Loved this one! While the premise has been done before (kidnapping), the process that Liam goes through and his acting are superb. He's still got it, and is able to carry his part very well as the last guy on earth you want to make angry with you.

Film 4.5 out of 5
PQ 4.5 out of 5

I finally saw this and its ok but I had to roll my eyes on how bad of shots the bad guys were. All that lead they threw at him in numerous scenes and at best I think he got nicked once. Sheesh.

The flick was a revenge story. Once you see it once, you're done.

What's the attraction that warrants rewatching the thing 10+ times?

Just like to understand, not questioning your viewing choices.

We all have movies that just really pulls us in emotionally. Don't ask me why, but I can watch Ratatouille over and over again. After all, we are all here because we're some sort of movie and music buffs at heart.

I enjoyed this in the theater.[img]http://******************************************[/img] I agree it wasn't revolutionary, just a fun revenge action thriller.

I got "Taken" by this movie. It's entertaining to a certain extent>IT. I thought the movie is/was fairly predictable. I hate to be an unpopular critic but it was a waste of time, money and talent.
