Product Description

What could be a skillful but ordinary action flick gets a surprising emotional heft from the presence of Liam Neeson as the hero. Bryan Mills (Neeson) has given up his career as a spy to form a relationship with his estranged teenage daughter--but when, on a trip to Paris, she's kidnapped by slavers, Mills uses all his connections and skills to turn the city of lights upside down and rescue her. Like most of the movies that writer/producer Luc Besson has a hand in (such as La Femme Nikita, The Transporter, Unleashed, and many other French action movies), Taken drips with lurid violence (a bit toned-down to get a PG-13 rating, but there's still plenty of it), deranged sentimentality, and stereotypes of all kinds. But this doesn't stop his movies from being effective thrill-rides, and Taken is no exception. Taken pays just enough attention to the illusion of procedure--making it seem like Mills knows all the right steps to track down his daughter--that the movie cheerfully seduces your suspension of disbelief, despite many plot holes and scenes where Mills doesn't get scratched despite bullets flying in all directions or pretends to be a French policeman despite not speaking French or even adopting a French accent. What holds it all together is Neeson; his gravitas and emotional availability make his character--the usual action fantasy of impossible competence and righteous fury--somehow seem real and relatable. --Bret Fetzer

Taken is a simple film about a former government security agent who goes to France to save his kidnapped daughter. The first quarter sets the premise and the second quarter concentrates on intelligence gathering, which was easily my favorite section. But the second half of Taken drops all pretense and is simply an endless procession of revenge kills against scummy underworld characters and their sleazy clients. You know, where everybody is a lousy shot except the hero. I found the elicited emotions of the film very similar to the old Death Wish films. A friend and I overdosed on revenge films many years back and I've never really regained a taste for them. If you like seeing scores of low-lifes get their bloody comeuppance, then give this one a shot.

The Blu-Ray package looks really good. Since I didn't exactly love this film, I won't go through it all but fans should be pleased. You can watch either the theatrical version (PG-13, only 93 min) or the unrated version. There are standard featurettes, two commentary tracks for the unrated version as well as some interactive viewing feature.

Fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it in theaters. Not that i want to compare the movies themselves, but this had the same feeling of surprise and wow as when I watched V for Vendetta.

It was a simple concept that captivated you quickly and wasted no time in small talk. Everything, each scene whether small or big had meaning in them. The scene that is the most emotional in a sense, was when Bryan talks to the kidnappers, it grabs you and afterwords, you can imagine in how much sh_t they are in without realizing it.

Beautiful and worth rewatching again and again.

I'm not a big fan of action movies. They tend to focus on violence and killing as many people as possible in the most original ways, but a select few have more depth. Taken falls into the latter category.

Why is it so good?

If you had told me that a 56-year-old actor would make one of the best action movies I've ever seen, I would have laughed and thought how bad Roger Moore's version of James Bond was in A View to a Kill and Octopussy. Action movies often feature actors who look the part, but who can't really act. Arnold Schwarzenegger springs to mind. Liam Neeson changes all that with this one performance. He doesn't look like he could take on the world, but his acting ability is so good that he convinces you that he's capable of everything he does in the movie.

Bryan Mills (Neeson) used to work for the government as a CIA operative. He still associates with friends from his previous job, but he's given up that career in an attempt to get closer to his daughter, Kim (Maggie Grace). She lives with his ex-wife, Lenore (Famke Janssen), and her rich stepfather. When Mills takes Kim a thoughtful gift on her seventeenth birthday, her stepfather gives her a horse. Mills doesn't seem to have a chance of winning her respect. What's more, Lenore apparently hates him.

Mills is given another chance to make a connection with Kim when she asks him to sign a consent form so that she can leave the country for a vacation. As she's 17, she needs the permission of both parents. Mills isn't happy about the idea. He's seen a lot of criminal activity in his former line of work and understands the dangers involved. Is he just being paranoid? His dire warnings seem exaggerated, but we soon see that they are justified.

"Taken" is a film that keeps you glued to the TV the entire time, the pace is so perfect. There were 3 films made (so far) and this first film is the best one. The others are worth seeing but this one is good for repeated viewings.

Liam Neeson plays a man (a former spy) with a "particular set of skills" that you don't want to mess with. His daughter is kidnapped while travelling to Paris, France and he sets out to get her back. We are bombarded with these "former spy" dark action heros in movies and most of these films have the same thin plots, are made very quickly, rely on lots of effects and just plainly suck! This film works very well. It's mostly hand to hand combat and Neeson is convincing in the role (although by the 3rd film he's starting to look too old).

If you like this film, also check out Neeson in "A Walk Among the Tombstones", which is similar and very good.

I was on the edge of my seat during most of this picture. It was VERY good. Of course, Liam Neeson is, perhaps, the biggest reason for this picture being so good. He is so convincing. I am looking forward to seeing "Taken 2". I can only hope that it is as enjoyable as the first "Taken" is. You won't be sorry buying this movie.

Lots of action in this film. Liam Neeson plays an undercover armed, personal security guard.
Liam's job is pretty straight forward until his daughter is kidnapped in Europe.
This action drama covers the hunt for the daughter with a no holds barred dedication
to find & eradicate/kill the culprits if necessary. Revenge is the theme.
