An ex-soldier (Liam Neeson) traveling through Europe embarks on a frantic quest to rescue his daughter (Maggie Grace) after the young girl is abducted by slave traders in District B13 director Pierre Morel's contemporary thriller Taken. Robert Mark Kamen joins the screenwriting team, which also includes Morel and longtime collaborator Luc Besson, who also produces. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This film quickly loses interest in the detective aspect of locating the kidnapped daughter (the part of these movies I like) and degenerates into one violent action scene after another. It feels rushed, and Neeson's character is so absurdly over-powered there's no real suspense.
full of propaganda as usual these days.
it was overly violent and WHY did Liam shohot the woman at the end and electricute that guy? Just another message out of hollywood croud that wars and killing and torture are the way now. well it's NOT.
