Robert Mark Kamen joins the screenwriting team, which also includes Morel and longtime collaborator Luc Besson, who also produces. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Liam Neeson is fantastic. This movie walks in the path of "The Professional." Neeson is a former CIA agent whose daughter is kidnapped in Paris. Neeson vows to kill the man who takes her if said man doesn't release his girl. Watching him search for his daughter is completely entertaining from the action to the intricacy.

This movie was full of action and suspense. I was so involved in the action at one point I was cheering for Liam Neeson's character and at another point I was crying. Slave trading is a very real threat today and this movie brought it close to home. If you like Liam Neeson, as I do, this movie is for you. If he isn't, the subject of the movie should be.
