Lively actioner that is all about The Neeson,
This review is from: Taken (Extended Harder Cut) [DVD]  (DVD)
Simple but effective, and the towering figure of Liam Neeson, the ultimate No Nonsense Man - gives Taken a dollop of gravitas beyond the capacity of the typical muscle-bound blockhead.
His daughter is abducted for resale into the sex trade on her very first day in Europe. Oh my, it's a big bad world outside the stars and stripes. From the looks of things, her dad has been eagerly awaiting this event all her life; the perfect opportunity to get one over on his bitchy ex-wife and her stinking rich second husband; and a chance to win the devotion of his sweet but silly teenage daughter.
It's a race against time to save his little darling's virginity and Neeson goes at it like a man possessed, snapping necks and torturing gonads in an effort to locate her before she's lost forever. You can guess what happens, but that's no reason not to come along for the ride.
P.S. With repeat viewing it just gets funnier and more ludicrous. Win win.
