My Life Is Cool

That said, even though story and characters are both underserved, certain fans of the franchise will still be tempted to see Movie - if for no other reason than to see Neeson brawl with criminals (and cops) onscreen. Watch American Sniper Online

Yet, more than either proceeding film, the latest chapter relies heavily on choppy footage and fight choreography, as well as bland automobile carnage to meet its action quota – with a waterboarding scene peppered in to remind moviegoers that Mills is still a brutish antihero in place of nuanced drama. Watch Jupiter Ascending Online

In venturing away from the franchise’s “taken” gimmick, the Movie filmmakers lost sight of nearly everything that made the first film a memorable action-thriller – most notably watching Mills navigate the line between good guy and merciless killing machine. Watch Fifty Shades of Grey Online

What’s left is a generic chase movie that, if it wasn’t attached to the Taken brand, would have been a completely forgettable entry in Neeson’s growing list of aging-action hero filmography (Non-Stop and Unknown, among others). Watch 50 Shades of Grey Online

Most of the necessary pieces are present, and Mills is still disturbingly calm in the face of danger, but every aspect of Movie (from the performances, the story, and the action) is uninspired – paling in comparison to Morel’s Taken and countless superior quality films that inspired the franchise.

It’s been said before but not every great movie can maintain an equally great movie franchise. Watch The SpongeBob Movie Sponge Out of Water Online

We currently live in the age of the sequel. Sometimes that’s a good thing. The likes of Before Midnight and Toy Story 3 have proven that you can gloriously extend a franchise’s world and its characters with each additional installment. Watch McFarland USA Online

But then there are those sequels that try and stretch an original film’s idea, and only end up making a tepid imitation. watch Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Online

Taken 2 did just that to Taken, and now Movie has arrived and sucked the remaining good will and joy from the 2008 action thriller, cementing the franchise’s status as plain old laughable in the process. Watch The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Online

Which is a shame, because lest we forget that Taken was a rollicking rollercoaster of impressively slick action when it originally hit cinemas. Watch The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Online

It had nothing else on its mind other than being brainless fun, and despite being as predictable as a sunrise, it delivered what it intended in a brisk, satisfying manner. Watch Seventh Son Online
