I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have 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'll 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.

Reminds me of this quote from 'The Unit'

No matter how blessed our lives, how charmed our existence, things still inevitably, irrevocably, go wrong. Your mother is swindled out of her savings. Your estranged husband runs off with your kids. Your best friend goes on vacation in a foreign land and disappears. Eventually, bad things find us all. You ever hear of the Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free card? This is a Get-Out-of-Hell card. At some point in your life, God forbid, you have no where else to turn, call that number. That is why you are going to postpone your job.

Love Taken, really hope the sequel is up to the challenge of following the first.

To be fair it's a pretty low bar to equal.

Taken is a terrible movie from a number of viewpoints,acting,directing,plot,script ..the bottom of the barrel was truly scraped when they made the first one.

GTFO!











You are the right though. At the end of the day I watch films for enjoyment, I enjoyed it, job done. Perhaps I am a philistine?

Taken didn't need an inside out twisty plot or Phillip Seymour Hoffman, it was a good old formula of 1 good guy takes on many bad guys to get his daughter back, and had my household riveted to the sofa the whole time. Rarely have I seen a film in the last decade where every time Neeson took out a bad guy you almost felt like cheering.

I'm sick and tired of movies that rely on visual tricks, overly complicated silly plots and the opproval of a group of pretentious self important critics the same way that Damien Hirst confuses his audience into thinking his art is brilliant.

It isn't, you made a st film full of pretentious twaddle with an ending so confusing and pointless that I just wasted 2 hours of my life.

Inception - don't get me started on that seeping pustule of a movie.

fk it - just bring back Arnie.

I really liked the first Taken.

The storyline was fairly straight forward, the action was brutal and the main character was cool.
If you want a complicated storyline, but the same level of action, then watch the Bourne trilogy.

Hope the second one follows the same basic formula.

I watched UNKNOWN last night. The still above could have been taken from that film. Liam Neilson plays....Liam Neilson.

Very predictable, guessed the ending early on, but not a bad few hours.

Oh god, please don't feck this up Hollywood.

Yeah the first one isn't perfect - Girls best friend britally murdered, girl all smiles and happiness an 8 hour flight later.

But it was brilliant - no bullst, no pithy Bondesq one-lines, no Borneesq super-solder nonsense, a gritty belivable story and a Hero that shows the signs of the stuff he's had to do.
