Liam Neeson is nuts!
Taken is so far the most exciting movie of the new year. It follows Bryan Mills (Neeson) as he travels to Paris to save his teenage daughter, who has been abducted and forced into the slave trade. Using special training he has from his years working undercover with the government, Mills pretty much takes out an entire sex slave empire with his bare hands.
It's full of thrills and jumps, including some awesome car chase scenes, and some crazy stunts and fights. Plus, it's all set against a breathtaking Paris background. International setting + car chases + Liam Neeson = a movie worth seeing.
At a time when movies usually suck, Taken is non stop from start to finish. Definitely worth your time...although, I agree with my friend Ben, they could have picked a name that isn't quite so cheesy.
