|"Olivier? I'm hearing this movie just might suck the big one."|
I greatly enjoyed the first "Taken" film. I like elegant action films in the vein of the first Bourne movie, and Liam Neeson excelled as an aging ex-CIA agent relentlessly pursuing his daughter's kidnappers. We felt his pain and confliction as he did horrible things in the name of getting his daughter back, and his exhaustion at pushing himself beyond his limits was plausible. Those of us who are familiar with Liam Neeson may have been surprised that his character was even still alive at the end of the film.
