"Taken" - Movie Review

I just watched "Taken" last night... it was EXCELLENT!!!  If you like to see the bad guy get what's coming to him... you'll love this movie.  It will have your blood pumping for various reasons.  I haven't talked back to a movie like this since "Man On Fire" with Denzel Washington.

Liam Neeson did a superb job playing this role.  He kicked some major butt!  I was very animated during most of the movie. When his daughter was taken WHILE he was on the phone with her, I could just feel a parents nightmare living this situation.  And when he told the dude on the phone, "Let her go now and I won't look for you.  If not, I will look for you, I WILL find you, and I will kill you!" you got that he was stating a fact, not just bluffing or throwing out idle threats in the heat of the moment.  The guy replies back with, "Good luck.", which comes back to haunt him... I don't want to give away too much for those who haven't seen it.  But it is an excellent moment.

I have to admit, very unchristian thoughts and words were all abound.  I wanted those guys dead... and not in a civilized way.  This movie evokes those primal feelings... that these horrendous people, these scum-of-the-earth, should not and were NOT going to get away with everything you see during his search for his daughter.
