Taken 3 review

I think this movie is the best one in the Taken trilogy. First cussing really isn't a problem if your kid knows not to. Violence may be a problem. Men are brutally beaten multiple times. One man takes a gun, sticks it in his mouth and fires. Also in the end the Russian boss gets shot multiple times in the stomach.

Great messages
Great role models

Missing details.

I always check common sense media for reviews on movies we're thinking about watching and the amount of violence/sexual content/language is in the movie. The details say that bad language is infrequent but it doesn't say there are quite a few uses of the 'F' word in the movie.

This title has:

Too much swearing
