Movie – Taken

Starring: Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, Xander Berkeley, Leland Orser, Jon Gries, David Warshofsky, Katie Cassidy, Holly Valance, Nathan Rippy

Director: Pierre Morel

Synopsis: A retired spy is compelled to use his ‘skills’ when his teenage daughter is kidnapped.

I absolutely loved this movie! And it was great to see one of my favourite actors ever since ‘Rob Roy’ Liam Neeson in action.  And frankly a lesser actor would never have been able to pull off this heavy impact, complex thriller. Also I was thrilled that the ‘adventure’ was set in Paris with an International casts.

The build up in the story is well worth the wait when you get to see the explosive action sequences that follow.  This movie has NOTHING to do about choices one makes in moral dilemmas but rather that a father would stop at NOTHING to save his beloved daughter!

This is definitely a keeper! So I can hardly wait for the DVD to be released….

  1. OH MY GOSH!! best movie ever!! i love the father, he’s so on one! my favouritest part was *spoiler ahead*

    where the daughter was hiding under the bed, talking to her dad. and the dad didn’t panic or say like stupid useless things. instead he was like OK they ARE going to take you, and when they do, drop the phone and start shouting how they look (or smthn along those lines). and he didn’t waste time or what, straight away press record! OH MY GOD!! i got goosebumps at that part when i watched it a few months ago, and i got them again now just thinking about it. the father is da bomb man!!

    • Yup I know what you mean, as I was watching it I was already planning to buy
      the DVD! 😆
