Follow Liam Neeson as he seeks justice in Taken

Taken (2008)

With Taken, Liam Neeson transformed from a generally likable actor into a full-fledged, action hero badass. Chronicling the story of an ex-CIA operative who sets out to rescue his kidnapped daughter from an Albanian human trafficking ring, this immensely entertaining action flick follows Neeson's character as he dodges bullets and incoming fists at an astonishing rate. Neeson dispatches bad guy after bad guy with admirable aplomb; indeed, he seems to take a perverse glee in inventing new ways to kill the various henchman he encounters throughout the movie. While Taken certainly didn't garner any Academy Awards, it provides all of the thrills necessary for us to anoint it as a bona fide modern classic within the action movie genre.
