This was an excellent action film, though some of the parts were unbelievable. Liam Neeson should have been killed about 3 times, but that's the fun of Hollywood, the hero is always invincible. Good movie for young ladies to watch, a good lesson about talking to strangers and giving out too much personal information! The message---DON'T!

there is not compelling thing that stands out about this movie except it kept me on the edge of my seat with nonstop action for the entire movie i enjoyed the movie.(very similar to a bourne movie).

"Taken" is better than the latest James bond film, but fall short of "the Bourne Ultimatum." Liam Neeson plays a former spy who goes to France to rescue her kidnapped daughter from being sold into sex slavery. His character is a cross between James Bond and Dirty Harry as goes though Paris looking for his daughter. There is some stuff that I like and some stuff that i didn't like. "Taken" has moments where the PG-13 rating has been pushed toward a R. "Taken" is exciting, good enough to give it a mild recommedition.

This movie is so riveting and will keep your interest the entire movie. It is suspenseful and will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Decent action elements with an interesting premise and good acting.

Surprisingly good movie! It takes a while to get past Liam Neeson and his dramatic roles and his appearance in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, but once you do, you realize that this is one guy you don't want pursuing you.

However, any parent can attest to wanting to have the skills that his character possesses should your child be taken. This is the heart of any revenge film and the movie carries it off successfully.
