Rotten: Neeson's] performance is the most perturbing thing in the film, even more so than its electrical-torture sequence or its revelations about sex-trafficking.

Fresh: With some suspension of disbelief and a strong stomach, it's possible to get taken in, or at least absorbed, by this adrenaline-pumping action thriller.

Bryan Mills: Retired not dead. At first, I thought this was going to be boring (high ratings doesn't impress me that much......well sometimes). But this came out to be a brilliant movie. I'm not into this type of movies. I always find myself liking the peculiar ones. But this was serious. Happens in real lives (only if your daddy is not as smart as Lian Neeson, you're screwed!). Liam's voice scares me (wonder if it scared the criminal...a tiny bit at least.......hmmm). Liked the ending (as it's a happy one).

Ridiculously hilarious, dumb & cheap action flick, The whole family thing makes this even more annoying

Yes a truely well portrayed film. Liam Neeson steals the show, I never thought an actor this old could pack punch for pound, overly unbelievable but yet shimmers of truth pitched in the storyline and character. The honest thing to say is if you liked, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, then you'll find this entertaining. Its a thriller with plenty of well choreographed fight scenes, and realistic baddies.
