One of my personal favorites, I've watched this over and over again without being tired of it. Amazing acting and very action packed.

It may be a bit too violent for a PG-13 movie but Liam Neeson demonstrates just how badass he is in Taken with tons of fun action sequences and a couple of heart-pounding thrills making it an action movie that remains entertaining in its own right. True, it has some plotholes like the two girls early on in the movie telling a complete stranger their personal details...because they totally won't suffer possible consequences at all... but this movie, upon being seen, won't be remembered for that. Instead, it will be remembered for main protagonist Bryan Mills' iconic phone speech.

Solo il carisma di Liam Neeson salva un film come Taken, dove le scene d'azione sono talmente caotiche che fanno venire il mal di mare. La sceneggiatura piuttosto mediocre e a tratti quasi ridicola, con dialoghi veramente di basso livello e scene incoerenti e poco realistiche. Il montaggio la parte peggiore del film, troppo repentino e veloce, lontanissimo dagli spettacolari tagli che hanno reso famosa la trilogia di Jason Bourne. Nonostante un mare di difetti, spegnendo il cervello si riesce ad apprezzare il film per quello che , semplice e puro divertimento da pop corn.

With a well fundamented narrative, great script and thrilling scenes, however Taken falls down into action movies's cliches with a very predictable narrative and unoriginal story.

Liam Neeson morphs into a badass and it works!

A bit of a new-age classic, even if it contains some poor acting and a badly read script.

An amazing film, filled with non-stop intense action espionage. Liam Neeson is as captivating as ever and makes a very convincing tough guy.

Liam Neeson is cool.

The directing is the worst part. Back when chaos cam was still in vogue. It ruins nearly all of what would have been otherwise fantastic action sequences. It's a fun action movie, all things considered.

I am not sure if the glaring plotholes are result of bad editing or just bad script writing, but it does make for one entertaining romp after relatively slow burning 25 minute opening introduction. And oh everyone speaks English.

Great to see an action flick with an unconventional main character. Full of suspense and snappy dialogue.

Liam is a bit of a covert anti-hero, but this film is predictable in what little plot that it has.

The plot is way too predictable, but Liam Neeson will never fail to entertain.
½ September 12, 2016
Went by too fast, no emotional heft to move the story along or make you care, and feels like there are no stakes at hand. There's also no score behind the action, which makes it not as good. But Liam Neeson is fine. With THE monologue at the beginning to start the story, it's gonna be hard to have the rest of the movie live up to it. But I do think it's better than the next two!

Pretty good, but a bit fantastical. Am I supposed to believe that ONE guy (as good as he is) can take down an entire organization? C'mon!!! Total bad ass that Liam Neeson, and anything w/ Famke Janssen is the cherry on top.
