Taken (2008)

Luc Besson's creative fingerprints are all over this movie. In general if you see his name in the credits its a quality product. Taken was released in Europe a year before it made it to the US. A critical bomb (Rotten Tomatoes 58%) that succeded because the audiences could not get enough of it.($228 million boxoffice) Liam Neeson is a freight train of violence and determination who plows down everyone who stands between him and his loss. Maggie Grace who played Shannon on lost, and Bond Girl Famke Jansson play the family under stress. A must see.

  1. I agree, fun movie. The action was great despite the cliches.
