Film: Taken Click for more info

After last week's kidnapping antics I was a bit weary about watching another film about another father trying to retrieve another daughter after another kidnapping. But for each reason Kidnap was such a poor, poor film, Taken takes the story and smashes it out of the field.

At its core Taken is really just another Bourne film, just like the posters had promised. You even have some of the same locations getting ripped up! Actually the film is more of a Bourne Light - there's no excessive plot or far reaching context here, just a guy with some skills trying to get his daughter back.

Full of good action, excellent dialogue and a gripping story, there's no way I can't recommend Taken. At 94 minutes it's not long, but what it is is filled to the brim with the goods. Awesome.

  1. Is it just me or did this movie appear under...hyped?

    Anyway, I've been shouting out about this from the rooftops! I absolutely loved it: a well executed, fast paced thriller.. I couldnt have asked for much more!

    I even think i fancy Neeson now thanks to his five star role!
