It's been a long time since I've posted anything about a movie. That's because it's been awhile since I've been excited enough about a movie to take the time to write something. Well, I have to speak up about the movie Taken. I absolutely loved it.
I'm not much of a suspense reader, and often times, suspense movies get put into my Netflix queue and then skipped over again and again. I don't like to be scared, and my life at times has plenty of stress on its own. I don't want to spend two hours on pins and needles, biting my nails. But the critics I trust the most all loved this film, so I decided to take a chance. I'm so glad I did.
Liam Neeson is a superb action hero. He is very believable in his role as a father who wants to grow closer to his 17 year old daughter after too many years away from her because of his job with the government as a "preventer." When she is kidnapped in Paris, he kicks into action, a man with a particular set of skills that should make the kidnappers (dealing in human trafficking) afraid, very afraid.
So if you've skipped seeing Taken, I suggest you give it a try. I give it 5 Stars.
