I was Taken by Liam Neeson

Sunday has always been a movie marathon day for us and since my hubby can't decide on what movie to watch, I grabbed the remote control from him and chose 'Taken'. I believe this is the turning point in Liam Neeson's career as this was his first action film and it definitely was a hit.

The first 'Taken' was about his daughter being kidnapped while in Paris. With his skills as a former CIA and the drive of a father who just wanted to get his daughter back, he was able to track all the bad guys and eventually, rescue his daughter. The scene where he was at Rue de Paradis and disguised himself as one of the French police was nerve racking! It was one against six and he beat them all. That is my favourite scene. (^-^)

Now, we're on the second instalment of the Taken series. I believe that on this movie, it's his wife who's going to be kidnapped by the bad guys who was seeking revenge against Bryan Mills (Liam's character). The bad guys this time are the relatives of the Albanians that Bryan Mills killed on the first movie, thus the revenge they wanted against him.

Well, the movie has started so let me just finish this up and get back with Liam Neeson. I am just so taken with his look and most especially, his voice!

I saw the first and second Takens. Both good but the first one was definitely better. Are you going to see the third one when it comes out, or will you wait until it gets released on dvd? For some reason, I can NOT remember the scene where he is dressed as a french cop...but I like anyone in a police uniform :D Lol

Began1988 We will surely watch the Taken 3 as soon as it's out in the cinemas! And with regard to that French police thing? I believe that's in the first movie, because he followed his daughter in Paris, right? The second Taken movie was when he and his wife was kidnapped in Istanbul. :)

Liam Neeson is one actor who never seems to age.

Even though Liam Neeson is far too old for me, I always find myself glued to the screen when he is on. I love the 1st Taken film, but the 2nd wasn't as good in my opinion

Yes. I just don't remember the particular scene. I'l try to find it and see if it's on youtube! Sounds like a good scene lol!

soupdragon I definitely agree! I have started admiring him since his Les Miserables days until now :)

indeed it is!

Louemham oh, too bad you didn't like the second film that much. I think the 3rd Taken film is also good, would you watch it in theatres or wait for it to be out on DVD?

I really can't remember if i have already watched the second of Taken . But the first one was really a very suspenseful one. Perhaps Taken 3 is also as good.

Heard that 'Taken 3', Liam Neeson's family dog was kidnapped and that is the start of the story. LOL!

Anyway, looking forward to watching 'Taken 3' myself. Looking at the trailer, it seems it took a page from the movie 'The Fugitive'.

allen0187 haha! this time, it's his wife who was murdered (not kidnapped) and Liam is the primary suspect.
