Taken

Stars:
4 1/2 stars

His daughter was taken. He has 96 hours to get her back.

Seventeen year-old Kim is the pride and joy of her father Bryan Mills. Bryan is a retired agent who left the Central Intelligence Agency to be near Kim in California. Kim lives with her mother Lenore and her wealthy stepfather Stuart. Kim manages to convince her reluctant father to allow her to travel to Paris with her friend Amanda. When the girls arrive in Paris they share a cab with a stranger named Peter, and Amanda lets it slip that they are alone in Paris. Using this information an Albanian gang of human traffickers kidnaps the girls. Kim barely has time to call her father and give him information. Her father gets to speak briefly to one of the kidnappers and he promises to kill the kidnappers if they do not let his daughter go free. The kidnapper wishes him "good luck," so Bryan Mills travels to Paris to search for his daughter and her friend. (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Review:
Wow. This movie was pretty awesome! It is super intense and full of action. I loved Liam Neeson in this movie. He was phenomenal. Very cool! His fighting scenes were awesome, like Bourne Identity awesome. I loved how he was so determined to find his daughter. One thing I didn't like about this movie was how you see all the women being sexually abused. Well you don't actually see it, but you know what was happening to them. It bothered me because I hate to see that. You know it really does happen in this world and it makes me sick. I wish at the end of this movie he would have somehow saved all those other women from the torture they were in. But since the government knew about it and didn't care, I'm pretty sure he probably couldn't have done too much. And another thing that bothered me was how Maggie Grace (she plays the daughter) over acted all her parts. She always had to be running somewhere like she was 5 years old. It drove me crazy. But I loved this movie and how he was so smart and could just do anything.

You have to like this movie...
