Critics Consensus

Taken's cast hits the right notes, but overall, the series fails to deliver a compelling narrative distinguished from its source material.

Audience Reviews for Taken: Season 1

  • Feb 21, 2022
    Taken: Season 1: 5 / 10
  • Nov 26, 2020
    A slightly different take than the theatrical version. This one focuses on the past of Bryan Mills. At times it got ‘Jack Ryan' vibe, but the pace and direction remains flat. It is hard to be engaged in this series since the most interesting part of the franchise is the latter part as shown in the film (how he saved his daughter/ex wife/etc) | follow us at @uncle.review
  • Oct 16, 2019
    Very entertaining, not sure why the low scores.
  • Sep 05, 2019
    Perfect for being a fun action show. Fun to watch and engaging. Would love to see it back on the air.
  • Aug 01, 2019
    nice actors and plot
  • Apr 23, 2019
    Generally a subpar offering very no linkage at all to the films, even as prequel. The backstory and setup were also very thin with the hero displaying very little of the required skill set.
  • Nov 08, 2018
    Great action series. Clive is awesome.
  • Oct 22, 2018
    Great show. Well-paced, great characters although Jennifer Beals looks emaciated. Bryan was my favorite character although I didn't care for his girlfriend.
  • Mar 03, 2018
    Clive Standen is good
  • Feb 21, 2018
    Honorable story line. Good balance between action, suspense, technology, family/human relations, and good acting. Good diversity and good gender representation!!! Besides it's filmed in Toronto - one of my favorite cities in the world!
