Taken has been widely considered a great cinematic action film experience as it combines action and suspense and overall thrills from start to finish. Having seen the sequels before the original, one can agree that the original does live up to the hype and is massively more concise and arguably the best film of the franchise. Liam Neeson plays his role as one should and is convincing in the role, as well as the supporting cast of the daughter played by Maggie Grace and his ex-wife played by Famke Janssen. Another great thing about Taken is the length of the film, as we have seen many action films drag on with little subplots we do not care for, but with Taken the film isn't too long and every piece of screen time is vital. Overall, Taken delivers on what it should as an intense and thrilling action piece of art.

This movie single handily solidified Liam Neeson as one of the best action leads in modern films. He expertly handles the drama and intensity of the story as well as the phenomenal action sequences. He's done action before this and after this but this is the only must see. It's a very re-watchable movie with unnecessary sequels, just stick with the original.

The acting is awful, the story ridiculous, the editing of Neeson in "action" is amateurish, the fight scenes are laughable....this is a movie barely worth watching once. Took me 9 years to finally get to it, but obviously I didn't miss anything worthwhile. Why this movie made it big (other than the anti-Muslim feelings whipped up globally) and worse, why it's rated 7.8 here, is beyond me. Critics clearly get it right on Rotten Tomatoes, at 58%.
