>Taken (2008)


“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.”

I’m not an action film lover, hence the difficult I had to ellaborate a list of good action films when my aunt asked me to, I mostly wait to see films of this genre on dvd, and I either love them or completely forget about them by the next week. Taken fits in the first case, and I’m afraid I can blame it on Liam Neeson‘s character, a cross between Jack Bauer, Captain Nascimento and Jason Bourne – God, what’s not to love? He plays a retired agent who won’t stop within the next 96 hours, not until he finds his kidnapped daughter (the actress is terrible, but since she’s missing during the entire film…) while showing little or no mercy for those who dared to step on his way. The action takes place in Paris, a city for the first time turned into no man’s land. So much fun.
