Taken | 2008 | Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen,


Liam Neeson stars as former CIA operative Bryan Mills, who’s desperate to track down his kidnapped daughter (Maggie Grace) in Pierre Morel’s Luc Besson-produced action thriller. Mills’s life hasn’t panned out well; his dedication to the CIA wrecked his marriage and made him neglect his daughter Kim. Now, retired from the Agency, he wants to make things up to Kim. But to do so, he has to contend with his ex-wife’s (Famke Janssen) animosity and Kim’s new step-dad’s wealth. So when he has an opportunity to advance Kim’s pop star ambitions he jumps at the chance, even if that means her and a friend crossing the Atlantic to brave “the dangers of Europe”.

As things turn out, he has a point; in Paris, the two girls are kidnapped by vicious Eastern European sex traffickers. As they are being abducted, Bryan tells, via Kim’s mobile, one of the baddies: “I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you”. He does his best to make good on his promise, using all the violent tricks of the trade his time at the CIA taught him.
