After hearing some good things about the movie, "taken" the wife thought we should check it out from Blockbuster the other night. Overall, its a great flick, filmed in the classic Luc Besson style (go watch The professional/ transporter flicks). Yeah, the story has some holes, and the idea is fairly simple; but the shit kicking that Liam Neeson lays down in this flick is reason enough to watch it. Now I am a big Neeson fan, as the dude seems like a straight up no nonsense type of guy. I loved the fact that he dispells the whole "lets have a chat before i kill you" bullshit that Hollywood flicks are based on; as he just shows up, lays a beating and moves on. So if you dig on movies like the professional, and the Borne Identity, hit it up.
