TAKEN (Theatrical Release Canada 2008)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Taken—rough movie—has a need to be told story with a good cautionary message for parents with independent teens. The film has an excellent presentation that is backed with an outstanding performance of Liam Neeson at his best. Don’t miss this watch. It completely involves its audience.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This movie runs on an exceptionally good storyline and is a good, instructive watch to share with older children. Liam Neeson heads the acting profession in his portrayal of an ex-CIA man seeking the whereabouts of a beloved daughter. Terrific writing. The timing of each scene is well done and follows good sequencing. The movie could easily be missed. Do not miss it. It is well worth its watch on many levels and for many reasons.
