On both standard DVD and Blu-ray, you get two versions of movie: the original theatrical version and an unrated extended cut of the movie.

It's got all the attributes of a guilty pleasure - excitement, some undeniably enjoyable scenes and the absence of what it needs to be more memorable and more substantial.

This heart-stopping revenge flick written by Luc Besson is easily Liam Neeson's most memorable performance since his Oscar-nominated outing in Schindler's List.

The action is engaging but rarely exciting; the drama heftier but still far from convincing.

"Taken" has turned out to be the surprise hit of year and I would recommend this hit to all.

In a lesser actor's hands, the powerful impact of the subject matter would not have been so ably delivered.

The script is more hard-hitting and realistic than [Besson's] Transporter films, which means youll only laugh out loud two or three times.
March 22, 2009
Taken is the best action thriller of 2009 thus far.
March 20, 2009
This briskly paced movie delivers a full payload of action and leaves you mentally exhausted. You immediately recall the famous line from "The Wizard of Oz" that "There is no place like home."
March 6, 2009
A morally specious but undeniably efficient brainstem-tickler -- the most effective action/revenge thriller in years.
March 3, 2009
Neeson delivers a typically compelling performance in (for him) an atypically muscle-bound role.
March 1, 2009
Fortunately, somewhat-sloppy storytelling never gets in the way of this briskly paced action adventure.

A bizarre mix of sentimentality and bone-cracking violence, this Hardcore/Not Without My Daughter hybrid pits a determined father against the thuggish Albanian sex traffickers who kidnapped daddy's little girl as she vacationed in Paris.<

This is a Neeson driven story and he doesn't disappoint for anyone who likes him or a good adventure/thriller.

Was Liam Neeson looking for a script with lousier dialogue than "The Phantom Menace"?
February 19, 2009
Neeson is a major reason Taken, a riveting, revenge thriller gets praiseworthy marks.

This is not a movie about moral dilemmas-it's about a father who will rip out your eyeballs if you don't give him his daughter back.
February 17, 2009
Single-minded and suitably rough around the edges.
February 16, 2009
Taken feels like an '80s action movie ... albeit a good one with a hero who fights with the ferocity of a dozen men.
