Coolly confident action.

The only thing we learn in the early going is that Bryan Mills really, really hates it when his beautiful blonde relatives are endangered. Glad NBC cleared that up for us.

I don't think NBC pulls this one off either. Best to keep your sword sharpened, Clive.

"Oh please," "Oh stop," and "Huh?" are only three of the things I kept shouting while watching NBC's Taken ...The rest of my exclamations are unprintable in a family paper.

It's been made pretty ordinary. Too bad, Standen deserves to be shown off better.

There's plenty of slam-bang in Taken, NBC's distant prequel to the trilogy of films, but the result is less a buzz than a headache.
