Though Taken tends to be a bit melodramatic, it's a solid film. The strongest appeal of the movie is Liam Neeson's performance. He's pretty kick ass. When his character's daughter is kidnapped by sex traffickers, he springs into action to rescue her. As he chases the bad guys, my cries of get'em turned to shock more than once. One chase scene is especially exciting. There is cool camera work and editing, this is a satisfying thriller that is worth a look.
