Movie Review: Taken

We borrowed the movie “Taken” from JonesBuster. I must say that JonesBuster has a wonderful selection of movies, I highly recommend them. We watched in Monday Evening after our daughter went to bed. The tension built immediately. They did a wonderful job keeping you on the edge of the seat. Overall the movie was great, I loved it. There were a couple of disturbing scenes, mostly when “Peter” gets hit by a truck. I have also heard comments about the main character being too brutal to the bad guys, though I must say, that if I were in his position, I don’t know if I would be very kind and loving to them either. Suffice to say, I recommend the film, but top those who are a little older, definitly not for your 12 year old.

    I went to the movie theater to see “Taken”. I LOVED it!!! I agree that it started out exciting and kept me on my seat the whole time. And no, I wouldn’t be nice to the bad guys either.

    I thought this was one of the most action-packed movies I’ve seen in a long time where the good guy just keeps on hammering the bad guys. I admit I was disturbed with a couple of the scenes you mentioned, but other than that, wow! I didn’t sleep one minute in this one!

    I concur. I liked this movie too. Action packed and I could feel the anxious tension in my shoulders building up not even an eighth of the way through it! Whew!

    Taken was great! I loved it, bad guys got what was coming to them!
    My favorite revenge movies:
    Sergio Leone’s “Once upon a time in the west” with Henry Fonda, Jason Robards and Charles Bronson

    Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill 1 & 2″ with Uma Thurman

    and on the top of my netflix (I haven’t seen it yet)
    “Straw dogs” with Dustin Hoffman
