The movie was just fantastic, you can see how much he cares about saving her and how he just tells her straight out what's going to happen, I think he fit the character perfectly and the voice he uses is jut great, I recommend this to anyone and everyone.

"Taken" by Yojimbo

A retired ex-secret serviceman is trying to make amends with his estranged daughter when she is kidnapped in Paris by white slave traders. Taken is on paper a very straightforward, almost tired sounding idea that you've heard a thousand times before. It's an unpretentious action thriller that plays out like a revenge story, except there is a goal outside of vengeance; a father's unstoppable wish to protect his daughter from harm. The first 30 minutes is the usual predictable and slightly clumsy exposition, but once Neeson springs into action it becomes an altogether different beast. Neeson is not the kind of action hero who looks like he'd shy from a fight for the fear of mussing his hair. Instead we get an ageing Irish terminator cutting a swathe through the kind of evil bastards even a ...

A truly kick ass action move!

Bryan (Liam Neeson) is now a former special agent whose daughter lives with his ex-wife and her current husband, who is apparently very rich. Despite his better judgment, he gives consent for his 17 year-old daughter to go to Paris with a friend. However all his "paranoia" is justified when his daughter calls him during an abduction by some unknown men. Using his contacts, Bryan learns of an Albanian group specializing in kidnapping young women into sex slavery and estimates he has 96 hours maximum before she is drugged beyond redemption and sold into prostitution. Calling on a lifetime of skills, Bryan goes to Paris to track down those responsible destroying anyone and everyone in his path to find his daughter.

What can I say, great movie, probably at the same level of enjoyment with ...

Taken review

"You come to this country, take advantage of the system and think because we are tolerant that we are weak and helpless. Your arrogance offends me." Liam Neeson is an ex-CIA whose daughter was kidnapped in a foreign country. I was surprised Neeson can perform action scenes. The dialogue, locations and score was sensational. The only reservations this critic had on this picture was its believability. If you remember Steven Seagal films, you rarely see him get hurt, well until they eventually killed him in the Executive Decision, a different topic altogether. You see our hero hero jump off bridges, dodge bullets and the like. Only to get all bloodied up in the near conclusion. If it was Die Hard like realistic, this would have been rated higher. Overall, the performances were good ...
