No fanfare Huh? You sure it wasn't up for a Palm D'or at Cannes? Maybe it's too esoteric for that eh? Then perhaps some obscure award from the Sundance Festival?
No?

I wonder why.
You do realise that a film doesn't HAVE to win any awards to be really quite enjoyable?

No I didn't think of that. Doh!

Do you think that Taken 2 will be bypassed for accolades as well,or just maybe this time a movie in the Taken franchise will get what it deserves?

Which other movies have the hero shooting a "baddie" in the back as he comes down some stairs? Or shooting an innocent woman?

The fight scenes are so economical and efficient!

Wonderful film.

She was not innocent; her hubby was a bent policeman (accepting vice money to look the other way), but worse than that she was born FRENCH ffs. Guilty as charged and cannon fodder grade 1.

I've seen Taken a few times and it is great. I've got the DVD hard extreme something or other edition but haven't watched it yet. Is there much difference to the regular film?

Also looking forward muchly to Taken 2 smile

Mills "If I kill you your other sons will come and take revenge?" Baddy, "They Will", Mills "Then I will kill them too".

It's going to be a small family by the time Taken 3 is released.

I really hope it rocks
I hadnt seen Taken till a short while ago but it was a great, no brainer,action film. it helped I think that Neeson didnt look the sort to be able to kill every mother fker in the room...until he did.
now we know he's a bad ass.
Loved him at the end too: Sheikh.."lets make a..BANG DEAD SPLAT" smile

Taken was SO well done "we use to outsource this kind of thing..."
I SO SO SO hope they do a good job on the second, want to see Leland Orser be a real bad MoFo in it too - that guy could really deliver.
