Hope you guys remember Liam Neeson.. Coincidentally.. He is the guy from back here.. I happened to see his latest 93 min short and sweet flick christened “Taken”.
First impression, it is one of the best action movies i have seen lately. Does it have “jet-li” style superhuman performances? Does it have the state of the art 3D graphics? Does it have the sexiest women starring in it? Is the plot really brain tingling like the matrix?
The answer to ALL the questions above is NO and that, i believe makes the movie so special. Its so simple and real life. It can happen to anyone and you cannot find many scenes in the movie that makes you go “oh!! how did he do it?”. All in all, i beleive that simplicity is what makes the movie so great and made it appealing to a general audience
Here is the poster for that movie:
Now an overview of the movie: Bryan, a former secret agent living in the US, is divorced; he is fond of his 17-year-old daughter Kim who lives with his ex-wife and her new husband. Kim wants to take a vacation in Europe with her friend Amanda, and together follow the Europe tour of U2. Kim’s mother allows this, but Kim also needs permission from Bryan. Since Kim fears that Bryan will not consent because of cautiousness, she pretends that they will only go to Paris. (Courtesy Wiki).
Finally bryan agrees and she visits Europe only to find that she is entangled in a slave trade market, away from home and leaving her dad no clue to trace them expect for a phone call while she was being kidnapped.
Bryan, clueless but with confidence leave Europe in search for his daughter and this movie slowly evolves into one of the most realistically beautiful action flick released in recent times.
I strongly suggest you to watch it, if you get a chance to, and that would 93 minutes well spent, entertained. period.
