Taken takes off as action-packed film

“How many people would be able to track down an underground European group of women-selling men, with nothing more than a blood chilling phone call? Taken is the movie which portrays this adventure while staying inside the realistic box. Bryan Mills [Liam Neeson] gives a performance steaming with passionate hatred, so much so that viewers will undoubtedly cheer on every bit of inhumane battery he is able to inflict.”

How many people would be able to track down an underground European group of women-selling men, with nothing more than a blood chilling phone call?
Taken is the movie which portrays this adventure while staying inside the realistic box. Bryan Mills [Liam Neeson] gives a performance steaming with passionate hatred, so much so that viewers will undoubtedly cheer on every bit of inhumane battery he is able to inflict.
The unending amount of nameless henchmen are spared no mercy from each former CIA agent’s throat punches or karate chops.
Nerves run wild for viewers from the initial kidnapping point, a terrifying cat and mouse scene, up to the death-defying finale.
Despite the annoyingly large amount of coincidences throughout the movie, which are only noticeable in hindsight, Taken stayed away from over-exaggerated graphics and acrobatics.
The action comes directly from Neeson’s character taking every possible risk in order to find his daughter in a short amount of time.
As it remains realistic, the most frightening aspect of Taken comes from the fact that everything that happens in the film could possibly take place in the lives of anyone who watches it.
Furthermore, seeing how the women were so ruthlessly treated, knowing that is it truly happening all over the world is nothing short of horrifying.
After finishing movies such as Friday 13, Freddy Krueger, etc. any fear one experiences is subject to imagination alone.
After watching Taken, it is possible that one will travel with more care than normal due to a realistic fear.
In fact, it would not be surprising to learn that Taken was released in theaters specifically to teach the dangers of travel when correct and active care is forgotten; any amazing hand-to-hand combat is simply a spectacular perk.
