I personally think Empire are way off in regards to this film by giving it only 1 star. It's well paced, full of decent choreographed action and has some reasonable acting. Yes it's over the top, yes the storyline is flawed but if you want to watch something that doesn't require a lot of thinking then this should be on your list.

The action was so eyesore and the pace was so butchered that it goes so damned fast till the point that you have to pause it, to process what the heck you've just watched. No character development, unrealistic storyline... What are the odds that the daughter of the ex-CIA agent just happened to be the daughter of an ex-CIa agent?? What are those odds? It's just an utter mess and a worthless 90 minutes. I seriously don't believe how
people can say that 'The Last Airbender' is worse than this...

Wether you like it or hate it, Taken does not deserve 1 star. This is one of the worst Empire judgements in recent years. There's undeniable entertainment on offer in this movie with some decent action and a solid performance from Neeson. It's a genre film but a cut above.

It's a straight forward action movie that pretty much gets to the point. The action scenes were done fairly well and the movie flows quite well, however, the plot line is a bit simple and the acting once or twice will make you put your head in your hands. Overall it is a fairly decent watch.

Personally i think this film is highly enjoyable, if your in the mood for something commando style where one man takes on an army then this is the film to watch. The actings good, Liam Neeson is fantastic as always and the fight sequences are very well done. 5 stars from me as i can watch this over and over.

I've been told by at least two dozen people this is an awesome film and I should definitely watch it. I did. I was distressed by a lot of the implications the film presents. Not the violence, I knew what I was getting into here, but the father/daughter oddness, the blatant racial stereotypes and yes, the bit where he shoots an innocent woman just for being married to the prick he's interviewing. I watched with mates who reasoned, he's really angry and wants his daughter back! And that makes it ok! To SHOOT a woman who has no connection to anything involved in his twisted issues belying a very odd connection to his daughter. I'm sorry but NO. Just god, no! I can let the explosions from nowhere slide, the fact Liam Neeson gets shot directly in the back and side and is completely unfazed go, but no. This a cheap shlock of action that offers nothing of interest to me. Not only is the story ludricrous to the point of distraction but just the character Liam Neeson plays is completely detestable. I'm not saying that the trafficking and sex trade is not indeed, horrid and very real, but this film presents it as nothing more than a seedy underbelly showing Americans that all of Europe is festering with this horrible idealism that would destroy any young girl DUMB ENOUGH TO TAKE A MAN SHE JUST MET IN A TAXI WITH HER!... ... Phew. In short. Just horrible. Horrible. Horrible. And if anyone recommends anything like this to me again I will electrocute them with nails and a light switch.

I have issues with Taken, its tone and subject matter somehow doesn't sit well with me, but it's still well done for what it is, essentially an action movie. Beats Bond IMHO

This is my first ever blog, I was compelled to sign up and add a comment as I was so shocked at the 1 star here. Ok its not the most believable scenario but I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I did fiim studies at uni, not that it gives me any more worthy an opinion but just to show my level of interest in film. I feel slightly embarrassed to say this on here now but, I loooooved it !!! 4/5

This reviewer sounds like a total wet liberal PC brigader. Death Wish would probably make him faint. I didn't buy Liam Neeson as an all-American white knight myself, maybe if this was a Bruce Willis film...
