    My wive liked it and she usually doesn\'t much get into action films. Someone tell me though, when Liam Neeson is let\'s say extracting info from the Albanian, he took his tie off after turning on the switch the first time. But when he turns the switch the second time I could swear the tie was back on. I loved the film though. Well paced.\r\nGood storyline and even though it dealt with violence and sex I saw no gratuitous shots that seem to find there way into so many other movies.

    "Taken"
    A movie about a ex goverment operative whos daughter goes missing while overseas. Liam Neeson the father goes through extreme lenths to get her back, in spite of the current relationship with his daughter and ex wife. Through gun fire, kiddnapping, car chasing, and constant confliction in his mind, uncovers the hiden industry of europe. The kiddnapping and exploitation of young girls forced into prostitution by albanian nationals. The movie starts off slow but progresses in short time. I caught notice of some lines that were "corney" but in all honesty GREAT MOVIE! Liam Neeson has done it again in a great proformance. Is very recomended for the Suspence/thriller and action crowd. Very happy with this movie and am certian it's award material.

    I couldn\\\'t disagree with the previous reviewer more. This movie is a statement about a father\\\'s love for his daughter and the lengths he will go to in order to maintain that bond...even in the face of possibly deadly consequences. As far as the claims of racism are concerned I think you\\\'d have to have a seriously skewed view on life to take that away from this movie. Liam Neeson does an excellent job of playing the \\\"calm on the surface, but, boiling underneath it all\\\" character perfected by Matt Damon in the Bourne movies. All in all a great thrill ride and well worth paying to see on the big screen.

    Simplistic, simple-minded juvenile writing ... Jingoistic, borderline-racist movie ... Remember how Abraham Lincoln talked about appealing to the better angels in us? Well, entertainment like this is designed to push buttons to rouse the worst devils in people. This is how people are eased into accepting atrocities perpetrated by their governments.

    Liam Neeson does a decent acting job. My question to Liam: why do you lend credibility, man, to crap like this by your presence?

    One of the best movies ive seen in a while....I was 50/50 on if this movie was gonna be good....seeing the trailer i thought what a great storyline...but sometimes they just don\'t follow the right direction with movies like this...knowing that Liam nelson is a phenomenal actor i was leaning towards it being good...his acting was great, the storyline was great so i deff give this 5 stars and a must see to all movie goers

    Much better than I thought it would be! VERY exciting. I would recomend it to anybody (over 18). Not quite as good as grand torino, but what is?
    I've seen 10 movies in the past 6 weeks and this is one of the top 2.

    Liam Neeson at his best. A must see for action lovers!! The story starts of a little slow then dives right into non stop action. Amazing plot with a great line up of actors. Liam Neeson is hardcore and stops at nothing to get his daughter back.
