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.
Sometimes it just feels good to see the hero kick ass and not even care about taking names. I mean he seriously kicked some ass in this movie. More like killed them. One example, he walks alone into a house full of baddies and takes all of them out. And I know how that sounds but it’s not done in a very cheesy way. It really is like the Bourne movies, it feels very realistic. Well, as realistic as this type of movie can be. The lucky ones that weren’t killed got away with a bunch of broken bones and probably a nice concussion.
The main character was also very true to his words. He tells the bad guy at the beginning over the phone that he’d find him and kill him, and that’s exactly what he did. Anyway, I recommend this movie, bottom line is it was entertaining.
