Superb film. I agree with the wife, Neeson's voice is hypnotic.

Brilliant film. Utterly utterly preposterous plot with Liam Neeson as a one man army with seemingly psychic powers of deduction, but a great popcorn film, worth watching. Liam Neeson does make a decent action hero and this is a film that takes itself seriously, as it deals with a real subject of sex trafficking. Might make people think twice about their safety abroad anyway :)
#11
Outstanding film and price.

Actually watched this for the 6 or 7th time the other night.

“If you’re looking for ransom, I don’t have any money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that will be the end of it I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you. I will find you. And I will kill you.”

And he still can't find Bin Laden?

Agreed with all the comments above.. Neeson kicks serious butt in this. Rarely ever me and the missus both enjoy a movie to the same extent but it's well worth a watch

Wow... Can't remember how many times on here I've seen a 15 thread post all with praise

can anyone comment on the extended material please i.e. is it worth it above the normal cut?

Personally I agree with Empire's 1* review of this tripe.

http://www.empireonline.com/reviews/reviewcomplete.asp?FID=135695:
"Liam Neeson’s ill-judged presence should not cause you to even consider going within 30 feet of a fleapit that’s screening Taken. Here he plays an ex-spy divorcé who’s desperate to make up years of parental neglect to his daughter (an over-aged Maggie Grace). This involves Daddy creepily obsessing over her 17th-birthday present, trying to facilitate her childhood ambition to become “a singer” (this involves saving a pop star imaginatively named ‘Diva’ - Holly Valance, remember her? - from a crazed fan), and agonising over the fact that she wants to spend her summer holidaying in Europe. Terrifying, terrifying Europe.

Yet to Europe - specifically Paris - she goes, where within minutes of landing she and her slutty (read: dead-meat) pal are hoodwinked by a slimy Frenchman and kidnapped by sneering Albanian gangsters whose intention is to hook their victims on skag and sell them to cold-eyed Arabs for white-girlie sex. Turns out Daddy - paranoid parent and towering xenophobe that he is - was right. If a good little teenaged Caucasian strays even an inch beyond the mighty US of A’s borders, she’s pale prey to every godless, sex-mad, drug pushing foreigner out there. Hell, even Daddy’s ol’ French-spy buddy can’t be relied upon to help; he’s French! “Jean-Claude, I’ll tear down the Eiffel Tower if I have to!” growls Daddy, like a true American. Despite speaking with an Irish accent, this guy bleeds stars and **** stripes. He’s from a land where actions speak louder than words… So cue an hour or so of him brutally pummelling every foreigner who stands in his way, stopping only to torture a few. He even deliberately shoots one utterly innocent bystander. Call it friendly fire. Or rather, don’t. If you took Commando and replaced all its humour (intentional or otherwise) with snarling hatred, you’d end up with Taken - a risible male-re-empowerment fantasy set in a world where a fatal headshot and rescue from a life of inter-racial rape is the best way to win back your daughter’s heart.

Interestingly, it’s directed by a Frenchman (Pierre Morel) and produced by his longtime accomplice, Luc Besson. On the evidence of this, they’re now either self-hating freedom-fries munchers, or just knowingly manipulating US prejudices in the name of entertainment. We suspect the latter.

Verdict
A venomous little actioner that mistakes bile for adrenaline."

great film, heated

Been wanting to get this price for a while. It's been this price various times in store at supermarkets but whenever I've tried to get it it's been sold out or was never there in the first place.

It's about time someone online made it this price. Ordered!

Film of the year, last year for me (When I first saw it on DVD). The reviews on play.com disagree totally with the views of empire. If you've not seen it yet, WATCH IT. Bargain for £2.99.

I gather that the 'extended' version is not much different to the cinema release in the UK. The film was edited to give it the 15?/PG? certificates in the UK and US, but not much was cut. I have seen a review somewhere but can't find it now.

Hot price for a good film though.
#31
It's so depressing how many people actually seem to like this trivial piece of cack. The direction is fine, it's just a pity there doesn't seem to be the scriptwriting talent to make an intelligent action movie these days. Style wins over substance every time.

Hot for the price, absolute zero for the content.

That "moron" gave 2 of your favourite films (State of Play and The Road) 4*, while The Dark Knight was awarded 5* from Empire.

I just don't understand the appeal of this film unless you hate Europe, or more specifically France. So yes, I can see it's appeal to people in the States, but not anyone on this side of the pond. Nationalities aside the film lacked a decent story or script and Neeson was pretty much the only person with any acting chops. The only praise I gave to this film after watching was the fight scenes (the one in the French policeman's house and the final one specifically) were well made, but that can't save a film with such a poor excuse for a story. But hey, everyone's entitled to their opinion, I was just voicing mine like so many others voiced theirs.

I suggest the Empire 'reviewer' has a look into human trafficking figures,they reckon 800,000 people a year fall victim to this, all right not all of it is the 'Taken type' but it's certainly a part of it.
