2-Second Movie Review: Taken

imagesMovie: Taken
Starring: Liam Neeson, Guy from Alien Resurrection, Others

If you like Liam Neeson and movies where the main character kicks some serious ass, then Taken is just for you. It stars Liam Neeson as a guy who kicks a ton of ass after his daughter is abducted in Paris — he’s a former special ops guy who turns into Qui-Gon’s version of Jack Bauer. Trick is, they cut out the rest of his team after the first 10 minutes — something that bummed me out. One of the guys was in Alien Resurrection, and I was hoping to see more of him later on. Taken is basically Liam Neeson’s turn to be Jason Bourne for a while. Nothing wrong with that folks. Green light. Add that to some kick ass car chases and rooftop battles and a meaty scene where he hacks into a cell network. Special bonus — Famke Janssen as the Mom. From Rob Roy to the Gangs of New York, Liam Neeson has officially Taken me to his fan club.
