Taken (2008) Film Review

images-1

Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) has retired from the CIA to live near his ex-wife Lenore (Franke Janssen) and teenage daughter Kim (Maggie Grace).  Against his better judgement, he lets his daughter travel to France where she is promptly taken (whilst on the phone to her father).  He gets himself over there and will do anything to save her.

 

Oh, yay action films. Liam Neeson runs and fights with the best of them and really makes the movie. The premise is quite awful, but makes the urgency of the rescue even more intense. Fabulous.
