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.

"I don't know who you are, I don't know what you want, but if you don't let my daughter go, I will find you and I WILL KILL YOU"......One of the coolest quotes in any movie, and definitely one of my favorites. The film definitely has a lot of action, great suspense, and an overall great storyline. The ratings here on RT do not do this film ANY justice; I thought it was a great mystery/suspense film that I would recommend to anyone.

Amazing movie, with the best quote ever! 'I don't Know Who You Are, I don't Know what you want, But If you Don't let My Daughter Go, I Will Find You And I WILL KILL YOU' I Love that quote so much! An amazing movie, powerful, rich and just fantastic! Liam Neeson is superb choice as the leading man and he did a fantastic job! Its explosive and action packed and a great job on Luc Besson part who i love also and this is one of his bettter written scripts! I would recommend this movie to everyone!

TAKEN wasn't as great a thriller as I seem to be hearing. Without a few missteps, it would have been a flawless action movie. The major step it takes in the wrong direction is the fact that the script and one of the central characters (Kim) seemed a little too out of line. Maggie Grace portrays Kim as if she were celebrating her twelfth birthday, not her seventeenth. It's also the fault of the script for making her a character who has aspired to be a singer since she was five years old. Honestly, how many people wish to pursue the same dream in their teen years as they did in their early childhoods? It also brought me into somewhat explosive laughter when her cell phone was ringing in her purse, and the contact name showed up as "Daddy". She seems to below her age in this movie that I can't imagine her eventuating as a prostitute.
