Ahhh I had heard so much about this, and I finally saw it. I can see how many people loved this movie. It was AWESOME, thrilling, emotional. Not to mention, badass. Though not very realistic haha, how he didn't get one bullet untill the end, and how he was so good at everything even though he probably hadn't slept.. Nevertheless LOVED IT.

"Taken" is a fast-moving and mostly entertaining thriller. It's very much like the "Bourne" series of movies but its main character Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is pulled back into the mayhem of his old profession through some convenient occurrences involving his teenage daughter. As I think about it a little more the events that occur are actually amazingly convenient in establishing an excuse for Bryan to take action and make him even more determined by using his daughter's abduction to make it personal too. There is nothing wrong with the action sequences. They are quite involving even though I don't quite buy Neeson as this type of action hero. Qui-Gon Jinn yes...Jason Bourne II not so much. Neeson's character Bryan is borderline indestructible here and his powers of deduction require a real leap of faith to truly enjoying this movie. I can't make this leap entirely which knocks "Taken" down a couple of notches for me.

Random viewing tonight, just wanted a slick and simple action-thriller and this fit the bill. Liam Neeson kicks ass and can see why his career in this genre really took off. The camera work was probably the biggest drawback (shaky cam), likely trying emulate the Bourne franchise or something. But en More

Your arrogance offends me.

It is proof positive that you can still have a basic and formulaic genre piece and the multiplex crowd will forgive it the sins of film making. For here we have a revenge thriller that is over reliant on a ream of contrivances? The kind that people scoff at when horror More

Probably not good enough to have started the Revenge-Renaissance that it somehow did, but still a pretty entertaining time. _Taken_ does hit a lot of clichés though, and I mean, it starts hitting them right away. We're literally only minutes into the film before we find out that Neeson's lead chara More
