Taken is a good movie but be warned this is definitely a guy’s movie. Liam Neeson’s character is like an older Jason Bourne. This guy takes down almost everyone he comes across with absolutely no mercy. But don’t feel bad for them, they were all really bad guys. Liam Neeson plays a retired government agent whose daughter (played by Maggie Grace) gets kidnapped on a trip to France. So he embarks on a personal mission to obviously find his daughter, but also to inflict pain, suffering, and death on the people who took her.
I just watched the 2008 remake of My Sassy Girl and it totally sucked. If you don’t know, My Sassy Girl is a South Korean romantic comedy that came out in 2001 and was immensely popular throughout Asia. The remake doesn’t compare AT ALL to the Korean version. The remake is worse in every aspect. The people who produced this movie clearly didn’t understand what made the original so great. If you’re going to watch this movie, watch the Korean version. I don’t have time to go into details right now but I’ll probably make a more in-depth review another time.
I recently watched Vantage Point and it was a really a mixed bag. I guess it was an okay movie. It was interesting to see each person’s individual point of view but there are so many plot holes or plot devices that were just really weak.
You really have to watch the movie to understand this review. I just can’t review this movie without tearing apart the plot. Everything else like the acting and the action sequences were decent and pretty good actually.
