Liam deserved this Movie! Great Actor but never really got the right parts for the fan base that he deserves. Hope his agent realizes this!

Ok, I hate most movies...
Ironman was ok,batman was ok,Bourne series sucks...
Honestly, I think the last really great movie I saw was 300,
But this movie ROCKS!!!!
Here is what I look for
1)No plot holes: this movie is straight forward, easy to follow.
2)Camera Control: The bourne series is full of shaky camera syndrome making it impossible to see a single punch, but not this movie. In Taken the camera is always calm and focused so when he fights someone you clearly see every move he makes.
3) Believability: some movies have scenes that defy the laws of physics and common since, but this movie everything is completely believable.
4) Action/suspence vs. Gore: Back in the day action and suspense were used , but more movies today seem to replace that with gore. This move has very little blood, no gore scene. But every fight scene is brutal and enjoyable. Gore is no substitute , and it was refreshing to see a movie return to the way movies are supposed to be made.

This story is absolutely amazing, in my honest opinion. Not your typical crap-infested story line that drones out over time and becomes a series of repetitive, lame, and frankly boring movie.
This movie centers around a father, Bryan Mills (Played by Liam Neeson), who is a retired government agent, and is employed for his services in what he describes as a "Preventer". His modesty alone lets you know off the bat this man means business. Bryan has a daughter, who wishes to take a trip to Europe with her friend, but things take a turn for the worse when the two girls are kidnapped and forced into a prostitution ring.
At this point in time, Bryan finds himself faced with a difficult challenge: Find his daughter's kidnappers within a 96 hour time frame, or lose her forever.
I won't spoil beyond this point, however, please see this movie. Do it for your children. Do it for your country. Do it for.. Justice.

I wasnt planning on seeing this movie, but it was the only one playing that looked somewhat interesting. Taken is fast paced with a lot of action. Many of the scenes had me on the edge of my seat and had the sellout audience "ooohing" and "ahhhing". If you like guns, knives, car chases, dirty cops and a feel of the world and its reality this ones for you. While I dont think this film deserved applause at its end, some of the audience thought otherwise. I was surprised and you would be too.

I saw this and have to say it was absolutely great! The action was pretty much non-stop & the plot had you on the edge of your seat...Even for a person that does not prefer the action all the time...This was a good one...Now a days it is kind of hard to find a movie you can recommend to all your friends! A MUST SEE
