Loved it, great movie

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.

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.

Always enjoy these over-the-top professionals with remarkable skills. Horrible world he gets into, made me really sad.

Taken was one of the first thrillers I have seen on the big screen and boy was it a good start! Taken is a fun, thrilling, action packed and relentless!

Neeson makes this movie his own with the first of the 'Liam action movies' which have transformed cheesy cinema from 2008-15. With a memorable plot, brilliant action and surprisingly decent dialogue, Taken is everything you want (and expect, for the better or worse) from something of its calibre.
Verdict: A
August 1, 2016
Being a fun action thriller about a dad who has to save his daughter from being kidnapped, this film really works out as a simple action film that is very enjoyable. The plot line for the film is rather understandable, the acting for the film is rather decent, the way the film is directed is fantastic, and the action sequences are brainless fun. Considered at least by me as one of the "best" action films out there, Taken is a well directed and thought out action film.

A very good fun entertaining action film that doesn't waste much time in getting to the action, Liam does well in playing the hero, A very simple plot, A good way to spend an hour and a half.

****
It's great fun, and 'Taken' rightly deserves its place in action history. Liam Neeson gives, what is at this point, an iconic performance, and the whole affair is directed smoothly by Pierre Morel. What a shame they had to ruin it with the god-awful sequel(s).

Watching people get killed has never been more fun.
