Taken is the most recent take on the kidnapping movie. It follows Liam Neeson's character after his daughter is kidnapped in Paris. He plays a retired CIA "preventer" who takes finding his daughter into his own hands.
The film isn't anything original and is predictable at times. It is a good movie for some good old butt kicking, and Neeson is bad ass. The fight scenes reminded me of the Bourne trilogy in the cinematography, and that is not a bad thing. The beginning I felt moved a little slow, but that is because I was looking forward to the butt kicking and didn't care about the character development of the film.
