Taken

One word: Breathless !

This is an action tour de force, with Liam Neeson as a one man army out to find his daughter. Expect amazing action and stunts and over-the-top fight scenes all the way.

Don’t worry about the implausibility of it. It’s part written by Luc Besson, so if you’re familiar with his other work you’ll know what to expect.

Neeson an ex-government man who’s retired to be nearer his estranged daughter. He allows her to travel to paris with a friend, then one thing leads to another and she’s kidnapped by Albanian sex slavers. Cue Neeson hunting her down and taking on everyone single handed.

This shows Neeson as an action star, similiar in a way to Bourne or perhaps the Daniel Craig Bond reboot. It’s non stop, adrenalin fuelled, hard core action. You’ll feel every punch and no-one is spared. The bad guys are distatesful sex slavers – soon killed in droves with impunity – and even tortured. Needless to say, not for minors 🙂

If you like action – you’ll love this!

Verdict: 9 / 10 – Neeson takes no prisoners and pulls no punches…
