bad parenting indeed.
It is also a bad movie unfortunately.
