Relying on his special skills, he tracks down the ruthless gang that abducted her and launches a one-man war to bring them to justice and rescue his daughter.

On paper, Liam Neeson would appear to be an unusual choice to play the heatseeking missile of a man locked onto rescuing his daughter from sex trafficking Albanian hoodlums in Paris. He soon dispels any doubts with a masterful display of pent up vengeance and calmly brutal expertise with cars, guns, knives and fists. Once the kidnap has taken place it's non-stop action as he uses his CIA field skills to track down the baddies and start terminating them with extreme prejudice. Whilst the villains are crudely drawn, the violence is never cartoonish, being from the Bourne school of realism. Okay, it's not the most densely plotted or sophisticated of films, but the pace is relentless and Neeson dominates the screen without ever trying too hard. Highly recommended.

There are two sides to this movie - the serious one and the fun one.
The serious is that it tells a story based on things that really happen (the women's fate in this movie). My wife just watching these scenes was so horrified and pissed off in the same time that I haven't seen her like that. The bad characters are 100% bad and you feel great when they are taken care of by the enraged father.
The fun part is that the story is very fluent (not believable but you wish you were this guy with his set of skills to do the job that he is doing).
Another idea of Luc Besson - and a brilliant one.
Liam Neeson - I was disappointed when I saw his name in the leading role. But when I saw him in action...he is 100% convincing and excellent in this role.
Looking for a good action movie that will keep you glued to the screen for 1.5h?! - This is your 100% guaranteed pick.

Superior action thriller, with an 80's style linear plot but with 90's sensibilties. Really enjoyed this - the action was gritty and on the
whole grounded in reality - and Liam Neeson was more than convincing at the Bourne style hand to hand combat, and firearm handling, as well as playing an essentially hard man role with a strong sense of dignity and morality.
The Paris locations, and Albanian gangs made for an interesting change as well!
Yes, it's predictable but refreshingly free of the usual malaise of trying to be clever & twisty and then dissapearing where the sun don't shine.
It's violent, but perhaps not to the extent of say, Death Sentence, and Liam Neeson does seem to beat/torture/shoot everything that moves!
There are some grim scenes involving the young girls being trafficked that only serve to increase your desire for Neeson to punch even harder or shoot an assailant 5 times rather than 2!

Liam Neeson plays the lean hard guy surprisingly well in this efficient if brutal thriller.
He is divorced and has given up his career as a government agent of some description, to be near his 17 year old daughter, who lives with his ex-wife and her new rich husband.
When she is kidnapped on a trip to Paris, all his expertise kicks in to get her back. And really, that is about it - in an era of sophisticated thrillers with labyrinthine plots, the narrative here seems very simple and told in straightforward linear fashion, with few if any surprises.
And yet, it works - because it is lean and fast - the action is brutal and frenetic in close up Bourne style, and once events kick off it really does not let up until the unsurprising conclusion. Neeson is lithe and believable as a trained killing machine, giving the film a huge boost of credibility.
There is it has to be said a mean streak in Neeson's character at odds with the family man, as he mercilessly kills off any and everything that gets in his way. In fact, it becomes almost unpleasant that the film is purporting an American has a right to do whatever he likes in Europe to protect `his own', including torture, on the spot assassinations, and untold collateral damage.
However, watched as a straight action flick, this is entertaining enough, as long as you have a strong stomach for the unpleasant underbelly of Paris dying as faces are smashed into hard objects, bullets shatter limbs, and others die in... well, let's say shocking ways. It's like an urban Rambo invented for a new generation!

Just watched this with my dad. An avid hater of American action movies, and even he was taken by suprise at how good this movie is.

Allot of action movies these days dispenses with the proper feelings and emotions behind revenge and true hatred.
But hell, this one doesnt. In a movie that casts Liam Neeson brilliantly in the lead role of a father hell-bent on finding his daughter, and killing (not bringing those responsible to justice such as other movies these days) the people responsable for his daughters kidnapping, attempted drug grooming and passing into prositution.

This in my opinion, is one of only a few good movies that addresses a persons natural reactions and feelings should something happen to their family. Check out Charles Bronson's 'Death Wish', Jodie Foster's 'The Brave One' and Denzel Washington's 'Man on Fire' as well as this for a accurate depiction of a man or womans true rage if their loved one has been harmed.

As action movies go, this one has it all. It has a couple of good car chase scenes. A combination of brilliant fight scenes, as well as what can be described as a couple of brutal interigations and murders by the lead.

Neeson as i said was brilliant, and my only small gripe is at Famke Janssen who i have liked in other films, but i must admit i found a bit anoying in her small role in this one.

I would definately suggest this movie for someone looking to add to their collection. It is well worthy of a 5 out of 5 considering the trype being released these days! I couldn't bring myself to give it a 4. It just scrapes a 5... Enjoy!
