This is a such a good movie!!! Loved the fact that Liam Neeson goes to extreme measures to do what most would to return a love one to them. Very action packed one I will definately buy! Only reason for the 4 stars is the ending is a little strange after such an action pack movie but still well worth seeing!!
Wow...this movie was great! Talk about suspense. It keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Liam Neesen is brilliant in this movie. You will NOT be disappointed if you like action and suspense!
Liam Neeson is the man! Move over Kwai Gon Gin, he can star in a very satisfying, no nonsense action movie. Pierre Morel and Luc Besson collaborated on this gem, so it had to be great. Ironically, my son asked me why I rented a chic flick after watching the opening of the movie, he ate his words at the end. Highly recommended!
I didn't picture Liam Neeson as a "James Bond" type action killer but he brought a smooth style to the character that made it somewhat believable. The pace is good and the story doesn't add a lot of subplots. Overall, well done.
